With the Tatas seeking a clarification on the land holding pattern after Sunday's agreement between West Bengal government and Trinamool Congress, the authorities on Monday ruled out any change in the Tata Motors' Singur plant or relocation of the vendors' park.
"There will not be any change in the Tata project nor any relocation of vendors' park," the state's Commerce and Industry Minister Nirupam Sen told reporters in the presence of Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharjee in Kolkata.
Reacting to claims by Trinamool Congress leaders after talks at Raj Bhavan on Sunday night about the land to be returned, Sen said the Nano car plant and vendor's park are an integrated project "and it is a very important issue".
"The state government did not even agree at the meeting to make any change in the Tata project or relocation of vendor's park because this is an integrated project", Sen said.
He said Tata Motors Managing Director Ravi Kant sought to know from the state government the actual position concerned over Trinamool leaders' claim after the meeting that land would be given back from inside the main project site.
