Kolkata, May 20: West Bengal's new Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today promised to work day and night for seven days without break to learn the state of affairs of the administration.
Stating that she would not take a holiday on Saturday and Sunday, Banerjee told a huge crowd before her residence before leaving for Raj Bhavan, “I will work day and night at least for the next seven days without taking any off on Saturday or Sunday.”
Stating that the state was on the brink of bankruptcy and the situation was “dismal,” she said, “I will have to work now. I can't take a holiday.”
Keeping in mind that people visited her at her residence all through the week, she said, “I will evolve a system so that I can meet people at least once a week.” Promising transparency in the administration and that she would endeavour to solve the people's problems, she said, “I assure you about transparency of our new government.
“I expect people to come forward with their problems and I will do my best to solve them,” Banerjee said. The new chief minister said she would work for peace and development.
“You voted us to power, you are the main pillars. I wish for the return of peace to Bengal. I seek your blessings to run the government smoothly and serve the people,” she said. PTI
