  • The assembly election is due in West Bengal next year
  • Earlier it was only up to September, but when she heard about the Prime Minister’s move, she extended it to June
  • PM Modi, in his statement, has said that 80 crores of India’s poorest will get the rations

The assembly election is due in West Bengal next year. The goal of the government would be to win the heart of the masses. So suddenly, every decision made would be people-centric. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised to provide free grain till November. This is marked by the Chhath Puja. However, taking this a step further, the West Bengal government has promised to provide free grain until June 2021. Earlier it was only up to September, but when she heard about the Prime Minister’s move, she extended it to June.

Abishek Banerjee, a party MP and her nephew mocked India’s response of banning 59 Chinese apps as it’s a reaction towards June 15 clash in Ladakh.

Then Bengal polls should swear in a new government by mid-may. The only big opposition to Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress is the BJP. The TMC has been in power for a decade. The Bjp however, won 18 seats in the last election. Hence, it looks like the ruling party will do anything to get back in power as the opposition is slowly gaining momentum in the election.

This is good for the people. In this race, people will be promised various things. But will the promises be delivered is another question.

She has also claimed that the quality of the rations is much better than what the center has offered and also added that only 60% of people in Bengal get Centre rations.

PM Modi, in his statement, has said that 80 crores of India’s poorest will get the rations, which will be extended till the end of November to provide relief during the festive season.

"Keeping in mind all the festivals that are coming up in the next few months, this scheme to provide 80 crore people with 5 kg free ration and 1 kg dal (pulses) per month will now be extended till Diwali and Chhath Puja, or till the end of November," PM Modi said, addressing the nation after the coronavirus outbreak. Amid coronavirus, it has been difficult to exactly gauge what the country needs and in what proportions.

Ms. Banerjee also had certain opinions regarding the decision to ban China’s apps. 

"Only banning some apps will not give a result. We want to give China a befitting reply. The government has to decide on that," she said. 

This shows that heat is gathering up in the election front for both the state and the center.
