Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee rejected West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee's offer of talks and stuck to her demand for returning 400 acres of land to 'unwilling' sellers of land.
"I am ready to discuss anything with her. All issues raised by her party can be discusssed," Bhattacharjee told newsmen after writing a fresh letter to Banerjee.
In his letter, Bhattacharjee said, "As a responsible Opposition leader you must appreciate that the quick implementation of the project is very important for the state.
"We are facing a critical situation when many other states have offered the Tatas to shift their small car plant from Singur," he said.
Asking the Trinamool Congress to join hands with the government to implement the Tata project, Bhattacharjee had said he was optimistic of a solution.
