Mamata to set up office in Darjeeling
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will set up her office in Darjeeling to improve administrative work in the hills.
"I have decided to set up a small office in the hills to be manned by an official from the chief minister's office (CMO)," Banerjee told reports in Kalimpong town on day two of her three-day visit to Darjeeling hills.
She said the office in Darjeeling would help in disbursing money from the Chief Minister's Relief fund to the people of the hills. "The Uttarkanya office (secretariat in north Bengal) in Siliguri is functioning well and will continue," she said.
Banerjee also announced that four hydel power units would come up in the region, while one medical college would be set up under the PPP model in Kurseong.
