Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has stepped up the efforts to overcome the financial loss created by the ouster of Tata Nano from West Bengal. Finance Minister Amit Mitra has initiated large scale efforts to bring the investor back to Bengal and his attempts have shown results as well.

Anil Ambani, chairman of the Anil Dhirubhai Group (ADAG), is likely to meet the CM soon. Non-resident Indian businessman Prasoon Mukherjee has also shown keen interest to invest in Medinipur’s Nayachar.

Mitra who remained FICCI chief for a long time is said to have close contacts with several national and international industrialists.
According to Mitra, “We have been in close touch with several industrialists. We have a meeting with the industrialist on June 18. We will address all the issues in the meeting. We have been saying that investment will rise with the arrival of Trinamool Government and unemployment will go down.”

The meeting is likely to be attended by the representatives of Tata, Aditya Birla Group, Bajaj, Ambuja and RPG Group.

Economic advisor Abhirup Sarkar says that Mamata will welcome the industrialist to the state. Left Front had tried to project an anti investor image of Mamata after the eviction of Tata Nano project from the state.
