West Bengal Assembly braces up for its first woman CM

Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, May 30: After the magnanimous victory of Trinamool Congress in Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee faces her state on Monday, May 30 that is crippled with a debt economy of Rs.1.86 lakh crore. Mamata Banerjee on May 30 attended West Bengal state assembly for the first time as CM.

A debt amount Mamata faces, for the first time as Chief minister would stand as a big challenge for her.

Mamata, who has already established herself as a tough taskmaster has vowed to take Bengal out of the financial mess it is in presently.

Talking over the matter of state's debt burden of Rs 1.86 lakh crore, Pranab Mukherjee said, "The situation is difficult but to solve it, both long term and short term measures that need to be taken will be taken between the state and central government."

Bengal has seen the largest number of civilian casualties in Maoist violence in the last one year. Mamata, on her first day as a CM in the office, offered to talk to the Maoists. Maoist groups too have responded positively. She wishes to talk to any group "for the sake of peace of our state."

A resurgent Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, in the hills, is another worry for Mamata. "They voted for us with the mandate for Gorkhaland. Gorkhaland is in the hearts of the people. The people of Darjeeling want Gorkhaland," said Roshan Giri.

Mamata's slogan "Maa, Maati, Maanush" is what Mamata is still living till now, that means, living for the commons. But, there are countless problems that needs more than just a common solution and for that, she has to put herself and her ministers on a race against the clock.
