At the Bengal Global Business Summit, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee got onto the stage to break into a song along with a group of artistes as the top industrialists of the country, including Mukesh Ambani and Sajjan Jindal, sat in the audience watching the performance.

Standing amid a sea of saffron-clad baul artistes, Mamata Banerjee in her trademark white cotton saree held an ‘ektara’ (single string instrument) and started crooning famous Bengali poet Dwijendralal Ray’s ‘dhono dhanne pushpe bhora’, a patriotic song invoking the rich resources and heritage of Bengal.

Mamata Banerjee, who writes poems, paints and also sings, swooned along with the baul artistes as they performed the song on stage.

At the summit, Mamata Banerjee said that 2019 would be the end of the NDA government and a new industrial policy would be made by the mahagathbandhan after the Lok Sabha polls.

Banerjee was addressing the first day of the Bengal Global Business Summit in Kolkata on Thursday.

She assured that the industrialists need not fear as the Modi government is on its way out. “Those who faced problems and left the country, I tell them they can come back and invest,” Banerjee said, leaving the audience confused as to who she could have meant by this.

Days after the dramatic standoff between CBI and Kolkata Police with Banerjee at the centrestage, the chief minister again went hammer and tongs against the Modi government for implicating businessmen and industrialists in income tax cases and scaring them away from the country.

Banerjee once again brought up the issue and added that the central government

will be changed in a few months and they will forge a new industrial policy to boost the Indian economy.
