“The elections may be declared in March or February. But after declaration of election no work should be hampered.  There should be no mistake. The administration and the DMs have to do election-related work but development work should also continue,” Banerjee told reporters after an administrative review meeting at the Town Hall here.

Describing development as a continuous process, she said projects already sanctioned should be implemented in accordance with the rules.
