CM Urges Students to Serve Bengal

During the virtual interaction with students on Thursday, Banerjee advised them to remain focused and not get distracted or give up in the face of challenges and difficulties. She stated, “Always be positive, think positive, feel positive as negative thoughts adversely affect us. Depression is our enemy.”

Adding to her statement, she pointed out the need for more neurologists in WB. The Chief Minister requested all students through the press conference to come back and serve Bengal even if they go abroad for higher studies. Recollecting her school days and appreciating the work of teachers during this pandemic, she said, “Whatever the situation may be, our teachers are our assets as they provide the best education to our children.”

CM Felicitates Board Pass outs

On September 2, 2021, the West Bengal CM felicitated at least 1,700 pass-out successful candidates from all 23 districts of the secondary, higher secondary and Madrasa examinations. The entire ceremony was conducted virtually from Nabanna, considering the ongoing current pandemic. As highlighted by the regional news channels, all the students were gifted laptops and books written by renowned authors of Bengal. 

However, students from ICSE and CBSE Boards could not be felicitated during this ceremony as the state government has not been provided with any merit list. Nevertheless, a letter of greeting from the Chief Minister would be sent to all students who have cleared the Board examinations this year.
