West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s protests against demonetisation continued to echo on the opening day of the Bengal Global Business Meet today as she said the industry of state was facing problems due to this exercise. “The industry in the state is facing hardships due to demonetisation and remonetisation. Economy is slowing down and traders, farmers and those in the unorganised sector also facing problems. In spite of that, I’m urging all to come to Bengal and invest here,” Banerjee said here. The meet was attended by senior industrialists of the country along with overseas delegates.

“We are giving relief to the industry. The state has surplus power, skilled and cheap labour, land bank, land map and there is no shortage of land for industry,” she said.

Positioning Bengal as a strategic gateway to the north east and south east Asian countries, Banerjee said investments made here would also reach out to these places as well as neighbouring Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal and some parts of China.

      Who in their right mind will come to this place with investment when the CM of the state is talking about problems rather than solutions? She is conveying to the investors that she is not in good terms with the federal government. Is that not a warning sign for the investor? Would he not rather go to other destinations where he will not face any problem?
