Discussions on various development issues will also take place in the meeting. According to the sources, the Chief Minister may also take a stock of the condition of various ongoing projects in the district. This meeting is important in many ways. With the Assembly election scheduled to take place next year, Banerjee may discuss the plans on how to take preparation, what would be her party’s strategy in the forthcoming election. Strategically, North 24-Parganas is an important district because of its proximity to the city. There are four MP seats in the district.
A bunch of development works which had been initiated in the district may be a top agenda of the discussion, besides the political and organisational discussions. The Chief Minister, being the head of her party, may ask party MPs and MLA’s about the latest condition of those projects that were started in the district after the Trinamool Congress came to power. Development has always been a top priority of the agenda ever since Banrerjee became the Chief Minister.
She had convened a number of administrative meetings in the district with all the district officers in last few years so that various ongoing projects could be finished earlier. Banerjee had taken many steps to revamp the jute industry of North 24-Parganas. A committee comprising of group of ministers was formed to look into the jute industry in Barrackpore. The Public Works Department had taken up construction of road in various places of the district with a budget of Rs 800 crore.
Few months ago, Banerjee held a meeting at Madhyamgram where she asked the administrative officers to expedite the undergoing projects.
