Bid to speed up development in Lalgarh

Raktima Bose

LALGARH: In a bid to speed up the development process in the Lalgarh region and to restore normality there through confidence-building measures, officials of the State government held a series of meetings here on Thursday with the Deputy Inspector-General (Medinipur Range), several block level officials and panchayat members.

Admitting that there has been a disruption in executing development projects in the region due to the circumstance prevailing here for the last seven months, Sourav Das, Secretary of Public Health Engineering, told media persons: “The objective henceforth will be to give the projects an impetus and their quick implementation.”

Commencing State transport bus service on the Medinipur-Lalgarh route on the day was the first step taken towards restoring normalcy in the area.

Six South Bengal State Transport Corporation buses will ply on the route daily, escorted by security personnel.

Mr. Das said more buses would be pressed into service on other routes as well which had to be discontinued following the unrest.

A day after discovering that many people are unable to collect relief material due to the absence of ration cards, most of which have been lost by ration dealers who had kept them in their possession, State Milk Commissioner Barun Ray said that officials of the Food Department have been asked to issue duplicate ration cards within a day and new cards within a week.

Rural hospital

The subjects of upgrading the Lalgarh public health centre (PHC) into a 35-bed rural hospital and building a 10-bed PHC at Ramgarh were also discussed.

Apart from these, decisions of re-opening of schools and anganwadis, resuming mid-day meal system, removal of felled trees under police protection, distribution of livestock and implementation of pipe water supply scheme at Ramgarh, Kantapahari and Pirakata were also taken during the meetings.
