Three years of Poriborton in Bengal

Three years of Poriborton in Bengal

May 13, 2011. The date will forever beetched in history, thanks to Didi.

The 34-year old Left `citadel` in Bengalwas converted to rubble. The mandate of Ma, Mati, Manush prevailed over the Redbrigade.

Three years of running a cash-strappedGovernment is an inhuman job. West Bengal Chief Minister Ms. Mamata Banerjeehas proved to be much more than ordinary. Although a lion`s share of the State`srevenue is being taken away by the Centre as installments for the debt incurredby the Left regime, with repeated requests of a debt moratorium falling ontothe deaf ears of the Centre, West Bengal has carried out development in everysector in the State. Unthinkable, yet true.

What has the Government achieved in thesethree years? Democracy, peace and progress. Mamata Banerjee has given aconfidence to the people. There is hope in the air that Bengal can be the best.And Bengal has proven it. From fair price medicine shops to the Kanyashree scheme,from 100-Days Work Scheme to Jangalmahal, Bengal is a national model.

Three years ago, we had little to boastabout. Now we can boast about Brand Bengal – Biswa Bangla. Trinamool raised the slogan bodla noy, bodol chai and lived up to the principle in the lastthree years.

Mamata Banerjee has changed the workculture of the West Bengal Government. She did something that was unthinkable. Sheshifted the State Secretariat from Writers` Buildings to Nabanna (in Howrah). She set up a branch secretariat – Uttarkanya in Siliguri, North Bengal. Sheconducted 54 administrative meetings at block level in three years, thusdemonstrating how power can be decentralised from Kolkata to the districts.

As the old song goes-

Ittakes courage to answer a call,

Ittakes courage to lose your all,

Ittakes courage to risk your name,

Ittakes courage to be true.

ItTakes courage to dare,

Onethat no will share;

To bestanding alone,

Onewhom no one will own;

To beready to stake for another one's sake,

Ittakes courage to be true.
