    लखनऊ 26 मार्च। “किसानों व नौजवानों के हक की लड़ाई के लिए आगामी 31 मार्च को राष्ट्रीय लोकदल द्वारा प्रदेष के सभी जिला मुख्यालयों पर धरना प्रदर्षन किया जायेगा” यह घोषणा करते हुये राष्ट्रीय लोकदल के प्रदेष अध्यक्ष मुन्ना सिंह चैहान ने कहा कि बेमौसम बारिष से फसल बर्बादी के कारण किसानों की मौतों का सिलसिला थम नहीं रहा है और प्रदेष सरकार कह रही है कि 27 फरवरी से 15 मार्च के बीच सिर्फ 25 किसानों की मौत हुयी है परन्तु किसी किसान ने आत्महत्या नहीं की है इससे साबित होता है कि सरकार की आंखों पर सत्ता की पटटी बंधी होेने के कारण किसानों का दुख दर्द दिखाई नहीं देता।
    श्री चैहान ने प्रदेष सरकार को किसानों की अनदेखी का आरोप लगाते हुये कहा कि पहले तो प्रदेष सरकार ने मिल मालिकों से मिलीभगत करके गन्ना किसानों को खूब ठगा और अब केन्द्र सरकार उनकी जमीन हथियानें के लिए षड़यंत्र रच रही है। उन्होंने आगे कहा कि पूरे सूबे के किसानों को लगातार कोई न कोई मुसीबतों का सामना करना पड़ रहा है पहले सूखे और बाढ़ ने किसानों को तबाह किया और अब असामयिक ओलावृष्टि ने किसानों की खून पसीने से सींची गयी फसलों को चैपट कर दिया है। जिससे समूचे किसान वर्ग पर पहाड़ टूट पड़ा है।
    श्री चैहान ने पुलिस भर्ती में की गयी धांधली की सी0बी0आई0 जांच की मांग करते हुये कहा कि नौजवान देष का भविष्य होते हैं और प्रदेष सरकार ने उन्हीं के साथ भेदभाव करते हुये धांधलेबाजी की है। उन्होंने कहा कि पुलिस भर्ती में बुलाए गये अभ्यर्थियों में अधिकतर इटावा, मैनपुरी और कन्नौज के हैं। इनकी संख्या 30 हजार से अधिक है, जबकि कुल करीब 55 हजार अभ्यर्थियों को बुलाया गया है। ओ0एम0आर0 सीट में मनाही के बावजूद व्हाइटनर का प्रयोग किया गया। प्रदेष सरकार ने किसानों और नौजवानों को धोखा दिया है जिन्होंने अपना वोट देकर सत्ता सौंपी थी परन्तु राष्ट्रीय लोकदल किसानों और नौजवानों के साथ हो रहे अन्याय को किसी भी कीमत पर बर्दाष्त नहीं करेगा और 31 मार्च को प्रदेष सरकार को घेरेगा

    लखनऊ 24 मार्च। राष्ट्रीय लोकदल के प्रदेष अध्यक्ष मुन्ना सिंह चैहान ने फसल बर्बादी के कारण सदमें से हो रही किसानों की मौतों पर चिंता व्यक्त करते हुये कहा कि असामयिक ओलावृष्टि से बर्बाद हुयी फसलों के नुकसान से किसानों की मौतों का सिलसिला थम नहीं रहा है। प्रदेष का किसान अभी बाढ़ और सूखे के प्रकोप से उबर नहीं पाया था कि पुनः असामयिक बरसात से फसल बर्बादी के कारण उस पर पहाड़ टूट पड़ा है जिसके सदमें से किसानों की मौते हो रही हैं।
    श्री चैहान ने कहा कि झांसी के तीन, हमीरपुर, जालौन के दो दो तथा बांदा और रामुपर में एक एक किसान की मौत हो गयी है। परन्तु प्रदेष सरकार मुआवजा देना तो दूर उनकी सुध भी नहीं ले रही है। उन्हांेने कहा कि प्रदेष सरकार किसानों का बिजली बिल भी नहीं माफ कर रही है और न ही फसल क्षतिपूर्ति के लिए पर्याप्त धन मुहैया करा रही है। प्रदेष सरकार के किसान विरोधी आचरण के कारण ही किसानों में हताषा और निराषा व्याप्त है।
    श्री चैहान ने प्रदेष सरकार से मांग करते हुये कहा कि विपरीत मौसम व कुदरत के कहर से हुये फसल की बर्बादी का आंकलन कराकर किसानों को उचित मुआवजा दिया जाय, फसल की बर्बादी से असामयिक काल के गाल में समाये किसानों के परिजनों को मुआवजा राषि तत्काल दी जाय तथा परिवार के एक सदस्य को सरकारी नौकरी दी जाय, प्रदेष में आयी दैवीय आपदा से प्रभावित क्षेत्रों के किसानों का 6 माह का विद्युत बिल माफ किया जाय साथ ही वर्तमान फसल के कृषि ऋण से सम्बन्धित सभी कर्जें माफ किये जाय, केन्द्र सरकार द्वारा घोषित गेहूं के न्यूनतम समर्थन मूल्य पर प्रदेष सरकार द्वारा 500 रू प्रति कुन्तल बोनस दिया जाय, वर्तमान आपदा से राहत देने हेतु किसानों का पिछला व वर्तमान सत्र का गन्ना मूल्य तत्काल भुगतान कराया जाय तथा जायद की फसल हेतु बीज व खाद पर अनुदान दिया जाय

