Mamata Banerjee announces ‘Chai Sundari’ scheme

News Desk: As the 2021 West Bengal elections are knocking at the door, the Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee is announcing schemes to secure her rule in the state. Few days back she announced housing and allowance for Hindu priests and as unemployment is high in the present day, she inaugurated projects that will give jobs to people. Couple of days back she started ‘Didir Rannaghar’ scheme to provide meals at Rs 5/- to jobless migrant workers.

On Tuesday Mamata Banerjee announced ‘Chai Sundari’ scheme to provide shelter to the homeless tea garden workers. She said “We have planned the Chai Sundari scheme to build homes for the tea garden workers who have no homes. We have tried our best to help them but the tea garden workers are still neglected. People talk about their welfare whenever the elections are around. The tea workers have been demanding brick houses for a long time. Those workers who have no homes will be covered under the scheme”

She added “I do not want any tribal and SC/ST people to face any problem to get their (caste) certificates. There is no need to run after the officials to get attestation, self-attestation is enough.We have decided to allow self-declaration. It’s our policy to end the ploy to block development and we will not allow it. I ask the DMs to look into this”
