Prime Minister Modi’s promises and worries seem to disappear as soon as the election is over: WB CM Mamata Banerjee

Speaking at the event in Alipurduar on Wednesday, TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee mocked the Centre, saying ordinary people are being deceived by promises such as the creation of separate and diverse states social protection schemes before the elections. “But these never materialize later,” PTI quoted Mamata as saying.

“Before the elections, BJP makes big promises like Ujala plans, opening tea gardens, but after the elections, no BJP leader is seen. BJP policies are harmful to the interests of ordinary people,” Mamata said.

The Chief Minister also said that she wants the Adivasi to compete in the Olympics and win gold for the country.

“Today 510 people got married and under Rupashri scheme I gave them Rs. 10,000. My aim is also to elevate the status of Adivasis. No one can take land from Adivasis. There is an Adivasi Bhawan in Kolkata and another such building is planned in Kalimpong,” the Chief Minister added.

“Under the Chaa Sundari program of the government of Bengal, houses have been built for the tea workers. More than 12,000 houses have already been built. We also provide 1,500 rupees per month to tea workers, who already have free access to electricity, health services and drinking water. Our government also respects tribal leaders like Birsa Munda and Raghunath Murmu by granting public holidays on their birthday,” Mamata added.
