Kolkata: Virtually sounding the bugle for the Kolkata Municipal Corporation polls, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday praised its present TMC-ruled board and asked the people to vote it back to power.
"The present KMC board is working very well. They have carried various developmental works including restoration of heritage buildings, helping the slum dwellers. We all need to support those who are working well. You have to bring them back," Banerjee, who is also the TMC supremo, said while addressing a KMC programme.
KMC polls are scheduled for April-May this year but the dates have not yet been announced.
Banerjee without naming anyone also lashed out at communal politics.
"Religion doesn't mean provoking one religion against another. Religion means existence of all views all religion under one roof. This is the heritage of our country, of our Bengal," she said.
"India means unity in diversity where all languages, all religion, all caste, all creed can stay together," she said inuagrating the new electric cremation center at Nimtala Burning Ghat in the city.
