kolkata sources stated that amid reports of Border Security Force (BSF) indulged in Community Development Programmes (CDPs) at the bordering areas West bengal chief minister mamata banerjee asked the state administration to ensure that BSF should not enter the village in the name of social service/community development events. While addressing an administrative meeting at Kaligunj in North Dinajpur, mamata said, “They (BSF) should not interfere in local issues. It is the job of the police to look into the local issues. police should stay alert here because North Dinajpur shares border with Bangladesh.”
Apparently she had raised the matter before the Union home minister and have informed the ministry about their (BSF) activities. Those who are guarding the border should not enter villages in the name of community services. They should not interfere in local issues because law and order is a state subject. She would like to tell the police officers posted in these areas to look into the matter.
She also launched a new housing scheme named as ‘Snehaloy’, under the purview of which the underprivileged families will be given Rs 1.20 lakh each from the state government to build houses. This is not for the first time when mamata has been at constant loggerheads with the nda government over BSF. Moreover mamata decided to spent the entire night in her office at the secretariat ‘Nabanna’ and refused to go home till the army left.
