"A state government looks after policy implementation. NRC was held in Assam as it was a part of Assam Accord and there is a BJP government there. But here, we run the government," Mamata Banerjee said.
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."
