The Centre’s announcement on Monday to turn the Petuaghat Fishing Harbourin East Midnapore into a hub of economic activity promises fresh economic rival in this coastal district.

Earlier, chief minister Mamata Banerjee had spoken of similar measures to be taken by the state government near the proposed Tajpur Deep Sea port around 40-km from the harbour. The Union minister, Nirmala Sitharaman, said she was proposing “substantial investments in the development of modern fishing harbours and fish landing centres” in five fishing harbours, including Petuaghat. Locals said there should be markets for fishermen to sell their produce.
