The video clippings featuring the “Real Bengal” following an overall development brought by the Trinamool Congress government in the past four and a half years has been viewed by around 10,000 people within 3 hours of its post by Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee in her Facebook page.
For the past few days Banerjee has been posting video clippings featuring various development works that her government had undertaken. The most interesting part of the videos is that single person account of beneficiaries was highlighted in the videos.
The video that she has uploaded on Monday in her Facebook page shows how a woodcutter from Amlasole in West Midnapore and his family was benefitted out of the Khadya Sathi project. The video was uploaded at around 4 pm on Monday and by 7 pm around 10,000 people had viewed the video clippings, 1,100 people liked it and it has been shared by 266 users of the social networking site.
It may be recalled that Amlasole village situated in Bengal - Jharkhand border in Binpur II Block was in the headlines in 2004 for starvation death. Five tribals had died due to starvation in the village in 2004.
In Monday’s video, Kalipada Murmu, the woodcutter from Amlasole, narrated that he faces difficulty in buying rice and cereals at the market price with whatever he earns by cutting woods. Thus the Khadya Sathi project as implemented by Banerjee’s government has helped him immensely.
In the video with some parts in black and white the beautiful landscape of Amlasole has been featured with some women busy in making coir and at the same time Murmu, who is one of the 8 crore people to get rice at Rs 2 per kg, goes on narrating how he was benefitted out of the development projects. The video comes to an end with a request to cast votes in favour of Trinamul Congress.
In the past few days Banerjee has posted two more such videos including one in which a school goer narrates how the development projects helped to turn her dream true. In the video that was posted on March 26, the school goer says that being a Hindi speaking student how she was benefitted with the setting up of Banarhat Hindi College. In the video the girl was found riding her bicycle that was given under “Sabuj Sathi” scheme to her school. This video was viewed by 34,000 viewers and around 3,100 people liked it. Moreover, 763 users of the social networking site have shared the video to circulate it further.
