“Vision 10 and Vision 20” for development in Bangla

Drawing up “Vision 10 and Vision 20” plan for better performance and development in the next 10-20 years, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said the state’s Gross Domestic Product has gone up by 2.5 times in the past eight years.

Mamata Banerjee said in 2011 when the Trinamool Congress-led government came to power in Bengal, the state GDP was Rs 4.74 lakh and in 2018 it is Rs 11.55 lakh crore. “See the jump, it is over 2.5 times. Compare the performance of the state government from 1947 when the state was divided and India got Independence and today you will find that Trinamool Congress has gone excellent work in the past eight years.”

The Chief Minister maintained that in tax revenue collection, the state government’s achievement is huge. It is Rs 65, 541 crore in 2018-19 against Rs 21,000 crore in 2011. Similarly, in capital expenditure in 2018-19, it is Rs 23, 787 crore against Rs 2,225 crore in 2011. The Bengal government’s expenditure in the physical infrastructure sector in 2018-19 is Rs 9,553 crore against Rs 1,758 crore in 2011.

She said projects like Kanyashree, Sabuj Sathi, Sabuj Shree, Utkarsh Bangla and Khadya Sathi have helped crores of people in the state. “These projects have pushed Bengal forward,” the CM maintained.
