No Chemical Hub at Nayachar or Nandigram: Mamata

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjeee today said her government will not allow setting up of a chemical hub at Nandigram or Nayachar, and promote only eco-friendly projects there to encourage "development without pollution".

"My government will not allow a chemical hub either at Nayachar Island or Nandigram. We are planning to promote environment-friendly eco-tourism at Nayachar and eco-friendly industry at Nandigram to encourage development without pollution," the Chief Minister told a rally here in East Midnapore district.

"I have never forgotten Nandigram. Singur-Nandigram have been milestones in my life," Banerjee said adding "I can never forget the sacrifices made by people of Nandigram. We can never forget the atrocities in the name of sunrise."

She said the "atrocities" carried out in Nandigram were a "dark chapter" in the history of Bengal and her government would never allow them to repeat.

"I am happy to be back in Nandigram. Stay safe, stay healthy," she said.

Earlier the Chief Minister visited Nayachar with several company heads to explore the place as a possible eco-tourism destination.

Banerjee urged the captains of industry to submit their proposals or opinions within four days about how the island could be developed.
