Jharkhand Chief Minister Shibu Soren on Saturday renewed his appeal to Tata Motors [Get Quote] to set up its Nano car project in the state and assured to provide all facilities.
"The 100-year-old Tata company is a Jharkhand company and we are assuring Tata Motors assistance to set up their Nano car project in the state," Soren said, addressing industrialists at 'Canvas India-2008' trade fair in Jamshedpur.
"When we can allot huge tracts of land and other facilities to the Tatas to set up a steel plant as well as an automobile unit in Jharkhand, cannot we provide a small piece of land for the Nano project in Jharkhand?" he asked and suggested that the company leave Singur, where it is facing resistance.
Soren had made a similar offer a month ago when he assumed power.
Jharkhand Industry Minister Sudhir Mahto had said Tata Motors could identify land anywhere in the state for the small car project and the government would provide land and other facilities at the earliest.