    लखनऊ 22 मार्च। राष्ट्रीय लोकदल के प्रदेश अध्यक्ष मुन्ना सिंह चैहान ने पुलिस भर्ती में की गयी धांधली का विरोध जता रहे युवाओं पर प्रशासन द्वारा किये गये लाठी चार्ज की घोर निंदा करते हुये कहा कि एक तरफ तो प्रदेश सरकार द्वारा दरोगा और सिपाही भर्ती में धांधली की जा रही है और दूसरी तरफ बेकसूर नौजवानों पर पुलिस लाठियां भांज रही है।
    श्री चैहान ने कहा कि दरोगा भर्ती में महिलाओं की कटआफ मेरिट लिस्ट 239.2 तक है परन्तु ताराकुमारी 271 और चंचल कुमारी 292 तक नम्बर पाने के बाद भी उनका नाम मेरिट लिस्ट में नहीं है इससे साबित होता है कि मेरिट लिस्ट में घोर घांधलेबाजी की गयी है। इसके अलावा 4000 पदों के लिए भर्ती प्रक्रिया में बुलावा पत्र 14256 अभ्यर्थियों को भेजा गया। इसी तरह सिपाही भर्ती में इटावा और मैनपुरी के ही अधिकतम अभ्यर्थियों का चयन किया गया है। इससे साफ जाहिर है कि भर्ती प्रक्रिया में पक्षपात किया गया है और निष्पक्षता नही की गयी है।
    श्री चैहान ने कहा कि राष्ट्रीय लोकदल के राष्ट्रीय महासचिव जयन्त चैधरी जी अभ्यर्थियों के साथ है और राष्ट्रीय लोकदल अभ्यर्थियों की लड़ाई विधान सभा से लेकर माननीय राज्यपाल महोदय से गुहार लगाने को तैयार है क्योंकि राष्ट्रीय लोकदल किसी भी अभ्यर्थी के भविष्य के साथ खिलवाड़ नहीं होेने देगा। रालोद के विधायक मजबूती से उनकी समस्याओं को विधान सभा में उठायेंगे

    इसके लिए 24 मार्च को रालोद की छात्र तथा युवा इकाई अभ्यर्थियों से मिलकर उनके साथ हो रहे अन्याय के खिलाफ संघर्ष करेंगा

