Alipurduar Bhavan in Salt Lake
There is a Jalpaiguri Bhavan at Salt Lake where residents of the district can get accommodation when in Kolkata for health, education or other reasons. It is owned by the Jalpaiguri Zilla Parishad. In course of the district review meeting at Alipurduar yesterday, where I was present too, Sabhadipati Alipuduar Zilla Parishad raised the issue that upon bifurcation of Jalpaiguri district, two floors of the Bhavan should normally be given over to Alipurdur district. Hon;ble CM announced that a plot of land more or less equivalent to the one owned by JZP (4.5 kattahs) may be allotted at Salt Lake to AZP. I spoke to Special Secretary UD Gopal Ghosh after the meeting and am told that a plot has already been identified.
