Islampur Bypass Issue: Farmers Disrupt Construction Work In Balancha
In the presence of former Minister Abdul Karim Chowdhary, the farmers erected a bamboo barricade and tried to disrupt the construction work of the bypass in Islampur’s Balancha today.
Abdul Karim Chowdhary has demanded the state’s Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee, to intervene in the matter. However, he said that he did not instruct the farmers to build the bamboo barricade and that the farmers did it to protect their own land as the administration is trying to force this construction to success.
An official of the Islampur Sub-Division named Thendup Sherpa said that they had come to work, but had to return back without doing it because of the protesting men and women.
