Interacting with the officials at an administrative review meeting held in Krishnagar Rabindra Bhawan, Miss Banerjee reminded that law and order is a state subject and said, “You have to see that the BSF does not get into villages without your permission and get involved with anything. The BSF will do their work and you will do yours. I will not let the common people be tortured.”

In the meeting, she also asked police officers to increase ‘naka checking’ and keep extra vigils.

“I will ask the ICs (inspectors-in-charge) to increase their mobility and step up naka checking. You have borders with Bangladesh starting from Karimpur. You also have to keep an eye on that,” Miss Banerjee instructed.

While talking with the police officials, Miss Banerjee also announced that an all-women police patrolling team will be formed in municipal areas in each district of the state.

“We will introduce a woman battalion in each municipal area in line with the Winners of Kolkata Police. At least 10 policewomen will patrol the areas on bikes or scooters. I have already asked the DG to work on it,” she said.

Aiming to prevent crimes like molestation and eve-teasing and make public places safer for women, Kolkata Police in July 2018 launched a special all-women patrolling team called “The Winners”.

Responding to this announcement, the Nadia district magistrate responded that such women police teams would start functioning in Nadia district’s municipal towns of Ranaghat, Kalyani and Krishnagar within the next 10 days.

Prior to this interaction with the police officials, Miss Banerjee discussed about the forthcoming development projects that can create employment. “Our goal is now to increase employment. There are many projects going on now. People are getting services at their doors. But, we will have to increase employment through new projects,” she said.

Miss Banerjee asked the district administration to set up industrial park at each assembly constituency. She also asked the Nadia district Chamber of Commerce to identify 5 acre land across the district where the state government can set up such industrial park. Earlier for setting up an industrial park, 15 acres of land were required. But, the state government has now reduced the minimum land requirement parameter and has fixed 5 acre land for setting up an industrial park, Miss Banerjee said.

She also asked the Nadia district magistrate Shashank Sethi to take self-initiative to increase employment by implementing various innovative plans.

The chief secretary then informed Miss Banerjee that state government is all set to launch four projects with an investment of Rs 212 crore in Nadia within the next three years by which 20 lakh employments would be generated.

This apart, the state government is taking initiative to revive the Nadia Kishan Milk Union which was once a big milk union in the district. Around 10000 dairy farmers are involved with this union and the state government is planning to revive it with more big way, the chief secretary informed adding that it would be finally taken under ‘Bangla Dairy’ brand.

Stating that all pending municipal elections will be held within two months, Miss Banerjee took stock of the situations of all municipalities in the district.

She suddenly raised finger at the factional quarrel within the party leaders in Krishnagar and gave a strong message to Mahua Moitra who was then on the stage. “Mahua, I want to send a clear message here. There is no need to look for or against anyone. This politics can last for a day but not forever. I have heard everything. No person can hold any post for long period. The party will decide who will hold the post. So, there should be no discontentment.”

She then asked the Nadia North district Trinamul Congress president Jayanta Saha to narrate the incident. As soon as Saha started saying that there was conspiracy to sabotage and malign him, Miss Banerjee said, “I know everything. I have received reports from ADG (Law and Order) and CID. Everything was concocted and arranged. It was then given to media. So, everyone has to work together. When election will come, party will decide the candidates. There should not be any difference of opinion.”  

Mamata referred to protest rally by a group of women and posters being put up accusing a faction of the TMC leadership headed by Jayanta Saha of corruption. The protesters alleged that Saha’s team had threatened them to allow his youths to construct the houses under the centrally sponsored housing scheme. Hinting at an inside job, Miss Banerjee said a police investigation had revealed that the allegations were fake.

“It is not the actual incident. It was curated and planted to the media. I have cross checked it,” she said. Her stern message comes ahead of impending civic polls in the state.
