She has also promised to reduce the number of people living below the poverty line from 20 percent to 5 percent and to create 5 lakh new jobs in the state.
Under Krishak Bandhu project, Mamata Banerjee will give 10 thousand rupees a year to 68 lakhs farmers. She promised to create 10 lakh small and medium industrial units in the state.
In the education sector, Mamata Banerjee promised to create model residential schools in each block. Construction of 10 lakh houses under Bengal Home Project. Delivering water and electricity to every house in the state.