    लखनऊ 18 मार्च। आज राष्ट्रीय लोकदल के पदाधिकारियों और कार्यकर्ताओं ने प्रदेष अध्यक्ष मुन्ना सिंह चैहान के नेतृत्व में प्रधानमंत्री नरेन्द्र मोदी का पुतला दहन करके केन्द्र सरकार द्वारा जाट आरक्षण के मुकदमें में समुचित पैरवी न करके जाट आरक्षण निरस्त किये जाने पर अपना विरोध दर्ज कराया। राष्ट्रीय लोकदल के पदाधिकारियों और कार्यकर्ताओं ने पैदल मार्च करते हुये जाट आरक्षण बहाल करो, नरेन्द्र मोदी होष में आओ-पिछडे़ वर्ग से मत टकराओं जैसे नारे लगाते हुये प्रधानमंत्री का पुतला लेकर विधान भवन की ओर बढे़ तो प्रषासन ने रोकने की कोषिष की आक्रोषित कार्यकर्ताओं ने सड़क पर ही प्रधानमंत्री का पुतला जलाकर अपना विरोध प्रदर्षन जारी रखा। विरोध प्रदर्षन में प्रदेष अध्यक्ष के साथ राष्ट्रीय प्रवक्ता डाॅ0 मसूद अहमद तथा राष्ट्रीय सचिव षिवकरन सिंह थे।
    श्री चैहान ने कहा कि पूर्ववर्ती यू0पी0ए0 सरकार के कार्यकाल में तत्कालीन नागरिक उडडयन मंत्री चै0 अजित सिंह जी के प्रयासों से केन्द्रीय सेवाओं में भारत के संवैधानिक ढांचे के तहत ओबीसी वर्ग की श्रेणी में हिन्दु, मुस्लिम, सिक्ख और विष्नोई जाटों को समान रूप से आरक्षण का लाभ दिया गया था जिसे केन्द्र सरकार की लचर पैरवी से जाटों को मिलने वाली ओबीसी की सुविधाएं मा0 उच्चतम न्यायालय ने खारिज कर दी। उन्होंने कहा कि यदि केन्द्र सरकार जाटों के राजनैतिक आर्थिक व सामाजिक पिछडे़पन का वर्णन व्यवहारिक ढंग से किया होता तो मा0 उच्चतम न्यायालय पूर्व में किये गये आरक्षण से सहमत रहता परन्तु वर्तमान सरकार ने साजिष के तहत सुस्त पैरवी करके उक्त आरक्षण को निरस्त करवा दिया।
    श्री चैहान ने आगे कहा कि राष्ट्रीय लोकदल के राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष चै0 अजित सिंह जी कानूनी पहलुओं का परीक्षण कर रहे हैं तथा राष्ट्रीय लोकदल जाटों को उनका हक दिलानें के लिए मा0 उच्चतम न्यायालय के समक्ष पुर्नविचार याचिका दायर करने की सम्भावनाओं को तलाष रहा है। पिछली केन्द्र सरकार ने नौ राज्यों के जाटों को अन्य पिछड़ा वर्ग की सूची में शामिल किया था जिसके आधार पर जाट वर्ग को केन्द्रीय नौकरी और उच्च षिक्षा में ओबीसी वर्ग को मिलने वाले 27 फीसदी आरक्षण का लाभ दिया जा सके। पूर्व केन्द्र सरकार के इस फैसले को स्थगित करने के लिए भी मा0 सर्वोच्च न्यायालय में कई याचिकाएं दायर की गई थी परन्तु चै0 अजित सिंह की मजबूत पैरवी से मा0 उच्चतम न्यायालय ने स्थगन आदेष देने से मना कर दिया था। इसी तरह यदि वर्तमान सरकार भी जाट आरक्षण सही ढंग से मा0 उच्चतम न्यायालय के सामने सबित करता तो जाटों के लाखों नौजवानों के साथ अन्याय न होता।
    पुतला दहन करने वालों में मध्य उ0प्र0 के अध्यक्ष राकेष कुमार सिंह मुन्ना, हाजी वसीम हैदर, प्रो0 यज्ञदत्त शुक्ल, चन्द्रबली यादव, सुरेन्द्र नाथ त्रिवेदी, जिलाध्यक्ष लखनऊ अनिल कुमार सिंह, सोनू रावत, रविप्रकाष सैनी, रमावती तिवारी, शकुन्तला कुरील, लक्ष्मी गौतम, आर0पी0 सिंह चैहान, आदित्य विक्रम सिंह, फूलचन्द्र यादव, हर्ष चैहान, बी0एल0प्रेमी, शहजाद सिददीकी, राजेष शर्मा, हरपाल यादव, मो0 शारिक, अषोक त्रिपाठी, पप्पू मिश्रा, स्वदेष रावत, ब्रजेष रावत, सहित सैकड़ो रालोद पदाधिकारी और कार्यकर्ता मौजूद थे

