The delegation was warmly received in Karbook, their first destination, where people from 22 village committees from Karbook RD block and 8 village committees from Shilacherri RD block had come to give an idea of the tremendous crisis facing them under the present government. On the next lap the delegation reached Dalakbari under Amarpur RD block where also people from 15 village committees had come to brief the delegation about their pitiable plight under the misrule of the incumbent BJP government. They had come, braving inclement weather. Finally the delegation visited Hirapur under Udaipur subdivision and spoke to people from two village committees.

The delegation led by Manik Sarkar assured them that they will raise these issues at the state level and prevail upon the government to provide relief to the people.
