Mayor, Hakim inaugurate stretch connecting bridge No. 4 with Shanti Dan
Mayor Sovan Chatterjee and state Urban development minister Firhad Hakim on Monday inaugurated a stretch of road connecting bridge number 4 with Shanti Dan. Shanti Dan, set up by Saint Mother Teresa, is a home for the destitutes.
The Sisters of Missionaries of Charity had requested CM Mamata Banerjee to construct the road. Due to unavailability of any access road, visitors to Shanti Dan, many of whom are foreigners who came to render their services, found it extremely difficult to reach the building. Banerjee had assured the Sisters that she would look into the matter. Accordingly, the road connecting the thoroughfare with bridge number 4 was laid.
