Mrinal Sikdar, the CPM gram panchayat winner at Kanksa in Durgapur has complained to the sub-divisional officer of Durgapur that he was made to sign forcibly on a blank sheet of paper on Saturday (August 3) by Trinamool activists who said that they would write his resignation and submit it to the block development officer.
Bardhaman district administration has seized 25 acres of land from the NGO Bikalpa who were running the Kanksa residential school where an incident of food poisoning has taken the life of a nine year old girl on 24th March. Incidentally the CPI (M) backed NGO has been running the school meant for tribals only since 2004.
Death of a class class III student of Pandit Raghunath Murmu Memorial School in Kanksa near Durgapur and 58 other students being admitted in the sub-divisional hospital in Durgapur has snowballed into a political blame game. The school is a co-d-educational residential school run by an NGO since 2004.
