Kolkata: Raising the rhetoric of her performance, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday listed achievements of her government after coming to power in West Bengal two months ago. She was addressing a rally on the occasion of Martyr's Day, which is held annually by the Trinamool Congress in memory of 13 Youth Congress workers killed in police firing here in 1993.

Mamata said her party is committed to masses and will always work for the upliftment of the needy in the state. “I think Ma-Mati-Manush is the real source of strength behind my party’s success," she added.

“My government created one lakh jobs in the last two months and there will be scope for employment of 10 lakh in two years. I will take Bengal to its destined goal where there will be no financial crisis.”

Talking about the signing of the historic Darjeeling hills treaty, bringing peace in Junglemahal, taking back land acquired by the government in Singur and the decision on release of political prisoners, she claimed, “This is a big achievement which no other government could do in such a short time.”

Deliberating on the acute financial crisis in state, Mamata said, “I have sought a financial package from the Centre to rejuvenate the economy. For this I also met Pranab Mukherjee six to eight times to seek financial assistance for West Bengal, which was shattered in last 35 years of Left Front rule. But the package has not yet reached us.”

Listing her government's plans and programmes, she stated that the country will find within one year what the word 'parivartan' (Change) stands for in Bengal.

Earlier, she also felicitated social activist Mahashweta Devi, besides the families of the victims of political movements in Singur and Nandigram.
