What Bengal thinks today, the rest of the country thinks tomorrow: Mamata Banerjee
On this day last year, Mamata Banerjee took place as the chief minister of Bengal for a third consecutive term. Today, on the occasion, she addressed a party meeting at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.
Highlights of her speech:
The Lakshmir Bhandar scheme has been a huge success, with over five lakh people benefitting. The scheme was extended to 20 lakh more mothers and sisters today.
Things have improved hugely compared to the 34-year period of the Left Front rule. Many people were killed and their bodies buried in unknown graves. Earlier, complaints were not undertaken at police stations. Now prompt action is the norm.
Bengal is much safer than the other states. Today in UP if girls go to get justice, victims are made the accused. But here we don’t do that. I don’t even leave my own boys & girls (party workers) if they’re guilty. But there are some who keep circulating fake videos.
You have to do social work to do politics. Today I once again take oath before my mothers and sisters that until I leave, I will work for Bengal. Bengal will show the path to India.
There is no use in talking against me, of misleading and hatching a conspiracy.
I don’t care what others say about me. I care about democracy for my people. Those who celebrate Durga Puja also celebrate Eid. We celebrate all festivals together.
