Idris Ali makes a Zero Hour mention on the problem of flooding in his constituency
I am grateful to you Madam Speaker and I am also grateful to our Hon’ble Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who is working hard.
Basirhat constituency is a part of Sunderbans area and is annexed with the district of North 24 Parganas covering blocks of Sandeshkhali I & II, Hingalganj, Haroa, Minakhan, Hansnabad, all of which are surrounded by tidal rivers of Ichhamati, Bidydhari, Kutti, Damsa, Raymangal besides being crisscrossed by numerous creeks and channels. Hence during the monsoon, flood is the common problem of the major portion of my constituency. Thus, recurring floods damage the roads and the dimension of the land.
I urge upon the Government for construction of ‘scientific concrete road’ which could be the permanent solution of these areas. I would therefore request you to issue an order for a detailed project report (DPR) with proper survey and sanction budget accordingly from PMGSRY and I hope that the department should take proactive steps as soon as possible.
Lastly, I would like to add, Madam, that the Chief Minister of Bengal works for people of all religions. The CM of Uttar Pradesh must follow her lead.
