Investments are pouring in for Bankura: Trinamool Chairperson at Barjora
Trinamool Chairperson Ms. Mamata Banerjee today addressed a rally at Barjora in Bankura district. She talked at length about the development initiatives launched by the Government and asked people to vote for peace and progress. She also targeted the Left and the Centre for the financial crunch. She also asked people to maintain communal harmony.
Excerpts from Chairperson`s speech:
I am glad to inform you all that investments are pouring in for Bankura. Barjora industrial estate has got huge investment. Huge employment will be generated here. We are building marketing hubs so that the self-help groups can sell their products. Five hundred marketing hubs are being set up in the state to generate at least 5 lakh employment opportunities.
We have started the Yuvashree scheme. Had the Centre not taken away our money, I would have generated more employment. CPI(M) incurred debts and we are paying for their sins.
The SSK-MSK workers used to get a meagre salary. We started giving allowances to them. We are giving financial assistance to Asha workers too. We have started allowances for folk artistes. We employ artists for government ads so that they can earn a livelihood. The students of Bankura are good. We have set up a university in Bankura. Many other such initiatives have been taken up.
We have named Andal airport after Kazi Nazrul Islam. We have opened a university named after Nazrul Islam. ITIs are being set up in every block. Every sub-division will have polytechnic colleges. We are honouring stalwarts with Banga Bibhushan, Sangeet Samman. We have been honouring outstanding farmers at Mati Utsav.
CPI(M)-Congress-BJP have formed a “jealousy” alliance. There is no cure for jealousy. I am not alone. People are with me. No matter how many malicious campaigns they run, people will give a fitting reply. We have the coalition with people.
Trinamool will win a huge victory in Bengal and will decide the fate of next Government in Delhi. Only we protest against price rise, FDI. CPI(M)-BJP never protest against Congress. They all are together. Those who do not respect their motherland can never succeed. Bengal is my soil. I will not tolerate any insult to my State. My identity is inconsequential. Ma, Mati, Manush is my family. I am dedicated to the people.
We often make mistakes. We are ready to rectify them. But we will not succumb to pressure tactics. They can kill me if they want. My I will never bow my head down to wrongdoings. Do not fall prey to the traps laid by Opposition. Do not pay heed to rumors.
Stay well, stay blessed. Jai Hind.
