Kolkata, Sep 14 (TIWN) Underlining her commitment to the welfare of farmers, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday commemorated the third anniversary of the 'historic day' when the Trinamool Congress government handed over to the farmers the land records forcibly acquired from them by the erstwhile Left Front regime in Singur for the Tata Motors' Nano project.

"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.

"We reiterate our commitment to the welfare of farmers, alongside promoting industry. My humble pronam to Maa, Mati, Manush," Banerjee posted on her Twitter handle.

Singur - the Hooghly district rural belt that had played a key role in catapulting Banerjee to power eight years back, dealt a big blow to the Trinamool in the Lok Sabha polls earlier this year when the party's sitting MP Ratna De (Nag) lost to the BJP's Locket Chatterjee in the Hooghly Lok Sabha seat. Not only that, De trailed Chatterjee by 73,362 votes in the Singur Assembly segment.
