The Union Information & Broadcasting minister Mr Priyaranjan Dasmunshi during his recent stay in circuit house in Karnajora of North Dinajpur district said that this year the Congress will capture power in Dalkhola municipality with absolute majority to be held on 29 June.
“In the last few years I took up the case of boosting up ***Navodya vidyalaya ,a reck point at Dalkhola Railway station(center for unloading goods)and a flyover to avoid traffic congestion . ***Navodaya Vidaylaya has already started functioning while construction work of Dalkhola fly over and reck point are still on.”
“Apart from these, in the last five years infrastructure of different high schools in Dalkhola were developed with my MP LAD fund.On the other hand CPI(M) led Dalkhola municipality in last five years did nothing for the residents. I expect that residents will cast their votes in favour of congress this year on the basis of my work, he rued.”
It was learnt that in last municipality election in Dalkhola CPI(M) bagged 11 and Congress got 3 out of total 14 seats. In retaliation the Chairman of CPI(M) led Dalkhola municipality, Mr Himadri Mukharjee said, “On behalf of our municipality we managed the land at Teesta Colony in Dalkhola for the opening of ***Navodaya Vidyalaya.The construction work of Dalkhola flyover and reck point are proceeding very slowly.” “When Mr Dasmunshi was the Union minister of water resource department we sent some proposals to develop some water bodies in Dalkhola .But he ingnored our projects.In last few years Mr Dasmunshi spent a good amount from his MP LAD fund to develop the infrastructure of Raiganj municipality.But he did not provide any fund to Dalkhola municipality till date.So residents of Dalkhola will not listen to his words.CPI(M) will get more majority this year in Dalkhola municipality election ,”added Mr Mukherjee.

MLA Deepa Das Munshi
The Goalpokhar MLA Mrs Deepa Das Munshi today lashed out at the CPI-M and its ally RSP holding the organisations and the Left Front in general responsible for the lack of development in north Bengal. She was addressing a rally organised by the Congress for the forthcoming Balurghat civic polls in South Dinajpur district.
The Congress, which is upbeat in the region after having done well in the panchayat elections in North Dinajpur district, has stepped up its activities in South Dinajpur too and is eyeing the Balurghat Municipality.
Alleging that the RSP had done nothing to improve civic service in Balurghat despite running the board for 26 years and holding the CPI-M ruled Left Front for the backwardness of north Bengal in general, the MLA alleged that the RSP led Balurghat Municipality failed to use funds for different development schemes. She criticised the RSP run civic body’s failure to provide domestic water connection and the absence of a master plan for development, “though the Centre provided huge amounts for such benefits.”