    लखनऊ 17 मार्च। केन्द्र सरकार की लचर पैरवी से जाटों को मिलने वाली ओबीसी की सुविधाएं मा0 उच्चतम न्यायालय ने खारिज कर दी। ज्ञात हो कि पूर्ववर्ती यू0पी0ए0 सरकार के कार्यकाल में तत्कालीन नागरिक उडडयन मंत्री चै0 अजित सिंह जी के प्रयासों से केन्द्रीय सेवाओं में जाटों को ओबीसी वर्ग के तहत आरक्षण का लाभ दिया गया था। भारत के संवैधानिक ढांचे के तहत पहला आरक्षण हुआ था जिसमें धर्म की पाबन्दी नहंीं थी और हिन्दु, मुस्लिम, सिक्ख और विष्नोई जाटों को समान रूप से आरक्षण का लाभ दिया गया था।
    राष्ट्रीय लोकदल के प्रदेष अध्यक्ष मुन्ना सिंह चैहान ने कहा कि वर्तमान भाजपा नीति केन्द्रीय सरकार ने जानबूझकर सरकार का पक्ष मजबूती से मा0 उच्चतम न्यायालय के समक्ष नहीं रखा। फलस्वरूप अदालत ने जाटों को दिये जाने वाले आरक्षण को निरस्त कर दिया है। उन्होंने कहा कि यदि केन्द्र सरकार जाटों के राजनैतिक आर्थिक व सामाजिक पिछडे़पन का वर्णन व्यवहारिक ढंग से किया होता तो मा0 उच्चतम न्यायालय पूर्व में किये गये आरक्षण से सहमत रहता परन्तु वर्तमान सरकार ने साजिष के तहत सुस्त पैरवी करके उक्त आरक्षण को निरस्त करवा दिया।

    The 119th birthday of our National Hero, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is being celebrated today with due honour and reverence all over the state.

    I took part in the state-level celebration of Netaji's birthday at Darjeeling.

    Since last year, we have been observing this programme at Darjeeling considering Netaji's deep connection with the Hills. Many Gorkha brothers were members of Netaji's Indian National Army (Azad Hind Bahini) who laid down their lives for our country's independence.

    I salute to all of them.

    Many distinguished persons from different walks of life, cultural personalities, my Tollywood friends, my brothers and sisters from the hills participated in huge numbers.

    A very colourful cultural programme was held by my Sherpa, Lepcha brothers and sisters. I congratulate everyone for the wonderful performance.

    Indranil Sen and Saumitra Roy also enthused the audience with their melodious voices.

    My best wishes for the people of the hills. I love Darjeeling and all my hill brothers and sisters. I want to see them to smile always.

    History remains incomplete without Netaji. Our Nation salutes him.

    "Kadam kadam baraye ja, khushi ke geet gaye ja..."

    "Jai Hind."

    I have attended the North Bengal Industry Meet, 2015 at Siliguri today, which is the first of its kind in North Bengal.
    My industry and business friends from neighbouring countries of Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh and 7 North Bengal districts participated. Many captains of industry from Kolkata have joined the programme.
    I am obliged to all of them.
    North Bengal is the gateway to the North East, and its strategic proximity to Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh offers huge business potential.
    I am happy to share that we have already received more than Rs. 4000 Crore investment proposals very recently which are being implemented on a fast track. Today's Industry Meet has generated significant enthusiasm and lots of investment proposals are in the offing. I welcome all of them.
    All the investment proposals will be monitored by a Core Committee for North Bengal and I will personally come every six months to review the progress.
    For the convenience of investors and tax payers of North Bengal, a new Bench of the West Bengal Sales Tax Appellate and Revisional Board in Siliguri has been launched today. An MSME Facilitation Centre and an Unique Clearance Centre to look into mutation and conversion of land for industrial purposes at "Uttarkanya" have also been created. We are going to set up a new Convention Centre and an Industrial Fair Ground in North Bengal.
    It is also good to inform that 5 sick tea gardens of our Tea Development Corporation are now being developed and rejuvenated. Employees there will be happy soon.
    We are committed to extend all help and support for the growth and development of North Bengal.
    My best wishes to all of them.

