Bengal CM announces sops on Adhir Chowdhury’s turf

She is on a two day tour of Nadia and Murshidabad. She visited Rejinagar in Murshidabad district, where she held an administrative meeting with the officials of the Murshidabad district.

After winning Municipality Election at Berhampur, Banerjee is believed to be visiting  Murshidabad to challenge the Congress heavyweight Adhir Ranjan Chaudhury by announcing a bunch of developmental projects there. Banerjee attended a rally at Rejinagar, where the Trinamool was defeated by the Congress just 10 months before.

According to Trinamool leader Mukul Ray, Congress may get bad results in Murshidabad and Jangipur. He also added that if the TMC placed the right candidate, then they could easily compete with and defeat Adhir Chowdhury.

In fact, Banerjee has apparently set up a special team to work in Raigunj, Malda North, Malda South, Jangipur, Berhampore and Murshidabad Lok Sabha constituencies, represented by the Congress.

TMC believes that apart from these six seats dominated by the Congress, Banerjee is unlikely to face a stiff opposition in any other seat in 2014. Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had won his Berhampore seat by a margin of 1,82,549 votes. Many in the TMC feel that defeating Chowdhury in his home turf is almost impossible but then Banerjee is unlikely to give up without a tough fight, as her recent trip shows.

Mamata asks Centre to give one-year time for loan repayment

Plassey: Expressing dissatisfaction with the Centre for not heeding to her demand of debt restructuring, Mamata Banerjee said the state should be given at least a year’s moratorium on repayment of interests on central loans. Banerjee, who had been demanding a waiver of interest on the state’s debts for a period of three years, said even a year’s moratorium on repayment of interests on central loans would enable the state to create ten lakh jobs.
