Singur: The West Bengal government on Tuesday returned a token 11.5 acres out of the 997.97 acres land acquired for the abandoned Tata Motors’ Nano project to 12 farmers who had unwillingly parted with their land.

The Singur high power committee which was set up by the state government returned the 11.5 acres of substitute land to 12 unwilling farmers of Gopalnagar and Kolaypara, Manik Das, a zilla parishad member from Beraberi, told reporters here after the programme.

“We have returned the same quantum of land among the unwilling landowners,” he said.

The farmers were given substitute land in Gopalnagar and Kolaypara where their original holdings were, he said.

Becha Ram Manna, Trinamool leader and convenor of the Krishi Jami Raksha Samiti said, “The unwilling farmers will be able to sell the land returned or use it for whichever purpose they want.”

The 12 unwilling farmers were earlier identified, he informed. (PTI)
