I want the Hills to prosper: Mamata Banerjee in Kurseong
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today inaugurated the sixth edition of Uttar Banga Utsab. The inaugural ceremony was held at Kurseong.
The CM inaugurated the 100-bedded ESI Hospital at Siliguri, HDU at Kurseong sub-divisional hospital, SNCU at Darjeeling hospital, and the newly-renovated blood bank at Siliguri District Hospital. The CM also launched the tiger safari at Bengal Safari Park in north Bengal.
Speaking on the occasion, she said: “We want Hills to prosper. We want peace. Violence will bear no fruit. GTA Board and local municipalities are not run by us or else we could have done much more work for the people.”
She added, “We have already formed 12 development boards in the Hills. Three more will be set up. I will come back to the Hills again. I want my brothers and sisters in the Hills to be happy.”
On Sunday evening, she will reach Darjeeling. Like all the previous years, she will be attending the programme of Netaji Jayanti at Mall in Darjeeling on January 23. Thousands of people will be gathering at the programme.
She will also be holding the administrative review meeting for the district on January 24 where she will take a stock of the progress of the development works undertaken by the state government. She will return to Kolkata on January 25.
