Denying media reports quoting him that the Nano car plant would return to Singur,West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Monday said many project proposals for the site abandoned by the Tata Motors were lying with the state government.

“I never said that the Nano project will return to Singur…Many project proposals for the site abandoned by the Tata Motors are lying with the state government. They would be screened and finalised after the Lok Sabha elections,” Bhattacharjee said at a ‘Meet-the-Press’ programme here.

He,however,did not specify what type of projects were pending clearance at Singur.

Ruling out any further discussion with Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee on her old demand for return of 400 acres at the Singur project site,Bhattacharjee said,”Now I feel I should not have discussed the issue at all with her.”
