TMC to stress on govt’s achievements during poll
“As elections are round the corner, we are planning to stress on developmental work that our Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and TMC government have done in the last four and half years. Once the elections are announced we will stress on big meetings addressed by our party supremo Mamatadi.
“The return of peace in Junglemahal and Darjeeling will also be highlighted in our campaign. We have asked our party workers and leadership in districts to stress on propagating several developmental projects such as Kanyashree, rice at Rs two per kg, jobs for unemployed youths,” senior TMC leaders said.
The party leadership has also decided to engage grassroots level members in door to door campaign in the areas.
Banerjee last week during a closed door meeting had asked party workers to desist from infighting and spread word about the development work done by the state government.
On Friday she said that her government has created employment opportunities for 68 lakh youth besides creating 98 crore mandays in the state despite “financial hardships”.
