CM announces newer projects for South 24 Parganas

Chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday inaugurated a polytechnic college at Baruipur`s Atghara.

She praised work of the police in handling the Ganga Sagar Mela so well (which had 12 lakh people this year). Also, 2.75 lakh jobs had already been offered by the government – where she had promised 10 lakh jobs.

She said that development would continue. Two polytechnic and two ITIs would be set up in the district, a flyover and a stadium would be constructed in Baruipur, as well as the Canning stadium.

She said the former government had left behind nothing, so she and her colleagues had to work overtime now. Ms. Banerjee said that the Centre was responsible for the price of paddy and the fertilizer price had increased after the subsidy was lifted in 2010. “I am the farmers` friend,“ she reiterated.
