High court verdict on Singur land tomorrow

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee addresses a rally at Singur to observe 'Singur Diwas' in Hooghly district on Monday.
The Calcutta High Court is likely to pass on Wednesday its judgement on Tata Motors Limited's (TML) challenge of the Singur Land Act by which West Bengal government vested the Singur land leased to the company.

The judgement is scheduled to be passed at 10:30 am by the court of Justice I P Mukerji
Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee said that the Singur issue is over now and the land of the Tatas' Nano car factory, since relocated, at Singur is now in government custody and will be returned to the unwilling farmers from whom it had been “forcibly taken away,” once the court verdict is delivered”

She says that she plans to set up a Metro coach factory in Singur if Calcutta High Court gave a favourable verdict in the land dispute with the Tatas.

The Trinamul Congress observes Singur Divas every year on September 26 to mark the death of Raj Kumar Bhul, a party supporter who was killed in a police assault in 2006 during the anti land-acquisition movement led by Mamata.
