Purnendu Basu visits Singur to inspect land condition
The state agriculture department is trying to examine the nature and the condition of the land so that the farmers can have prior knowledge what kind of seed would be best for the land.
The minister on Wednesday visited all the five mouzas in Singur and inspected the quality of the soil. After his visit, Basu said that the senior officials of the department inspected various mouzas to examine the quality of the land.
This will help the farmers to know what type of seeds could be sown in a particular piece of land. A scientific study of the pieces of lands in all the five mouzas in Singur will benefit the farmers in two ways.
Firstly, the farmers will get to know the quality of the land and secondly, they would also get assistance from the agriculture department in order to improve the condition of land.
Basu had also taken a stock of the on-going land survey works. It may be mentioned that before going on a tour to Europe, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that a senior minister would visit Singur to inspect the progress of land survey work that had been started following the order of the Supreme Court.
The state government is working on a war footing to complete the land survey work in Singur. The progress of mapping and plotting works in these mouzas is satisfactory. The senior officials of various departments were putting their best efforts to complete the work as early as possible. It may be mentioned here that the Chief Minister will hold a review meeting at Singur on September 14.
“We paid a visit to all the five mouzas to inspect the condition of land. Our experts will examine the nature of the land so that the farmers do not face any inconveniences. Our Chief Minister had instructed us to take necessary steps so that people get services as early as possible. Rain had slightly affected the work but the progress of work has been satisfactory,” Basu maintained.
