Bengal Govt`s report card on completing two years in office. The facts. The figures across 62 departments
As we complete two years of the state`s first true pro-people government in decades, I thank all those whose faith has been our fuel in our fight for social justice and to bring to an end 34 years of Left misrule and tyranny. In just two years we have succeeded to reverse much of the wrong doings of the previous regime that perpetuated stagnation, poor work culture and a sense of gloom.
Bengal has catapulted on to a new trajectory despite the crippling burden of a debt of over 2 lakh crore rupees thrust on us by the Left Front Government. We have triumphed despite the fact that over rupees 25 thousand crore is being simply cut off in last financial year from our revenue sources by the Central Government. In the past year, West Bengal outperformed national average in every major sector. From GSDP to Agriculture, from Industry to Service Sector – the growth story of our state is a shining example of rapid development.
We have also been equally attentive to the cause of weaker sections of the society, minority communities, other backward classes, youth and women. Special emphasis on health, law and order, education and welfare has given us rich dividend. We are aware of the challenges – the mindless and needless opposition we face everyday – that lie ahead. We draw confidence from the fact that our government enjoys your over whelming support in this journey towards equality and justice. We will work. We will go forward with our heads held high. With honour and conviction and above all with your trust reposed on us we will attend greatness in every field and create resurgence in Bengal.
My sincere thanks to our Maa, Maati and Manush. Shubho Nabobarsho.
Government of West Bengal.
