Chief minister Mamata Banerjee wants to directly receive complaints from industrialists and find a solution, at a time when law and order problems and industrial disputes are recurring in the state.

Mamata called on industrialists to email her directly in case of a problem and assured her personal intervention.

Sources believe she is aware of the rising problems of law and order and industrial disputes, which takes a long time by the industry department for redressing.

“I tell you that I am there to help you in case of any problem or if you have any proposal. I have opened an email account. Please take my email id and mail me directly anytime. I will personally do the needful to solve the problem,” Mamata said during her inauguration speech of Bengal Leads II in Haldia.

“Here with me are ministers of industry, labour and finance departments. You all are welcome to contact them directly in case of any problem,” said the chief minister.

Sources in the CMO said there are dedicated personnel to check the chief minister official mail round the clock. These are then referred to the chief minister personally for her attention. She will then issue necessary orders to departments to solve the dispute or problem faced by the industrialist.

Of late the chief minister who is on a drive to get investment for the state is not happy with the way the industry department handled cases of law and order and disputes.

Interestingly in November after a month-long impasse and complaints of violence, cargohandling firm Haldia Bulk Terminal decided to pull out of West Bengal. Fingers were pointed at Trinamool leader and MP Suvendu Adhikari for arm-twisting the officers.

Some other industry bosses and factory owners had also lodged complaint s with the police after alleging threats from local Trinamool-backed hoodlums. Such disputes and law and order problems earned a bad name for Bengal, which the chief minister aims to change.
