Arpita Ghosh speaks about problems faced by people in border areas | Transcript

Respected Madam, thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to speak during this zero hour. Madam, my constituency of Balurghat in West Bengal consists of whole South Dinajpur district and Itahar block of North Dinajpur district. South Dinajpur is surrounded by Bangladesh border; those border areas have the presence of Border Security Force for security reasons.

But Madam, during the election campaign, people complained about BSF consistently; BSF are creating a lot of nuisance there. They are troubling the local villages a lot for no reasons. Through you I would like to request the concerned Honorable Minister to take the necessary action regarding this, which will help the people of the border areas of my constituency, especially Hili block which is adjacent to the Bangladesh border.

Hope you will look into the matter for helping the common people over there. Thank you.
