The upcoming truncated stretch of the East-West Metro, passing below the Hooghly for 520 meters, includes an elaborate fire fighting system.
In order to test examinees on ecological balance, cleanliness and steps taken against the spread of vector-borne diseases, the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education had an unseen passage in the Madhyamik English paper, which is reproduction of a news article published in The Statesman on 17.07.23 edition.
The news article from Hooghly was on total neglect of the DVC irrigation canal passing through the heart of Champdani town. The canal, full of weeds and filth with stagnant water was an ideal breeding ground for dengue mosquitoes. The Champdani Municipality’s effort to keep the town free from dengue and other vector-borne diseases was hindered by the neglected irrigation canal.
The Champdani civic body chairman Suresh Mishra has thanked the WBBSE for upholding an environmental issue concerned with the general health problem of the people of Champdani town in the unseen section of Madhyamik English question paper.
Mr Mishra has also expressed his heartfelt thanks to The Statesman for carrying the news report concerned with the environmental and health issue.
Suresh Mishra added, hundreds of Madhyamik candidates from Chapdani town, their parents and the general public are very happy and have also expressed their thanks to the WBBSE as well as The Statesman for upholding the issue which remained neglected for years.
To know better English one should read The Statesman newspaper, goes the famous saying among the teachers and educationists is till day very much applicable, said Mr Mishra.
