Malda panchayat sets aside fund for child protection

At a time when gram panchayat members are often in news for graft or political clashes, here is one administrative body that has taken up a cause for the future. It has also turned out to be a point where political differences have melted and consensus has been reached in no time.The Muchia gram panchayat in Malda has agreed to set aside a fund for child protection, a moved welcomed by the District Child Protection Unit.
The Muchia gram panchayat was the first to respond to the child protection committee's appeal for a separate fund for child welfare. In meeting on Friday , where the decision on annual schemes are taken, Muchia pancahyat pradhan Shyamal Mandal declared, "We have decided to allot Rs 50,000 for the protection of the child. This will be placed in the budget and we hope, it will be passed." Mandal, who belongs to the BJP , claimed that he received full support from the Trinamool as well as CPM members. Rajkumar Mishra, a member of District Child Protection Unit, who was present at the meeting, described the gesture as "historic" and that it would pave the way for child protection in other areas as well.
Since the inception of the Integrated Child Protection Scheme in the state in 2013, different committees have been set up at the village samsad levels. Run by NGOs, the 15member child protection committee, including members of Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS), panchayat and self-help groups and at least two children below 18 years, looks after the protection of kids. While education for all kids is top on its agenda, the committee also keeps an eye out against child labour and child marriage.Ensuring health and hygiene for kids is another field.

Bengal to get more power from Teesta

Bengal is set to get more power as the NHPC will commission a portion of the Teesta Low Dam Project IV, a 160MW hydro-electrical venture, at Kalijhora in Darjeeling district next month.

"There are four units at TLDP-IV in Kalijhora where around 160 MW power would be generated. We are set to commission two units of the project next month. The remaining two units will be commissioned by July. The project had started in 2007 with an estimated cost of Rs 1,061 crore. However, because of a number of reasons like natural disasters and political problems, the construction had slowed down between 2007 and 2012," S.R. Roy, the executive director of the NHPC in Siliguri and the head of TLDP-IV project, told the media here yesterday evening.

The official said the entire power generated at TLDP-IV - around 720 million units in a year - would be sold by the NHPC to Bengal as agreed upon in a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two parties.

With the delay in construction, the cost has escalated to over Rs 2,000 crore.

"We have invested around Rs 1,900 crore so far. Once the project is commissioned in a full-fledged manner, the total cost would be around Rs 2,193 crore," said an NHPC source.

According to sources, 11 families need to be shifted from Kalijhora. "They will be provided with appropriate compensation. We had offered them a plot near Rambhi (20km from Kalijhora). But they wanted to move to some other location. Necessary arrangements would be made in consultation with the district administration," said an NHPC official.

Kalijhora is 20km from Siliguri.

The NHPC runs around 20 hydro-projects in the country, most of which are in the northern parts. The total capacity of all these projects is over 6,500 MW, sources said.

Fed up, a sand storm rages

About 100 villagers in Burdwan yesterday clashed with an alleged sand mafia gang near the Damodar, fed up with the district administration's inaction in curbing illegal sand mining that has caused parts of villages to cave in.

On the bank of the Damodar in Kanakpur, illegal sand mining has been going on for nearly five years in violation of rules, residents said. Rules prohibit any mining within 200 metres of a river but the site where sand is being dug out and lifted in Kanakpur, in Jamalpur block, is barely 20 metres from the Damodar.

The elaborate mining operation involving hundreds of sand pilferers, boats and machinery such as generators and sifters begs a question about the administration's role.

Last monsoon, the land caved in in patches in several villages along the Damodar's bank in Burdwan.

Shyamapada Dey of Shambhupur village, which is about 500 metres from the Damodar, said: "Several houses in my village are in danger. There are cracks in the walls of buildings. Some trees have fallen because of the soil is loose."

When this paper spoke to some sand traders, one of them said lifting sand was also a kind of " shilpo" or industry. "We have been in this sand business and have employed around 500 people," sand trader Lalan Miyan said.

He smiled and added: " Etao tho ekta shilpo (this too is a kind of industry).

