West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee said the small and medium upcoming scale industrial hubs in Kolkata’s adjacent district Howrah will create employment for the people living there. It is expected to provide employment to more than five lakh people. She said this on Tuesday in an administrative meeting which was held in Howrah. This was the first meeting held in this district after she came to power for the second time only last month. It will be set up in a region called as Belur in Howrah. She said that a multi speciality hospital will also be soon set up in Howrah.
She said, “Today we had held our 128 administrative meeting in Howrah district. As you all know an IT HUB is coming up in Rajarhat and a small and medium scale industrial hub is coming up in Howrah district. In coordination with Belur Shilpo Tirtha and Yokohama city, this small scale and medium scale industry will come up and it will generate employment for five lakh people.”
She further added, “The traffic system of Howrah will be revamped. The Monglahat area of Howrah, will also be revamped. The universal electrification of this district will be over by next one or two months.”
She seems to be very happy with the amount of work done in the district. On this happy note, she said, “The district has done 100 per cent work when it comes to Kanyashree and MNREGA schemes. Last year, we had clocked 44 days in the 100-days work scheme. We aim for 100 days this time. No fund should be left unutilised. I will not tolerate any hurdles in way of developmental works.”
She is also happy with the work done in the Howrah Zila Parishads and Howrah Municipal Corporation. Speaking about the kind of work done in Howrah to prevent situations like that of flood, she said, “Work is being done along six km stretch in the embankments. Work has already started in Udaynarayanpur area and Uluberia area.”
The TMC leaders present at the meeting said, “Mamata Banerjee has given clear instructions that all government agencies has to work together. She has lauded the performance of this district. She has also asked to increase the number of work days under the 100 days’ work scheme.”
