New Majerhat bridge will come up: Mamata
KOLKATA: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday declared that collapsed Majerhat Bridge would be completely dismantled and a modern bridge would be built in its place within a year’s time. She said the chief secretary would make a cost assessment of the new bridge. “The report by the Chief Secretary states that the PWD cannot deny its responsibility in the catastrophe. The department’s negligence cannot be ruled out,” the CM said about the findings.
