ICDS workers gherao Bengal minister`s car
Nadia (WB): ICDS workers gheraoed the cars of public health engineering minister Pundarikaksha Saha and district officials on Thursday to protest against irregular remuneration and misbehaviour by some officials.
The incident happened when Saha and Additional District Magistrate (Land and Land Reform) Nadia Debasish Sarkar went to attend a government programme of `patta` distribution at the Haringhata BDO office.
SDO Kalyani, Saibal Chakraborty rushed the spot to persuade the group of 30 women to end their blockade. He assured them of looking into their complaints at the earliest.
Saha said, "I am not aware of the issue. The car of the ADM was before mine and they tried to say something to him. It was not gherao in true sense."
