Singur protest continue.

Indian authorities deployed 3000 police at Tata Motors' plant in West Bengal as protesters defied a threat from group chairman Ratan Tata to scrap the factory for its US$2500 ($3600) Nano car unless demonstrations ended.
About 30,000 people demonstrated outside the plant on Monday, protesting against the taking of farmland for the factory.
At least 500 people were yesterday camped outside the site in Singur in West Bengal.
Tata said he may relocate the plant to protect employees from violent protests, jeopardising a 15 billion rupee investment. Delays in completing the factory may upset Tata Motors' plan to introduce the Nano this year and increase the project cost.
The Trinamool Congress, an Indian political party leading the protest, is demanding that 162ha of land is returned to farmers.
Amar Singh, leader of the Samajwadi Party, attended Monday's rally outside the plant. Amar Singh's party helped Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's government win a confidence vote in July after communist parties withdrew support.

West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee is willing to meet Trinamool Congress Party leader Mamata Banerjee to discuss the issues raised by her party, the Press Trust of India said, citing comments made by the chief minister.
Tata Motors is betting that its ultra-low priced Nano will entice first-time car buyers in the nation where more than 45 million people use motorcycles.
The 623cc Nano is crucial for Tata Motors, India's biggest truck maker, to boost sales as seven-year high interest rates and the fastest inflation in more than 16 years damp demand for vehicles in India.
Tata's sales fell 8.9 per cent in July.

I found Mamta Banerjee in a very new mood, I ask her few rapid fire question ,you can watch the complete interview on Saturday @6:30pm @ Star News & on 9pm @ Star Ananda