    Today I have come to Jharkhali, the gateway to Sunderban - the world-famous UNESCO heritage site. I have come to these areas innumerable times. I visited Sagar Island two months back and named three new beaches “Bhor”, “Dheu” and “Roop”. There are many remotely-located and isolated islands. I come here to connect with the local people.

    There is huge tourism potential here. Sajnekhali, Pakhiralay, Bakkhali, Gadkhali, Jharkhali, Sudanyakhali, Dobaki, Henry Island ­ all these are beautiful places. I invite everyone to come and visit these places and enjoy the flora and fauna and the beautiful mangrove forests.

    Today I have inaugurated a new bridge "Mridanga" in Mathurapur­II Block which has been built at a cost of Rs.60 crore. Many more such bridges are being built in the Sunderbans to improve connectivity and promote tourism.

    At Jharkhali, I was present in the foundation stone laying ceremony of a budget and star category eco­resort being set up in PPP mode. I named it "Jhar". Apart from being a world class eco­tourism facility, this project in 100 acres of land, will cause significant socio­economic development of the area.

    A wildlife park and tiger rescue and rehabilitation centre was also initiated today at Jharkhali. I have named it "Baghrya Sundari" and this will be the first wildlife park and zoo of its kind in the mangroves in the world.

    All round development is our commitment. My best wishes to all the brothers and sisters of Sunderban area.

    Two important road projects ­ from Pundibari to Baxirhat and from Changrabandha to Coochbehar through Mathabhanga, were initiated today. These roads, when completed, will bring more social and economic development in and around Coochbehar.

    Also to encourage growth of MSME sector in Coochbehar, I have announced increase in subsidy from 25 to 50 per cent.

    The lush greenery of Dooars and the warmth and hospitality of the people of North Bengal has brought me to Jalpaiguri again.

    Today I have inaugurated a new 'Sports Village' in Jalpaiguri. I have named the Sports Village as ‘Jalpaiguri Biswa Bangla Krirangan’.

    Built with nearly Rs.20 Crore expenditure, this modern sports complex houses international level facilities for badminton, table tennis, basket ball, swimming, boxing, other indoor and outdoor games and cultural activities.

    This will certainly be an asset for budding players to boost their sporting talent.

    I am also happy to share with you that two international highways running through Bengal and connecting Nepal and Bhutan with Bangladesh under the Asian Highways project will be built. Today, commencement of work was flagged off from Jalpaiguri, along with a host of other new projects and facilities.

    This road connectivity will create more opportunities for trade and commerce, cultural and social exchanges of Bengal with Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh. People of North Bengal will very much be benefited.

    I congratulate all the people. My best wishes are always with them.

    I am in politics since my childhood days, and my public life spans over more than 26 years.

    I feel like sharing with my facebook friends that ever since the new Government has come to power at the Centre, there is an increasing trend of interference by the Central Government in the state matters.

    The beauty of federal structure is the jurisdiction of working between the Centre and the State and some by both. Primarily, the role of the Central Government is to deal matters concerning major policies/decision making issues. It is expected that Centre and the States do not encroach upon the areas of activities of others.

    Now-a-days, the Central Government tends to frequently and unnecessarily interfere in state matters what is not at all expected as per our Constitution.

    Even certain controversial matters are coming up in electronic media like Doordarshan and private channels are being persuaded, resulting in fomenting communal tension in different states. This is being done with active support of the Central Government, which is acting like a political party.

    This practice is unprecedented, undemocratic and unethical. This marks a dangerous signal of violation of the Constitutional norms, jeopardizing the federal structure and democratic fibre of our country.

    In my view, the need of the hour is to share it with all friends who believe in federalism and democracy.

    Let us be united to combat the communal forces.

    Let us work together to protect our federal structure as per our Constitution.

