During a fiery address in Arambagh, Hooghly, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched a scathing critique against the Central government, reaffirming Bengal's steadfastness.
Banerjee asserted that regardless of the challenges, Bengal would not succumb to external pressures, emphasizing the state's self-reliance initiatives such as Karmashree, which substitutes the Central Budget's MNREGA program.
Banerjee echoed her sentiment, stating, "Bengal will not bow down before anyone."
She further added that efforts are on to malign the Trinamool Congress government on false corruption charges though it has been working hard for the overall development of the state. Addressing a government programme at Arambagh in Hooghly district, Banerjee said despite a "financial blockade" by the Centre, the state government has managed to bring several welfare schemes for the benefit of the poor.
"We have been doing so much for the benefit of the people, but still efforts are on to malign us on fake corruption charges," she said.
