Jalpaiguri: The mini secretariat of the West Bengal government set up at Phulbari in Jalpaiguri district would be inaugurated by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on January 20.
North Bengal Development Minister Goutam Deb said the 70,000 square feet building named `Uttar Kanya` would be mini secretariat of the West Bengal government.

Finishing touches are being given to the building, he said.

The Police Commissioner said security has been beefed up in the area in view of the visit of the Chief Minister to inaugurate the building.
Police sniffer dogs and bomb disposal squad personnel are scanning the entire area, he added.