Sea of poppies, hotbed of violence

A fortnight after the Kaliachak violence where the police station was vandalised and torched on January 3, cops are convinced the planned attack was instigated by smugglers and illegal traders who thrive in the lawlessness at Kaliachak.
While smuggling of fake currency and arms has been a big racket for years, the explosion in poppy cultivation has added to the illegal activities that abound in this place bordering Bangladesh.
Grown by local farmers under the watchful eyes of the 'mafia', the poppy fields produce tonnes of opium.
For Class VI student Ibrahim of Sahbajpur, carrying a container of concentrated opium resin known as atha (glue) in local parlance across the border fetches Rs 100, a princely sum for people residing in these border lands. Children like Ibrahim and women are used as carriers to smuggle opium across the border. Crossing over to Bangladesh in the morning and returning before sunset is a common practice.
Finer products like heroin are carried back from there through Lalgola and Domkal. Around 750-800 gm of resin is required to produce 100 gm of heroin. The riches from the opium trade has reduced poverty.
Ismail Sheikh of Golapgunj, a daily labourer till recently, has come into wealth and built a pucca house and bought a motorcycle. How? He took 1 bigha land on contract for a year and sowed poppy. "Last October, we all took seeds of mustard or wheat but Ismail went for poppy. And we heard that he garnered over Rs 50,000 from the plot," said his neighbour Alim.
Ismail's isn't the only rags to riches story. Thousands of farmers in Malda, Nadia and Murshidabad have found the short cut to success within three-four months, dumping the uncertainty over ravi crop to welcome offers from some 'foreigners'.

The bomb factory explores yet again

TMC leader's brothers die as stocked bombs explode

Two persons, both brothers of a Trinamool Congress gram panchayat member, died in an explosion inside a house in Amodpur late on Thursday evening. The explosion was so strong that the house, a pucca structure on nearly 400 sq ft area, was completely flattened.
Though Jabir Hossain, the gram panchayat leader and the elder brother of the deceased, claimed criminals had hurled bombs, police suspect explosives went off while being moved or a crude bomb exploded while it was being made. The deceased have been identified as Sheikh Tarik Hossain (28) and Hafijul Sheikh (27). It is suspected that some others were also injured in the explosion but they were shifted to hospitals elsewhere to evade questioning by the police.

Well another Mayawati indeed

' Mati' house for Ma Mati Manush CM



A faux mud-house, built to the chief minister's taste and fitted luxuriously within, was the one high point of Mati Utsav that concluded on Monday in Burdwan.

An official said the two-storey building, called "my house" by Mamata Banerjee, would not cost less than Rs 35 lakh. Another official who did not wish to be named said Rs 1 crore was spent on the house.

Mati Utsav, which started on January 19, did not yield a rich crop. Farmers did not come in droves to the fair ground at the Kalna Agriculture Farm. The venue, called Mati Tirtha, had around 25 stalls on agriculture as well as food. Clay models depicted various government projects such as the Anganwadi scheme.

Farmer House is made of cement and painted outside to look like a mud-house. Straw covers the verandah and corrugated sheets the roof, but the inside of the house is unlike other mud-houses.

The "cottage" has a hall on the ground floor. The first floor has two rooms - a master bedroom and a "waiting" room. All rooms have provisions for ACs, though not fitted yet. The building has been provided an electricity connection already and has four bathrooms.

Fitting rural surroundings have been created, not without a touch of aesthetics. A tulsi mandir adorns the entrance. Fifty-two betel nut trees and five coconut trees surround the house. The floor at the entrance is decorated with alpana of footprints of the goddess Lakshmi, traditional Bengali decoration for houses. A birdhouse has been set up on the side of the staircase. Flower plants and vegetable patches with tomato, chilli and brinjal plants add to the beautification.

Protected by security personnel, the house does not allow access to visitors

"The cottage has been designed and decorated following the directions of Madam. The interiors have been done up according to her wish, with cushions, cane furniture and a swing. Arrangements have been made for drawing and painting equipment. A large desk has been installed in her room, where she will write poems, stories and other things."

An assistant engineer of the agriculture marketing board, Prithviraj Ghosh, said: "All wooden furniture inside the cottage and the windows and doors have been made of teak wood from Siliguri. According to the chief minister's wish, we have designed the doors and windows based on old-world motifs. The cane swing has been put up in the verandah as she wanted it. Perhaps she will spend her evenings relaxing there."

City lights add a spark to village

Villagers in Joyrampur have found a reason to rejoice - the trident street lights that had changed the cityscape two years ago are now jazzing up Khanakul gram panchayat. And the man to thank is KMC deputy mayor Iqbal Ahmed, who is the local MLA.
A visit to the locality on Thursday revealed brand new trident lights dotting both sides of Joyrampur, in the backdrop of paddy fields. They have also been set up in front of a school and a market. The only difference with Kolkata is that here a set has been bought for Rs 7000, while a set in Kolkata two years ago had cost the KMC Rs 12,000.
Joyrampur resident Naimul Haque is happy that this is the first panchayat area in Bengal which has such decorative lights.

