Welcoming the mandate given by the people in favour of Trinamool Congress, Sanjiv Goenka, Chairman of the RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, said: “The resounding return of Banerjee is a good news for the people and a great news for those who want Bengal to join and win the eagerly-awaited race for economic development. We are glad that she has won the agni pariksha of people-support and is ready to open her second innings.”
Stating the victory of Trinamool Congress as a “verdict for all round development under Banerjee’s leadership”, Sanjay Budhia, Managing Director of Patton said: “The landslide victory of Banerjee is true reflection of decisive mandate for peace, progress and prosperity reaffirming and reposing continued confidence and unflinching support on performance over promise.”
Sanjay Jain owner of Siddha Group said the people’s mandate will help Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee take initiatives to improve the industrial scenario in West Bengal and take it forward.
The state’s IT sector too welcomed the return of Trinamool Congress government. Kalyan Kar, Vice President of Sector V Stake Holders Associations, said: “This is a new dawn for the state and I am looking forward for more pro-industrialisation policies to come up. A lot of work had taken place in the past five years. Many IT experts returned to the city leaving their job abroad and outside the state. Around 40 per cent of the workforce in the country’s IT sector is from West Bengal. With the formation of the Banerjee’s government for the second time ensures that more youth will get jobs in the IT sector.”
The MCC Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) also welcomed the victory. Manish Goenka, president of MCCI said: “The chamber had heartily congratulated Banerjee for the resounding electoral victory of the party. The people have reposed their faith in her visionary leadership and given the AITMC a well deserved second term in office.” He also pledged his full cooperation and support in all the developmental endeavours in the state.
