Kolkata: West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Thursday turned down the Trinamool Congress’ demand that the land of the unwilling farmers at Singur, acquired for the Tata Motors small car project, should be returned, but said an alternative proposal was being worked out by the state government. Emerging from the core committee meeting of the state cabinet, public works department minister Kshiti Goswami told reporters that Bhattacharjee informed the meeting that “the land acquired for the Tata project cannot be returned. There are legal hurdles and boundary wall was also constructed.” PTI
