Doors to Invest in Bengal Open: Trinamool MP


After Ratan Tata's remarks that there was no sign of industrialisation in West Bengal, Trinamool MP today said the doors to investing in the state are always open to anyone.

"Let me say this our doors are always open to anyone who wishes to invest in Bengal and be a part of the progress of the state," TMC state president Subrata Bakshi told PTI.

He said that if an industrialist is eager to invest in Bengal, they should engage in direct talks with the government. The state government has an open mind and is ready to talk to investors who come up with concrete investment proposals.

Without naming Tata, he said "Statements, fleeting observations and counter statements are not the way forward."

Trinamool Congress national general secretary and leader of its parliamentary party Mukul Roy said "In terms of national indices, if you compare the national GDP and state GSDP, one would get a clear picture that Bengal is on the fast track to progress."

Chairman emeritus of Tata Sons, Ratan Tata had recently said that while driving from the airport through Rajarhat in the city he had come across beautiful buildings but it looked like a countryside under development with no signs of industrialisation.

Tata's remarks were strongly countered by state industry minister Amit Mitra who had said he may be suffering from delusion.

The scale of protests have led to frayed tempers in the mainland with many resorting to high-voltage jingoism. But how well do you know Kashmir? Find out, take this quiz.
