Siliguri, 30th September: Ashok Bhattacharya, Chairman of the BoA at SMC, did not attend CM’s administrative review meeting in Uttar Kanya despite being invited. It is to be noted that the Chief Minister held an administrative meeting with the officials of three districts today.
Bhattacharya said that he did not attend the meeting as administrative meetings have become more like a political arena. He alleged that despite sending a letter to the CM to discuss various development works in Siliguri, no initiatives were taken.
On the other hand, Tapash Sarkar, the president of the Sub-Divisional Council, expressed displeasure over not being invited to Uttar Kanya for the meeting while other officials of the council and the opposition leader were invited.
Sarkar stated that despite being the president of the council for the past five years, he was not invited to the meeting.
