for the way they had ignored the blistering heat and had refused to be provoked
in any manner while exercising their democratic right to vote.

initiatives were adopted to blacken the image and heritage of Bengal,’ and
that the elections ‘had seen the sad development where the people of the state
as well as the state administration were attempted to be humiliated.’

response to the attempt made from certain quarters to insult the citizens of
Bengal based on shop-soiled and unfounded allegations raised by the opposition.

challenge and a big responsibility for emoting a more responsive role, mingling
with the mass of the people all the time. Biman Basu has called upon all Party
units and all Party workers to appreciate the purport and significance of the
electoral triumph and to ensure that every section of the populace got involved
in the struggle and development that shall mark the years to come in Bengal.
