The people of Bengal in the currently concluded election to the West Bengal Assembly has mandated overwhelmingly and reposed their trust and confidence on development, good governance and people first policies of our Government.
During the last five years Bengal has not only scaled new heights and outperformed the country as a whole in several parameters of the social and economic growth, but has also been placed where people of all communities have flourished together with peace prosperity and harmony.
Many of our pioneering schemes in Health, Women & Child Development, Education, Livelihood Generation, e-Governance, Agriculture, Minority Development, Infrastructure, Rural Development sectors to name a few, have won national and international acclaim in spite of the huge debt burden of the previous Government. We have been able to carry out our development agenda for all sections of the society including SC, ST, OBC, minority communities, women, children and the disadvantaged section of the society.
In the days ahead, our focus will also be on our young generation, creation of more employment opportunities and overall development of quality of life for all.
We express our sincere gratitude to the people of Bengal for their huge support and the blessings and instituting our Government for the second consecutive term in office.
Resolved that it shall be our commitment and earnest endeavor in the second term to carry forward the development agenda for Bengal with greater pace, greater focus and greater outreach so that Bengal becomes Number One in the world in terms of peace, prosperity and happiness.
Bangla hobe biswa sera, setai hobe amader agami lokkho.