    Today I am in Darjeeling.
    My darling Darjeeling is always very charming.
    It is my sweet home.
    Drawn by the beauty of the place and love of the people, I have come here nearly 40 times.
    My full Government of West Bengal team is with me today at Darjeeling.
    I have laid the foundation stone of a unique North Bengal Wild Animals Park, which will come up near Siliguri on the way to Darjeeling.
    The animals will roam around freely in open spaces of about 297 hectares and can be seen by visitors during safari rides in special vehicles.
    It is indeed good news for our nature and wildlife lovers and tourists of the country and abroad who can enjoy African Safari experience in this Rs.250 Crore project that will come up in less than two years.
    Drinking water is very scarce in Darjeeling. During the months from January to May and during peak tourist seasons, the town faces acute water scarcity.
    We have set up a Water Supply Project from river Balason. Today, I have commissioned the project. Water from this project will be supplied to Darjeeling town and surrounding areas through pipe network which will be set up very soon. At the moment, the existing pipeline will be used for enhanced water supply.
    For convenience of tea garden workers in particular as also other workers of North Bengal, we are setting up a North Bengal Office – “Shram Bhaban” of Labour Department. Today, I have laid foundation stone of this office building.
    Our Mayel Lyang Lepcha Development Board set up earlier is doing excellent work for the Lepcha community.
    For the Tamang community, we have today announced formation of a Board to work in a focussed manner for development of Tamang brothers and sisters and preservation of their rich heritage.
    My best wishes to all of them.

    We heard about a strong and vibrant India before the government came to power. We thought that it will be delivered to provide good governance.

    But from the beginning, we are getting disappointed. Only one positive sign of the new government is established in two budgets that they have become a government of the FDI, by the FDI and for the FDI.

    Already, there is FDI in the retail. Now FDI is increased to 49% in Defence, and Insurance Sectors. In addition, disinvestment in banking sector is up to 49%.

    All these will adversely affect the people of the country.

    In our State ‘Kanyashree’ project was launched for the first time with a provision of about ₹ 1000 crore. It is really shocking to see that an important scheme for girl child ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Parao’ has been announced with only a meager ₹ 100 crore for all states and UTs together. Is it not a mockery?

    Again ₹ 100 crore has been allocated for the start-up companies for the rural youth. As against about 55 crore of rural youth population in the country, only ₹ 100 crore is highly insulting to them.

    Even though, West Bengal has tremendous potential for textiles sector, it does not find place among the six new textiles clusters announced in the budget.

    West Bengal, even being the largest fruits and vegetables producers in the country, has been denied for Horticulture University announced in the budget.

    Even in 100 days’ work scheme, where the poor people are involved, not a single paise has been increased in allocation. On the other hand, prices of petrol, diesel and kerosene along with prices of fruits and vegetable and other essential commodities are increasing day by day.

    The budget is visionless, missionless and actionless from the angle of the common people. It is not going to stimulate growth and development of the poor.

    In both the budgets, it is noticeable that Bengal and so many other states are getting deprived.

    The new government has just started functioning with a political vendetta. It is the morning that shows the day.

    Alipurduar emerges as a new district in the map of Bengal.

    In a historic programme today at Alipurduar, the new district was ceremonially inaugurated, thus fulfilling the long-standing demand of the people of the region.

    We are indeed happy for having been able to fulfil their aspirations.

    On this occasion, I congratulate the people of North Bengal, especially of Alipurduar and Jalpaiguri, and also the people of Bengal.

    The creation of the new district will largely benefit the adivasis.

    The subdivision of Alipurduar was more than 100 KM away from the district headquarter at Jalpaiguri. Some Blocks within the subdivision were even nearly 150 KM away. It was really very difficult for the people to commute such long distances to get their jobs done in the district headquarters.

    Keeping in view the needs of the people and providing better services to them, and above all, enabling more administrative efficiency, our Government took the decision of bifurcating Jalpaiguri district and carve out the new District of Alipurduar with 8 police stations.

    Hearty greetings to all my brothers and sisters of Alipurduar.

    On my return trip from Alipurduar, I have penned a few lines, which I would like to share with all of you.

    শুভ জন্মদিন

    রৌদ্র মেঘের স্বর্ণালী ছায়ায়

    আমার হৃদয়ের নব দুয়ার
    নতুন জেলা তুমি আলিপুরদুয়ার।

    অরণ্য মাতার সবুজ ছোঁয়া
    চিলাপাতা, মেন্দাবাড়ি, জয়ন্তী
    ভ্রমন যাত্রীদের প্রকৃতি আরতি।
    পাহাড় নদী সবুজে ঘেরা
    তরাই ডুয়ার্স এক স্বর্ণচূড়া
    জলপাইগুড়ি ও আলিপুরদুয়ার
    দুই অঙ্গে দুই রূপ-বাহার।
    ইতিহাসে হল নতুন সংযোজন

    Today is World Environment Day.

