Nov. 23: Siliguri Jalpaiguri Development Authority chief Rudranath Bhattacharya today said the Jalpaiguri municipality chairman had written to the authority to instal trident lights across town.
Civic chief Mohan Bose had said that it was not possible for the municipality to pay the power bills of the lamps.
“We fail to understand why the municipality chairman has come up with such baseless comments. He had sent a letter to us on July 17 requesting us to install the trident lights,” Bhattacharya said today.
Pinaki Sengupta, the vice-chairman of the municipality, however, said: “We don’t have information about any letter.” Bose could not be contacted.
