New Town Forum & News (NTFN), a New Town-based NGO, plans to hold an online interactive session with the Trinamool, BJP and CPM candidates of Rajarhat-New Town constituency. As part of this, the NGO is now inviting questions from residents to highlight what they want from the candidates for their constituency area. The top questions will be screened, recorded and discussed with the candidates.
The constituency has an interesting contest on the cards with Trinamool’s Tapas Chatterjee, who has been the deputy mayor of Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation, locking horns with CPM’s Saptarshi Deb, son of former Left Front minister Gautam Deb and BJP’s Bhaskar Roy.
As the NGO started inviting questions from the residents, via WhatsApp and Facebook, some key issues highlighted by them, include having a government superspeciality hospital, a 10+2 government school, better government health infrastructure facilities like burning ghats and blood banks, a cleaner and greener New Town with more parks and playgrounds, removal of encroachments from footpaths, more tree plantation, improved transport facilities with block-to-block connection and a cleaner Bagjola canal.
Some also want loudspeakers to be banned and 24-hour medicine shop, parking space and ration shop.
