Casual approach of Central team irks residents of cyclone hit areas
| Saturday | 16th November, 2019
Kolkata: Strong resentment was visible among the people of both South and North 24-Parganas who have been affected by cyclone Bulbul, over the "casual approach" of the Central team visiting the areas on Friday afternoon.
The nine-member Central team, divided into two groups, made an aerial survey of Sandeshkhali and Hingalgunj in North 24-Parganas, while they visited Basirhat and Hasnabad by road.
The team is supposed to assess the damage caused by the cyclonic storm Bulbul that had hit Sagar Island last Saturday.
I had thought that the Central team would visit our village," said Ibrahim Molla of Sujapur village.
The team which visited Namkhana, Frasergunj and parts of Patharpratima, did not visit Mousuni Island, Jharkhali and Sagar Island, which have been badly hit by Bulbul.
