Progress made by School Education Dept. in special plan under Backward Region Grant Fund (BRGF) in Jangalmahal
One of the biggest success stories of the Maa, Mati, Manush Government led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is the development of the Jangalmahal area. Consisting of the districts of Purulia, Bankura and Paschim Medinipur, the development in this area was at a standstill two years back, due to Left Wing Extremists. While on one hand, the Government successfully dealt with the Extremists by providing special packages to those who surrendered, side by side, it started a flood of developmental works for the locals.
Let us take a bird’s eye view of what the Government did in the school education sector to bring a turnaround.
