Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, Jul 22: The 'Maa Maati and Manush' (Mother, land and people) government after coming into power has left no stone unturned to work for people's welfare. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday,Jul 21 while addressing a political rally at Kolkata promised to offer 'a million' jobs in the next two years.

"I have plans to create ten lakh jobs in the state in the next two years so that the job-seeking youth don't have to go out of the state," said Banerjee while addressing the mammoth gathering.

"During the 34-year rule of the Left Front, They indulged in politics of 'us' and 'them'. But we won't ever do that. We will take everybody along with us to create a new Bengal," she said.

Banerjee's inspiring words are not just "simple speech". It has brought a miraculous or magical development that Bengal has been witnessing for the first time after 34-year long Left regime.

"Our 'Maa Mati and Manush' (Mother, land and people) government has fulfilled most of its promises it had made during the assembly election campaign. We had said that our new government will reclaim the Singur land, we have done it," said Banerjee.

"Right now a case is on. I've already prepared the details of who will get which piece of land," she added, referring to the ongoing legal battle between the Tata Motors and the government on the Singur land issue.

"We had said we will solve the problem of the hills within two months. We have done it. I had promised that I would reach out to the people of Junglemahal. I have kept my promise," stated a proud Banerjee at the Trinamool Congress' 'Shahid Divas' (Martyrs' Day), which is observed every year to mark the death of 13 Congress activists in police firing on this day in 1993 during the Writers' Buildings (state secretariat) blockade agitation.

The Trinamool Congress-led alliance rode to power in the April-May election, ousting the longest serving Communist-led government in multiparty democracy. The Left Front, with the Communist Party of India -Marxist (CPI-M) as pivot, had come to power in 1977.
