Buddha confident of Bengal's industrialisation
Kolkata (PTI): Breaking his silence since the pull-out of the Nano project from Singur, West Bengal Chief Minister on Sunday said no right-thinking person of the state had been happy with the irresponsible behaviour of the Opposition, but maintained that industrialisation process will go ahead.
"No right-thinking people are happy with the withdrawal of the Nano project just ahead of the Durga Puja festival." However, Ratan Tata had said that he was not leaving forever and he would invest in the state in future, Bhattacharjee said.
"We have lost one battle, but the war is not lost. We must fight and overcome the obstacles for going ahead. We want to raise our head again," Bhattacharjee, who had taken a keen interest to bring the Nano project in the state, said after laying the foundation stone for Orion Techcity, a 155-acre integrated IT SEZ at Rajarhat here. The Chief Minister wondered why the Opposition failed to understand the need for industrialisation in the state.
"They give importance to agriculture. We also give importance to agriculture in which the state has been self-sufficient. But only agriculture will not help us for further progress, it needs industrialisation for total development," he said.
Bhattacharjee regretted the loss of job opportunities for the young people who hoped for a bright future.
