Kotshila/Hura (Purulia): West Bengal chief minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee Wednesday said that her government has been able to usher in peace in tribal Jungalmahal area.

The people of Jungalmahal, the forested tribal area of the state, were afraid of both CPI(M) and the naxals during the Left Front rule, she said.

 

But the scenario has changed in the area, which comrpise Jhargram, West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia districts, Banerjee said at an election rally at Kotshila in Purulia district.

“We have been able to establish peace in Purulia and Junglemahal area and many developmental works have been undertaken — mainly water-related projects,” she said.

Criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she said he has done nothing in the last five years.

“Do not vote for BJP. They will do nothing and only dish out lies and make people fight against each other,” the fiesty TMC leader said.

Ms Banerjee, who had spearheaded the anti-land acquisition movements at Singur and Nandigram, said that her government would protect the rights of adivasis including their claim over land.

At another rally at Hura in the same district, she said the government is planning an airport at Charra to connect the district with Kolkata and other places.

The chief minister urged the electorate to help TMC wrest all the 42 seats in the state.
