    Jayanta: Hasnabad is a village? Anyway, there is obvious importance. Please contact me if any help needed, ping me in talk page. I think, every discussion should be on-wiki. Someone should start policy discussion on Wikipedia.

    Rajeeb: What is the rule of deletion?

    Jayanta: The community decided to delete the article, that doesnt mean the article cant be written.

    Rajeeb: If majority of article is contributed by many other efitors, shall it be deleted?

    Jayanta: It doesnt matter, if you have to pass according to the policy

    Jayanta: I and Tarun was searching on libraries in Kolkata and Howrah Bantra Library. What is the status of articles of all metro in bnwp?

    Shuvendu: Line 1 is completed and Line 2 is completed, others are not done.

    Jayanta: As a community, we should focus on West Bengal topics first.

    Tarun: I cant find info about vote distribution in Vidhan Sabha constituencies

    Jayanta: Sure, there is information about that. I will help with that.

    Tarun: I worked on census town and CD blocks, noticed that no articles are there for stations, need help with templates.

    Jayanta: I can help in importing that.

    Jayanta: We decided that, we can create articles minimum CD blocks, we can create articles on villages, only if there is any importance. In enwp, every village is notable.
