PCC chief Somen Mitra has demanded setting up of an enquiry commission to investigate the causes of the subsidence in and around B B Ganguly Street following tunneling work of East West Metro Railway route. The area in which houses are developing cracks almost daily, triggering the evacauation of the residents, is part of erstwhile Sealdah Assembly segment from which Mitra was elected seven times. The demand for the enquiry commission will be the spearhead of a joint agitairon by the Congress and Left Front against the Trinamul Congress government.
The plan of action against the state government will be chalked out at a meeting scheduled to be held at the R R Avenue on 12 September. The 12 September rally precedes the plan of joint movement with the front with whom an electoral alliance did not materialise in the parliamentary election. The agenda of this meeting will be firing salvoes both at the Trinamul state government and BJP dispensation at the Centre, it was learnt. Corruption in issuance of ration cards and a hike in CESC tariff rates will be the issues on which the PCC leadership is aiming to go at the Trinamul government hammer and tongs.
Job cuts, reducing bank and post office deposit interests will be the issues to lambast the Union government. The talks with the Left Front will be aimed at taking the understanding among the partes the booth level following which the agitation will be carried out in the disricts, it was learnt.
