A large number of migrant labourers from Malda district have queued up in front of the collectorate building here for the last five days seeking work for 200 days a year in view of chief minister Mamata Banerjee's recent assurance to them.
She had said that she did not want people of West Bengal to face any danger while working in other states.
Malda ADM (General) R Vimla said no untoward incident was reported today in front of the administrative building and applications were taken according to the normal procedure.
There was no problem in case of 200 days' work as it was a matter of the Gram Panchayat level and all applications relating to job applications would be sent through the concerned Blocks, the official said.
But in respect of financial assistance there was no government order so far, the official said.
Due to a huge gathering on Monday, a disorderly situation had arisen before the main administrative building here when the ADM (General) had to tackle the situation with the help of the police.
After the incident was brought to the notice of the District Magistrate Koushik Bhattacherjee, he said he would look into the matter.
District Panchayat and Rural development officer Sukanta Saha said two separate cells have been formed for helping the labourers and two counters have been opened for collecting applications from them.
The officer said "in case of financial assistance, we will proceed in accordance with the advise of the panchayat department and in case of the 200 days work, the district administration will forward the cases to the concerned Blocks.
