My govt committed to the welfare of peasants: Mamata

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said that her government is committed to the welfare of the peasants and also to promote industry in the state.

Mamata remembered the day, three years ago when she handed over to the peasants of Singur 'parchas' (documents) of their land forcibly acquired by the then Left Front government for the Tata's Nano factory and described it as a "historic day".

"Today marks the third anniversary of the historic day when our Govt of #Bangla handed over to farmers the 'parchas' of land forcibly acquired in Singur," Mamata wrote on her Twitter handle.

"We reiterate our commitment to the welfare of farmers, alongside promoting industry. My humble pronam to 'Maa, Mati, Manush'," she added.
