West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said landowners in Singur will get possession of land after Durga Puja festival.

“After Puja all land owners will get their land back. It will be fit for agriculture,” Banerjee said after an administrative review meeting here in Hooghly district.

She said she was happy to be part of the fight of farmers who were getting back their land.

State minister Partha Chatterjee said they were never against industries, but against having industries on a multi-crop land.

“We were never against the Tatas. We told them you can do the factory on the other side,” he said.

According to him, 1,768 land owners have so far taken cheques from the government while 10,747 ‘parchas’ (land deeds) have been given so far.
