Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, has been in the news for different reasons. Mamata Banerjee News says that she went to Meghalaya to excite out a political storm but ended up creating barely a wave. It was in the year 2011 that Mamata Banerjee first became the Chief Minister of West Bengal. Mamata Banerjee News says that it was as a result of this election that for the very first time, her party TMC won more than two-thirds majority in the Assembly.
Over the period of time, Mamata Banerjee has acquired good political skills.
This is one of the reasons that a large number of opposition parties have joined hands with her. It was in the year 2012 that TMC formed an alliance with Congress Party for national elections. Mamata Banerjee News says that it did not just stop there as TMC also formed an alliance with CPI (M) for state elections.
Mamata Banerjee due to her honest image made a lot of friends.
Mamata Banerjee News says that she also got involved in politics to clean the system as is evident from the fact that after becoming CM, she did not allot any government bungalow for herself. Rather she chose to stay in her own apartment.
Mamata Banerjee is working on improving conditions of women in the state.
If you think that is it, then you are wrong. Mamata Banerjee News says that she has also made plans to introduce compulsory education in KG after the government found out that there are almost 1.5 lakh children who are dropouts from the schools because of their parents’ poverty. She also implemented free medical treatment for people above 75 years of age at all the state-run hospitals and for patients suffering from cardiac diseases and cancer, too, free medical treatment was provided.
Mamata Banerjee is a firm believer in liberalization.
It was in the year 2014 that Mamata Banerjee told the people of West Bengal that she would not allow any restriction on freedom of speech and expression. The reason behind it was because there is a perception which says that people are being harassed for their views. Mamata Banerjee News says that this was the first time in Indian politics where there was ever a non-agitating CM who did not allow any crackdown on opposition parties.
Mamata Banerjee is a firm believer in social welfare.
It was in the year 2014 when Mamata Banerjee launched the Free-Lunch program in her state. The free lunch programme was aimed at giving food to poor students and children. The reason behind it was because of the fact that there were many who thought that these children were left to suffer on their own since their parents could not provide them with food. And now with this initiative, it is no longer an issue of poverty but one of social welfare.
There are many people who think that Mamata Banerjee is a pro-poor chief minister and it is true.

A large number of people believe that Mamata Banerjee has provided proper income support not just for the poor but also for everyday citizens. There are several officials in government who have given testimonies in favor of her welfare schemes.
