3. Mamata Renews Stand on Tajpur Port

Bengal chief minister on Tuesday iterated that her government would develop the proposed deep-sea port in East Midnapore’s Tajpur on its own even though Nabanna is yet to formally communicate its decision to the Centre which is supposed to execute the project jointly with the state.

“We had given 74 per cent stake to the Centre to develop Tajpur port during the tenure of former shipping minister Nitin Gadkari in 2017. But the project has come to a halt. We want to do it on our own,” Mamata Banerjee said during a programme to inaugurate a business convention centre at Digha, around 18km from the proposed Rs 13,000 crore project.
