Kolkata, Sep 2: Mamata Banerjee became the chief minister of West Bengal for the third consecutive time and to commemorate her huge success a community puja in the outskirts of the city has decided to develop the idol of Goddess Durga on the likes of the chief minister.

The organising club – Nazrul Park Unnayan Samiti located at Baguhati in the eastern fringes of the city will have its theme — “Mamata, You are the only Hope” — an endeavour to showcase the mass beneficiary schemes of the chief minister to reach out to the marginalised sections of the society.

“This is not political publicity. Chief minister Mamata Banerjee in the last ten years has worked tirelessly not only to change the image of the state but also to provide government benefits to those who have been out of the mainstream of the development of the state. This is social awareness and not political propaganda,” one of the organisers of the puja said.

The pandal of the Puja this year will portray the popular “Lakkhir Bhandar” scheme, a monthly dole scheme for women of each family ranging from Rs 500 to Rs 1,000. However, the main attraction of the Puja will be the fibreglass-made statue of Goddess Durga which will be in the form of the chief minister.

The ten hands of Goddess Durga replicating the chief minister will be shown reaching out to the people will all her popular beneficiary schemes like Kanyashree to make the girls self-reliant, Yuvashree for the youth, Duare Sarkar, government at the doorsteps, Parai Parai Samadhan, solution of problems at the local levels and other beneficiary schemes.

Potter Montu Pal said that the fibreglass-made idol will be prepared keeping in mind the facial impression of the chief minister. “Like the chief minister, the idol will sport white saree and bathroom sleepers. In the background of the idol, there will be the logo of ‘Biswa Bangla’. And the ten hands of the idol will carry replicas of the ten most popular developmental schemes,” he said.

“Durga puja is symbolic where goddess Durga is the destroyer of the evil forces in the society and here our chief minister is the people’s true representative who has been working tirelessly to make our lives beautiful. On one hand she is trying to bring investment for the state, improving the economy and on the other hand she is distributing those benefits to the people. It seems that she, like goddess Durga, is working with ten hands and so she becomes the theme of our puja,” the organiser said.

“In this pandemic situation when all the other states have been grappling in the dark, she was the lone chief minister who was not only successful in controlling the raging pandemic but like a mother gave food and shelter to all the people who came to the state. She didn’t discriminate between the people from our state and those from other states. This image of Mamata Banerjee should be an eye opener for all the other states,” he added.

“The people of West Bengal are reaping the benefits of her developmental works. Now we want the people of the entire country to do the same. So, we have selected the theme of Goddess Durga with her 10 hands but in the form of the chief minister,” he said.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
