If We Don’t Love The Poor, We Cannot Ensure Development: Mamata Banerjee
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is in Spain to participate in business summits and meet business leaders in preparation for the Bengal Global Business Summit.
Highlights of her speech at the summit today:
Bengal is a state which has mountains, forests, rivers and the sea. We have a skilled workforce. We have an atmosphere of harmony.
Bengal has all types of transportation. We have educated workers. The youth of today want to stand on their own feet. We request you to please visit us. See the infrastructural facilities. We are ready to provide all types of help.
A few months back, the theme of the International Kolkata Book Fair was Spain. At that time, representatives from Spain had invited me. I have not visited any foreign country in five years. So when I was invited, I decided that my next foreign visit would be to Spain.
You all come and invest in my state. Even if you do not invest immediately, let MoUs be signed.
Democracy is the basis of India’s greatness. Different political parties rule different states. There is unity in diversity. I can’t say about states but at least in Bengal we equally respect every religion and group. If We Don’t Love The Poor, We Cannot Ensure Development.
La Liga will build a football academy in Bengal. We will provide every possible help. We want to develop the standard of football in Bengal.
