The Tata Motors team led by its managing director G Ravikant and accompanied by Karnataka Industry Minister Murugesh Nirani visited three places in and around the twin cities of Hubli-Dharwad in Karnataka — the Belur Industrial area, Mummiatti and another site in the vicinity of the airport near Hubli.
The team also met Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa to discuss the offer made by the state to the company to shift the Nano project to Karnataka. Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Yeddyurappa said: “I have made an offer and assured them of all facilities, including land, water and power. Now it is for them (the Tatas) to communicate.”
He added that he would also hold talks with Tata chairman Ratan Tata. It is the fourth round of discussions that Karnataka had with the company after it pulled out of Singur.
But in Andhra Pradesh there was protest from farmers fearing forced land deals.