    Environment is the most important resource for life.

    We draw more, than give back to nature and environment.
    In the words of Tagore – “দিয়েছি যত নিয়েছি তার বেশি”।

    To save our very existence, we need to save earth, trees, water, sea, river, all water bodies and keep the air clean to prevent global warming. This is necessary for a sustainable environment.

    Let us all strive towards this goal for our better tomorrow.

    Incidentally, today I am in the midst of lush green forest cover at Jaldapara National Park in North Bengal. The greeneries, captivating flora and fauna, beautiful elephants, rhinos, the fast flowing streams and above all, the warmth of the people around, have left me spell-bound.

    I am uploading some pictures for all of you to see.

    I have two meetings today – Tribal Advisory Council and Uttar Banga Unnayan Parishad. Lastly, I will join a ‘Tree Plantation’ programme at Hollong.

    সবুজ প্রকৃতি আমাদের মা।

    প্রকৃতির আঁচলে ভরা থাক আকাশ, বাতাস, নদী, সমুদ্র, সূর্য, চন্দ্র, তারা।
    ভরা থাক স্মৃতি সুধায় পরিবেশ রক্ষার সবুজ আনন্দ ধারা।

    সবুজ বাঁচুক, সবুজ থাকুক, সবুজ ধ্বংস করো না।

    এ পৃথিবী তোমার, আমা্‌র সবার।

    প্রকৃতি নষ্ট করো না।

    Highways and roads are key infrastructure for rapid economic growth.

    To accelerate Bengal’s growth, we have always stressed on building good roads – both highways and rural roads, despite the massive financial and debt burden of Rupees 2 lakh 30 thousand Crore thrust on us by the Left Front regime and the deprivation of funds of about Rupees 87 thousand Crore by the Centre.

    You will be happy to know that during 2013-14, the state has spent nearly Rs.1330 Crore on construction of rural roads. It is a phenomenal increase of 98.5% over the expenditure of Rs.670 Crore made during 2010-11 – the last year of the Left Front Government regime.

    It terms of length of road, more than 2630 KM of rural roads has been constructed during 2013-14, as compared to 1385 KM during 2010-11, thereby registering a huge growth of over 89%.

    Similar progress is also witnessed in case of State Highways, where there has been an overwhelming growth of nearly 145% in expenditure out of the State Plan Fund – increase from nearly Rs.502 Crore in 2010-11 to more than Rs.1230 Crore in 2013-14.

    Another very important sector – drinking water – has also witnessed tremendous growth during our period.

    There has been more than 250% growth in expenditure for creating piped drinking water sources under the PHE Department.

    During 2013-14, the expenditure was more than Rs.1658 Crore as compared to 2010-11 when it was around Rs.470 Crore.

    So you can see: our commitment translates to action – we do what we say.

    Girl child is our asset and we are indeed very proud of them.

    Our Government has launched a novel scheme - “Kanyashree” for the development and well-being of the girl child. Our objective is to instill confidence among them, to encourage their education, and to discourage their early marriage.

    It was launched on 1st October, 2013, and the response has been so huge that within six months, nearly 13 lakh 20 thousand girls have registered and more than 8 lakh 73 thousand have already received benefits under “Kanyashree”.

    In terms of simplicity, transparency and outreach, “Kanyashree” scheme is unique and first of its kind in India.

    Not only can an applicant apply for the scheme in her school, madrasah, vocational training centre or wherever she is studying, for transparency purpose, the entire scheme can be accessed online on a dedicated website -
    www.wbkanyashree.gov.in

    Our scheme is helping retention of adolescent girls within the educational system and preventing child marriage and trafficking. It has also empowered the young girls as now they have their own bank accounts.

    Not surprising, therefore, that many organizations in the country and abroad have appreciated the scheme for its innovative approach, and an organization of the United Nations - UNICEF has become a partner of our Government for implementation of the scheme.

