I am confident people will vote for us: Mamata Banerjee

Trinamool Chairperson Ms Mamata Banerjee addressed a second campaign rally at Behala today.  She stated that when a party forms a government, the government should run as a separate entity, not controlled by the party. But this is not what is happening with the BJP at the Centre. It is spreading terror and indulging in divisive politics. But the people of Bengal will remain united.

Ms Mamata Banerjee stated that due to the delay in receiving funds from the Centre, the Metro Railway project is stuck. She said that will take up this issue strongly with the Centre to ensure the proper flow of funds for a timely completion of the project.

Since development is the primary agenda of KMC, it is overcoming all barriers and coordinating with the other agencies to carry out its work. The Left-run KMC board had no vision, but this board, through dint of sheer hard work, has done a lot of development work in just three-and-a-half years.

While the CBI is treated like a God by the Opposition, the Chairperson reminded the people there are many cases still pending with the CBI, like the Tapashi Mallick murder case – her parents are still awaiting justice. Trinamool won’t back out because of being threatened through the CBI, the ED, the I-T Department or any other central agency.

We are number one in the 100-days work scheme, and have introduced a number welfare schemes like Kanyashree, fair price medicine shops, etc.

The Chairperson ended her speech by urging the people to vote for Trinamool so that the wave of development continues unabated in Kolkata.
