1000 days at a glance: Restoring law and order in the State
West Bengal has been infamous for political clashes and Maoist violence in that past. The State also faced several separatist movements in various parts, specially North Bengal.
The All India Trinamool Congress led Government, under the guidance of Ms. Mamata Banerjee, has been successful in bringing down the political violence in the State.
West Bengal is now the model state for countering Maoist violence. Peace prevails in Darjeeling. New commissionarates, courts and police stations have been formed to boost the infrastructure.
