MLA Diba Chandra Rankhol raised a question, "From Nepal Tilla to many such police stations' land phone numbers have been paralyzed. Although a single contact number for each police stations has been given to the public, the land phone numbers are not working and mobile phones are being used in the police stations. How will public reach to police there ?" In reply Home Minister Manik Sarkar said, "The matter is under observation and the mobile numbers will be given to the public as it's a problem of BSNL". However, Chief Minister cum Home Minister Manik Sarkar kept the issue hidden that due to the bills, BSNL has cut the land numbers of maximum police stations.

After that MLA Gopal Roy raised question, "Along with land phone problems there are other problems as the West PS and various other Police stations are left in broken condition. What about that ? When such issues will be sorted out and police stations will be mordenize?"

However, in reply , Chief Minister again said the same and mentioned 'things are under observation".

Other issues which were raised included Santanu murder case and denial of CBI's probe in it".
