After attending the condolence meet at Kamduni on Sunday, state Food Supply Minister Jyotipriya Mullick said politics might hamper the development work which had already been started here.
Mullick urged the villagers at Kamduni to stay away from politics and assured them that development will take place at the village. Without mentioning the name of BJP, Mullick said rally would not do any good to the Kamduni villagers. It was the development the villagers were looking for.
“We don’t want rally from Kamduni to Kakdwip. We want development. The present government has taken an elaborate scheme to develop Kamduni and other adjoining villages. Around 22 more villages have been identified where various developmental projects would be undertaken. The tendering process has already been initiated for this,” Mullick said.
Mullick on Sunday has given a detail account of the projects that were being taken up. The roads were constructed at Kamduni at the cost of Rs 8 lakh. Around 20 vapor lamps have also been erected at the cost of Rs 5 lakh.
The North 24-Parganas Zilla Parishad has spent Rs 5 lakh for upgrading Kamduni School. Two arsenic free water projects have come up at the cost of Rs 5 lakh.
He also said that victim’s family has got justice. Development has been taking place but some people were trying to politicise the whole issue. The minister urged people not to politicise the issue when the family members of the victim have been given justice.
The minister went to the village to attend condolence meet organised by the villagers. It may be mentioned that the victim was brutally raped and murdered here in the village 2 years and eight months ago.
Mullick said the police should allow everyone to Kamduni to pay respect to the victim.
“I come on 7th of every month to pay my homage and lay candles at a distance,” he said, adding that no one should try to get political mileage of such an incident.
Meanwhile, Mousumi Koyal and Tumpa Koyal had handed over a paper containing list of some works for the village to the minister.
In this regard Mullick said that everybody has right to approach a minister.
“After going through the paper that they have given to me today, I found that more than whatever development works they have mentioned have taken place in Kamduni and the work of the remaining work has already started,” he said.
