Partha Pratim Ray demands Cooch Behar be included under BRGF scheme
Sir, Cooch Behar district, my constituency, is 52% SC, 27% Muslim-minority populated. At the same time it is economically backward region; it is an agri-based district. There are no major industries.
Almost 3 lakh people who go to different States as labourers every year. Per capita credit and deposits are also not satisfactory in comparison to national average.
Under these circumstances, I demand that Cooch Behar district be included under the BRGF scheme.
Thank you, Sir.