Ahmed announced that Khanakul is going to set several more records within six months, including becoming the state's first panchayat area to have an electric crematoria. The work for installation of the electric crematoria is underway and it will be dedicated to three panchayat and municipal areas.

World Bank may approve 3,000 crore for villages

World Bank has approved disbursal of another tranche of Rs 3,000 crore towards panchayati raj development schemes in West Bengal.
The state is yet to receive the central government's support for the project despite it has been showcased by World Bank in several states.
"They have in-principle approved extending the project to 1,000 more panchayats. We expect that they will release the amount soon," said state Panchayat Minister Subrata Mukherjee. It will be in addition to the total of $ 200 million from the World Bank earlier.

These kind of basic development initiatives are needed in every state. Rural areas in most states of our country (including so called developed states) face lot of problem regarding water. If a basic thing like water ( forget about safe water) cannot be provided to a people of a state, then how can it claim to be developed.

Fish farming to stop coal pilfering

Quote:
The Bengal fisheries department and Eastern Coalfields Ltd have decided to jointly start pisciculture in abandoned open-cast mines in Asansol with the aim of creating employment opportunities and checking pilfering of coal by jobless youths.

Senior fisheries department officials and the ECL management held three meetings in Asansol between July 8 and 10 and are set to sign a memorandum before Durga Puja.

"The ECL has agreed to allow us to start fishing projects in their abandoned open-cast mines, where plenty of water reserves are available. They will give us money under their corporate social responsibility scheme and we will provide fingerlings, feeds and medicines. We will also impart free training in fishing to local unemployed youths. It will create employment opportunities in the area," said Chowdhury Mozammel Haque, the Burdwan district fisheries officer.

Initially, the ECL and the fisheries department have identified five abandoned mines in Asansol's Salanpur and Barabani blocks to start a pilot project before the Pujas. Altogether, 78 abandoned mines in Asansol's coal belt have water reserves - accumulated rainwater and underground water.

When in power, the Left had come up with the idea of using the abandoned mines for fish cultivation, but the plan did not take off.

Recently, labour minister and Asansol North MLA Malay Ghatak took up the matter with the fisheries department and the ECL.

"We will be able to give employment to 6,000 to 7,000 people once the project starts in full swing. It will also stop local unemployed youths from stealing coal," Ghatak said.

According to fisheries department officials, water is available over a 260-hectare surface area in the 78 mines and 7,800 tonnes of fish can be farmed a year there.

In the last fiscal, Burdwan had produced 1.28 lakh tonnes of fish, less than the district's demand of around 1.4 lakh tonnes, a fisheries official said.

Two sets of self-help groups of unemployed youths will be formed by the fisheries department with the help of panchayats - one for fish cultivation and another for transporting fish to the markets.

"We have a shortage of big fish such as rohu and katla, which are regularly in demand in local markets. The gap between demand and supply can be reduced if the project succeeds," said Haque, the district fisheries officer.

Lake to get a face-lift

The iconic Bairagidhighi, a water body on whose banks the Madan Mohan Temple is located in Cooch Behar, will be given a new look as part of a beautification drive.

The temple that houses the family deities of the erstwhile princes of Cooch Behar is among popular pilgrimage spots in north Bengal. Thousands of devotees of Madan Mohan (Lord Krishna) flock to the temple and take a holy bath in the waters of Bairagidhi.

"The sentiments of the people of Cooch Behar are closely linked to the temple. Tourists from around the world and from parts of India come to the temple. In order to make the place more attractive for visitors, we are beautifying the 3.75-acre Bairagidighi. The north Bengal development department has sanctioned Rs 3 crore and the state tourism department Rs 2 crore for the purpose," said north Bengal development minister Rabindranath Ghosh.

He said work on a water fountain had started. "The fountain is being built in the middle of the lake. Visitors will be able to see images of Madan Mohan rising from the fountain," Ghosh said.

The scientists will be engaged to carry out research works on “tissue culture”. The main purpose of the new project was to increase the productivity in various sectors by adopting what would be the best techniques for them to grow.

It may be mentioned here that the Biotechnology department has been carrying out research so that the vegetables and fruits are free from chemical hazards.

It has been seen that the vegetables and fruits that are supplied into various markets in the city are often found to be unhealthy, but it also affects human health as various chemical fertilisers, rich in toxic substances is often administered on the plants to augment the productivity.

The department will also carry out research on how to increase the productivity of cattle.
