Addressing the gathering in Hindi, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that in the next three years, workers of each tea garden of the hills, Terai and Dooars will be included in the ‘Cha Sundari’ project. 500 crore rupees has been allocated for the said project. Invitation letters of the ‘Cha Sundari‘ project were handed over to 4,600 labourers in Alipurduar, Darjeeling, and Jalpaiguri districts.
Mamata Banerjee also handed over housing certificates to tea garden workers just a day after Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a ₹ 1,000-crore package for tea gardens in the Union Budget 2021. Tea gardens are an important constituency in states like West Bengal, especially North Bengal and Assam, where polls are due by May.
