Rs. 5 Crore for CM Mamata Banerjee walking Elliot Park No money for other citizen’s park

Kolkata –

Today KMC, corporation does not have any money to buy pumps to keep the streets dry.

Today KMC do not have any money to maintain the other parks forget about the beautification.

Example - KMC's own Citizen's Park
The musical fountain and decorative lights that were a hit with tourists have been switched off because the corporation cannot afford the electricity.
The civic body says it does not have fund for development projects.

Now understand how the laws are different in a democratic India for rich and poor for politicians and common citizens.

In 2004, Tata Group took the charge and transformed a garbage dump into one of the best-maintained park in the city today which is known and popular as Elliot Park

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee takes her evening walks in Elliot Park maintained by Tata Group
She takes her evening walks on the 2km jogger's track but the broken pathway bothered her

She told this to her security then security informed top officers and matter reached to the police commissioner Surajit Kar Purakayastha
Then he called a meeting of the stakeholders on July 12.

In a meeting they decided to that KMC will take over the park from Tata Group

A special task force has been set up expedite the revamp
KMC is already working on an Rs 5 crore-beautification plan to make the CM's evening walk smooth
KMC will redo the pathway,
KMC will change the landscaping and plant Mamata's favorite trees.
The civic body is keen to fence off the entire area for the sake of the Z-plus VVIP, though the ground belongs to the Army.

After this entry will be restricted to common Indian citizens

Morning walkers will have access from 5am to 7.30am.

In the afternoon, the gates will be thrown open from 1pm to 5pm, closing an hour before the CM comes for her walk.

Do you know the time when schoolchildren have time to visit Park?

Just remembered British Raj
