The ruling CPI(M) in West Bengal and BJP on Friday welcomed Mamata Banerjee's decision to end her hunger strike and the Left party said it is willing to discuss the Singur issue with the Trinamool Congress chief.
While expressing happiness at Banerjee deciding to call off the fast, BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar accused the Left of "double standards".
He said the communists took one one line in Kolkata and another in New Delhi and if the state government was really interested in resolving the issue, it should shift the project site or provide adequate to those displaced by the Tata automomobile project in Singur.
CPI(M) leader Nilotpal Basu welcomed the TC chief's decision to end her 25-day-old fast but dismissed as an "outlandish", the BJP's criticism.
He said the state government was willing to discuss all issues relating to the Singur project with her.
