West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee left for Madrid, Spain to participate in a three-day business summit on Tuesday. Before boarding the flight CM Mamata Banerjee said, “We are going to Spain after 5 years. Spain was a partner during the Kolkata Book Fair. Spain has a prosperous manufacturing industry. We are going at their invitation. Let us see what progress can be made.”
Bengal Business Summit is scheduled to be held on November 21-23. “Spain officials have visited Bengal many times but we have not reciprocated in the same way. So I am leaving for Spain. In Dubai also we have a business summit,” she further added.
The Chief Minister hoped for a positive outcome from the business summit in Spain. Earlier, CM Banerjee on Monday announced that Dhupguri town in Jalpaiguri district would get the status of a subdivision by the end of 2023.
Last week TMC registered victory from Dhupguri seat in assembly bypolls. Trinamool Congress candidate Nirmal Chandra Roy defeated Bharatiya Janata Party’s Tapasi Roy by 4309 votes in a close contest. Nirmal Chandra Roy got 97,613 votes while the BJP candidate got 93,304 votes. The CPI-M also contested the seat and its candidate finished a distant third.