    মেয়েরা আমাদের ঘরের সম্পদ
    ভবিষ্যতের অনন্যা
    ওদের নিজের পায়ে দাঁড়াতে দিন
    “কন্যাশ্রী” ওদের প্রেরনা।

    “Maati Utsav” has been inaugurated today at Panagarh, Burdwan. This is the second year of “Maati Utsav”.
    মাটি উত্সব মাটিকে ভালোবাসার উত্সব, প্রকৃতিকে ভালোবাসার উত্সব, মানুষকে ভালবাসার উত্সব, প্রকৃতিকে ভালোবাসার উত্সব, নিজেদের শিকড় খোঁজার উত্সব।
    আধুনিক সভতার বিজয় রথে সবুজ ধ্বংস হয়, চাষের জমি কমে যায়, নির্বিচার ভাবে ভূগর্ভস্থ জল উত্তোলনের ফলে মাটির জলস্তর নেমে যায়, পরিবেশ দূষণ, উশ্নায়ন ও অসম উন্নয়ানের ফলে শেষ পর্যন্ত সভ্যতাই সঙ্কটের মুখে পড়ে।
    এই সঙ্কট থেকে মুক্তি পেতে, শিল্প ও কৃষির সুসম বিকাশ বজায় রাখতে, মাটির প্রকৃত অধিকার যাদের তাদের সেই অধিকারের স্বীকৃতি দিতেই - এই মাটি উত্সব।
    আজ মহাশ্বেতা দেবী ছিলেন। ছিলেন প্রসেনজিৎ ও ইন্দ্রনীল। মুখ্য সচিবের নেতৃত্বে পশ্চিমবঙ্গ সরকারের পরিবার ও সাথে ছিলেন।
    ছিলেন আমার বাউল ভাই বোনেরা, ঢাকিরা, ঢোল, ধামশা-মাদল সহ অনেক শিল্পিরা। শঙ্খ ধ্বনি ও উলুধ্বনি দিয়ে শুরু হল উত্সব।
    এ বছরের উৎসবের থিম ছিল “ধানের গোলা”।
    এই উত্সবে ৪০ জন কৃষকদের, মত্স্যচাষীদের ও ফুল চাষিদের আমরা সম্মানিত করেছি সংশ্লিষ্ট ক্ষেত্রে তাদের অসামান্য অবদানের জন্য।
    Also MoU was signed with Bengal Chamber of Commerce & Industries, Raymonds, FICCI, ILFS and ASSOCHAM for training of 1 lakh handloom weavers and workers in gems and jewellery sector.
    আগামী ৭ দিন ব্যাপি মাটি উত্সবে গ্রাম বাংলার বিভিন্ন প্রান্তের মানুষের তৈরি হস্তশিল্প, চারুশিল্প ও চারুকলার প্রদর্শনীরও ব্যবস্থা করা হয়েছে।
    থাকবে আমাদের সকলের প্রিয় বাউলগান, যাত্রাপালা, কবিতা পাঠের আসর, লোকসঙ্গীতের অনুষ্ঠান।
    এই বাংলার মাটিতে জন্মেছেন ও আমাদের প্রিয় বাংলাকে বিশ্বের দরবারে প্রতিষ্ঠিত করেছেন সেই সকল প্রাতঃস্মরণীয় ব্যক্তিদের আমরা সম্মান জানাবো উত্সবের আঙ্গিনায়।

    মাটির মাঝেই বেদ-বেদান্ত
    বাজে আজানের ধ্বনি
    মাটির সাথেই কোরান-পুরাণ
    সংহতির মিলন বানী।

    Today I was at Dooars, the beautiful forest area of Jalpaiguri at the invitation of my brothers and sisters of “Adibasi Bikash Parishad”, an important organization of the Adibasi people.

    In a colourful programme, they conferred on me their highest honour “Singi Dayee” and “Marang Gomke”.

    Last year also, my Lepcha brothers and sisters conferred on me their highest honour “Kinchoom Daarmit”.

    I am indeed touched and overwhelmed and proud to be a part of their honour. My sincere gratitude and thanks to all of them.

    Very humbly, I would like to quote Gurudev :

    “আমার মাথা নত করে দাও হে তোমার
    চরণধুলার তলে ।
    সকল অহংকার হে আমার
    ডুবাও চোখের জলে ।

    মানুষই আমার অহংকার, মাটির সম্মান আমার অলংকার...
