Kolkata: To ensure the smooth running of the 100 days work scheme, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee instructed officials to carry on work despite of the non-set up of a board.

The Panchayat case is pending in the Supreme Court. A board could not be constructed within the speculated time. CM Mamata presided over a meeting at the state secretariat to ensure that the working process is not hindered despite of the absence of boards in the Panchayats. The meeting was attended by ministers of different departments, president and district magistrates.

CM Mamata asked the District Magistrates to monitor every thing in the right way. She said, “There should not be any negligence in your work as a board has not been set-up yet. The 100-days-work scheme should not be stalled anywhere.”

The hearing for the Panchayat elections ended this week. The state government is awaiting the verdict next week. In the Panchayat elections, the Trinamool Congress Party won uncontested at 34% seats. The oppositions had protested against this and moved to the court. The hearing is on for past three months.

The block officials and the districts magistrates have been instructed to see that the development does not get stalled. The duties have been divided among them.

Keeping in mind the affect the Kerala floods may have on the West Bengal districts, the district magistrates have been asked to monitor and protect the areas from any ill-effects of the flood.

The CM also asked the authorities to be aware on the spread of dengue in the districts.
