Bangla CM releases handbook citing state’s achievements in eight years
Bangla Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee released a handbook on October 16, 2019. The book highlights the achievements of the State Government over the last eight years. The handbook has been named ‘Two Zero Eleven – Two Zero Nineteen’.
The book showcases how the economy of Bangla has improved, despite the slump in the national economy. From the 2.5 fold increase in GSDP to the 11 fold rise in capital expenditure, for physical infrastructure creation, or the 3.9 times decrease in revenue deficit – the handbook highlights Bangla’s performance in every sphere.
It may be mentioned, in the last eight years, the planned expenditure of Bangla has increased six fold, agriculture budget has increased by nine times, social sector spending has increased by four times, school education budget by nine times, higher education budget by six times.
Since assuming office in 2011, Mamata Banerjee has been working tirelessly to put Bangla on the course of development. The data presented in this handbook is testimony to the fact that the State is on the fast-track of development now.
