Kolkata, Aug 11 (IANS) Absence of big-ticket investments, closure of iconic units and the menace of extortion have clouded the industrial scenario in West Bengal, notwithstanding the state government’s tall claims of success. The MSME sector, however, provides a silver lining. Last week, state Industries and Finance Minister Amit Mitra said: “The list of industries eager to set up shop here in Bengal is so long that I will need a whole day to read it out.” However, most projects he mentioned were conceived by the erstwhile Left Front regime. According to a leading city-based industrialist, the absence of any big project is worrisome.
