The TMC in West Bengal released a report card on Thursday (December 10), highlighting its government’s welfare policies and development projects over the last 10 years.
The Trinamool Congress on Thursday (December 10) released a ‘report card’ on the Mamata Banerjee government’s 10-year rule in West Bengal, claiming it has done well on all sectors including agriculture and improved the state’s social and health indicators.
State Education minister Partha Chatterjee, who was present at the launch of ''TMC Report Card - Ten Years of Development, said the schemes floated by the Mamata Banerjee government in the last decade have benefited a huge section of people.
Chatterjee said party leaders would reach out to people in all 294 assembly constituencies of the state with the report card.
The event was attended by top ministers like Subrata Mukherjee, Firhad Hakim, Chandrima Bhattacharya, Shovondev Chattopadhyay, Indranil Sen besides MPs Sudip Banerjee and Derek O’Brien.
Partha Chatterjee said, “TMC has raised the allocation for the education sector to Rs 37,069 crore from Rs 13,872 crore. The government distributed bicycles to 8.4 million schoolchildren as part of ‘Sabuj Sathi' scheme.”
Urban development minister Firhad Hakim said, “120,000 unorganised workers have benefited from TMC's social security schemes during emergency situations.”
In its report card, the TMC emphasised that the Mamata Banerjee-led government worked towards social welfare of all communities while ensuring social equality. The report also highlighted a dozen government programmes — Khadya Sathi, Swasthya Sathi, caste certificates, Sikshashree, Jai Johar, Taposili Bandhu, Kanyashree, Rupashree, Aikyashree, MGNREGS, and Krishak Bandhu — and how they played a role in social development of the state since the TMC came to power in 2011.
Opposition parties, however, said there was nothing in the report card about industrialisation as well as law and order situation of the state.
