Tata group not to leave West Bengal, says Mistry
Kolkata: Chairman of Tata Sons Cyrus Mistry today said that the group has no intention to leave West Bengal.
"Tatas have never left West Bengal. We will never leave West Bengal as a group," Mistry told shareholders at the AGM of Tata Global Beverages.
Mistry, who chaired the meeting for the first time after becoming the Chairman of Tata Sons last year, succeeding Ratan Tata, declined to make any comment on the Supreme Court's recent observations on Singur.
"The matter is sub-judice and we do not want to discuss at this stage," Mistry told reporters after the meeting.
The apex court had said that the Tata Motors should make its stand clear on its leasehold rights over the Singur land in the wake of the changed scenario as the company had already moved its Nano car plant out of West Bengal to Gujarat.
