Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee wants to attend a conference of Matua community organization. Preparations have been made by the Namshudra Vikas Parishad for the convention to be held in the first week of May at Kalyani in Nadia district. The people of Namahshudra would like to thank the Chief Minister for taking important steps for the development of the society. Therefore an invitation has been sent to the Chief Minister in the State Secretariat. Let us tell you that a large part of the Namasudras belong to the Matua community.
According to sources, the Chief Minister’s Office has given green signal to his presence in the conference. However, the final preparation of the conference is not possible as the date has not been announced yet. Therefore, if the Chief Minister’s Office announces the date of the convention, the Namasudra Vikas Parishad will start organizing the meeting.
The Namasudra Vikas Parishad hopes that the state government and his party Trinamool Congress can once again clarify the position of Chief Minister Matua on this issue. The chief minister’s party has a political position with Matua to oppose the Citizenship Research Act (CAA) in Bengal. Mamta has been saying from the beginning that Matua refugees are Indian citizens. So there is no need for CAA in Bengal. Matua’s support went to BJP in the last elections. Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a virtual speech at the annual community fair.The votes of the Matua community have been crucial in winning many assembly and Lok Sabha seats. Just as the Matua vote helped BJP win 18 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Matua vote bank of the BJP remained intact in the 2021 assembly elections. But this time Bengal’s ruling party Trinamool wants to regain that vote bank. Therefore, by attending a public meeting in Matua Kalyani, the Chief Minister can give a message to the society to come to his party. Panchayat elections are to be held in the state next year and then Lok Sabha elections in 2024. The Chief Minister is already taking initiative to get Matua’s support.
