On the occasion of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, Banerjee also listed her government’s work for the upliftment of the tribals and said the state government has set up development boards for the Lepcha, Tamang, Sherpa, Bhutia, Limboo and Adivasi tribal communities of the state.
The move comes against the backdrop of a bitterly fought Lok Sabha polls, where the BJP banked on a Hindutva narrative to challenge the TMC and accused Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of “Muslim appeasement”.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee congratulated the successful students, tweeting, "Congratulations to all students who excelled and all those who took the Madhyamik exams. Good wishes to your parents, your teachers and good luck for all your future endeavours."
PM Modi said: Even Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina sends sweets to me three-four times in a year especially from Dhaka. When Mamata did got to know this, then she also sends sweets for me one or two times in a year."
Emphasising the party's national approach for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, O'Brien said TMC's priority after coming to power would be to ensure Assembly elections in Kashmir and passing the Women's Reservation Bill.
Mamata Banerjee also claimed that the BJP's seat count in the general election will not cross more than 125. The number of seats that the state parties will win will be much more than the BJP's, Banerjee further claimed.
