Sudip Bandyopadhyay raises the issue of bad condition of National Highways in Bengal | Transcript
Sir, 34 MPs met the hon. Minister at his office and discussed about the deteriorating condition of National Highways in Bengal, specially the NH-6 and NH-34. Two days ago our CM was travelled via road approximately 400 km from Kolkata to Raiganj. It took more than nine hours to cover this distance via the National Highways. This was big news in the local media in West Bengal.
You gave a proposal that either CM can come to Delhi for discussion or you, along with all your officials, will go to Kolkata to discuss the matter with the District Magistrates of the districts involved. I discussed with the CM and she told me to write to you a letter conveying that she is prepared as per your convenience anytime between 25th and 29th of this month. I want to ask the hon. Minister whether you are willing to go to West Bengal in the scheduled period to discuss the wretched condition of the National Highways.
