Chief Minister pays off debt to farmers made by Past Government
West Bengal Chief Minister Ms. Mamata Banerjee on Saturday gave away Rs. 45 lakh to nearly 162-farmers in the State. The poor farmers were deprived of their dues by the Left Front government.
Speaking on this occasion the Chief Minister said, `I am concerned about the hapless farmers who have not received their dues from the Left Front government. We do not have sufficient funds, yet, I have tried to help them`.
She said that law will take its own course. `Nobody can run away by depriving the right of poor farmers`, added the Chief Minister.
The programme was organized by the State Agriculture Department at Town Hall in Kolkata.
