Sandeep Chakravorty, Deputy High Commissioner of India and Mr. Sadhan Chandra Majumdar, Member of Parliament, Naogaon District jointly inaugurated 400 Deep Tube wells in Porsha, Sapahar & Niamatpur Upazilas of Naogaon district on May 5, 2014. Mr. Sujit Ghosh, Counsellor (Political and Information), Mr. R. Masakui, Counsellor (Economic and Projects) and Mr. Sandip Mitra (Assistant High Commissioner, Rajshahi) were also present during this occasion.
The project is supported by Government of India as part of an initiative to implement Small Development Projects to benefit the people of Bangladesh. These deep tube wells will help in reducing the difficulties faced by the people in accessing safe drinking water in the three upazilas of Naogaon.
Access to safe drinking water is one of the biggest problems in this area. Water here has high arsenic content. This Project will provide the local population access to safe drinking water.
