West Bengal: CM Mamata Banerjee distributes Students Credit Card to 5000 students

News Desk: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday distributed Students Credit Card to 5000 students at Kolkata’s Netaji Indoor Stadium.

“Cooperative banks are already performing their roles. I urge all state-owned banks to come forward with the same spirit. Please ensure speedy clearance of the proposals. The government stands as the guarantor for each credit recipient. Hence, the sanctioned amount is guaranteed money. There will be no defaulter” she said.

“Our government is committed to ensuring better facilities and amenities for school and college students.  77 lakh female students have already come under the ambit of the Kanyashree scheme, and nine lakh class 11 and 12 students have received smartphones and tablets. Our government has constructed 30 new universities, 14 new medical colleges and 3,000 schools including 365 Santhali ones. West Bengal now tops the foundation literacy index list” she added.

Without taking anyone’s name, she told the authorities “I have come to know that someone is demanding an audit of your financial matters. I tell you that only the government can ask for such an audit. So don’t get scared and work fearlessly”
