If we are in power, 10 lakh will get jobs: Mamata
Reacting to the CMâ€™s claims that she had failed to provide a single job, the Trinamool supremo said, â€œHow many jobs has the CPM government provided in the past 34 years? In the last 12 months, I have started work on factories across the state. If I can do this with only one ministry, imagine what it will be like when I am in charge of all the departments in the state. If I am allowed to stay for five years, I shall ensure that at least 10 lakh people receive employment. Trust me, the Trinamool is the only answer to all your problems. I wonder what the CPM will do once all the industries start functioning and people get direct and indirect employment.â€ According to her, the only factories that have come up in the state till now are those churning out CPM cadres. Accusing the party of having finished off both agriculture and industry in the state, she promised to bring back democracy. â€œI shall bring industry, power and infrastructure to the state. I shall develop Bankura. At the moment, I canâ€™t set up industry here as the Railways doesnâ€™t have land in the district. If anybody is ready to give up land, we shall set up industrial units,â€ she said.
