Trinamool Congress will soon move the Supreme Court challenging the Calcutta High Court order that land acquistion for the Tata Motors small car plant at Singur was legal, party supremo Mamata Banerjee said in Kolkata on Friday.

"We were awaiting the high court verdict on the issue for the last one year and now the court has given its verdict. We will move the apex court as early as possible," Banerjee, whose party had led the anti-land acquisition movement at Singur, told reporters at her residence.

"Court orders at times are favourable and sometimes they are not. Unlike the CPI(M), which criticises the court when a verdict goes against it, we have total respect and faith in the judiciary," Banerjee said.

To a question, she said the party's movement against land acquisition would continue.

"Our agitation is against the West Bengal government, the Centre as well as the Tatas."
