Preparation for Sept 14 Singur programme on in full swing
The state government has been working on the land survey work on a war footing following the order of the Chief Minister, who before undertaking her Europe tour had instructed the senior ministers to visit the place to inspect the progress in work.
During her absence, the senior ministers like Subrata Mukherjee, Partha Chatterjee, Firhad Hakim, Purnendu Basu and Moloy Ghatak had visited the spot and inspected the progress of land survey.
The senior ministers had also reviewed the arrangements for the victory day celebration on
September 14 when the Chief Minister is scheduled to take part in rally in Singur.
It may be mentioned here that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will hold a high level meeting with
the senior ministers and the officials of the government at Nabanna to take a stock of the progress in the work.
The Block Development Office (BDO) office in Singur functioned normally on Sunday as the senior members of the famers’ family were brought to the BDO for paper works on the cars that the state government has arranged for.
State municipal affairs minister Firhad Hakim on Saturday said that cars would be arranged to bring the elderly people from their villages. The local district administration used mics at 5 mouzas in Singur requesting the people to submit the documents to the BDO office within Tuesday.
It was learnt from the sources that around 400 acre of land has been ready for being handed over to
the farmers. The state government is targeting to make 650 acre of land cultivable before September 14. The Chief Minister had mentioned that the state government would be working on a war footing
to implement the order of the Supreme Court.
She will examine the situation on Monday. The Chief Minister would hand over cheques to 15 persons on that day. She would also hold an administrative meeting at Singur. It may be mentioned that rain
had slightly hampered the progress of work as there were venomous snakes in the area.
