Health problems in dubrajpur
Simlapal, Bankura District   said on
There is a hospital named Hatibari new P H C but no doctor is staying here. Becaus, hospital has no boundary wall. There is want of security. The main road for going to dist. town is 10 km away from Dubrajpur and the condition of the road is very very bad. This dubrajpur vill is in jangl mahal. But the development work of the vill. is neglected. During this era of our beloved party TMC no district level leader came here and not even think of the vll. I am sorry to say that I am the president of Dubrajpur anchal TMC committee.

I am sudip chatterjee from this village,kanuri which is located under saltor block of bankura dist.The whole things is nt well. There is no any good communication.. Only two bus daily run on this route. Bt the roads are not well.we hava one subhealth centre but there is no available medicine to get at the right time. The culture,education in our village are good.. We have two big festivals,one Durga puja and the other Shib Gajon. Agriculture only depends on rainy season.there is no any alternative way. So that the still problems are solved as soon as possible..especially communication. Thanking you.

Simlapal, Bankura District   said on
My father was born here but left at the age of 11 to Jamshedpur, still have several pleasant unforgettable childhood memories as well as bitter experience because of heartless behavior from elders of the family. I have visited several times but never got inspiration to stay for more than one night. we have been uprooted and do not have our own house there except small piece of land. some time I do feel our pity situation even though has been a member of once Zamindar/ land lord family. Apart from all these, I still have very good memories of taking bath at Ghagar ghat of Shilabati river with my brother, Buka whom I have loved a lot. I donot have any prejudice to declare the people of this village and everything very good. I have met different kind of people here. Rajivda and Baudi are nice, caring people. most of the others are very opportunistic and not ready to help each others. Sorry for this comment.
