Provision of Rs 5,530 Crore for madarasa education in Bengal

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee

Kolkata (Bengal) – The state budget of Bengal for the fiscal year 2024 was presented in February. Among the various schemes, accounts, and projects funded, Rs 5,530 crore have been earmarked specifically for minorities and madarasa education. This substantial allocation has sparked significant discussion on social media platforms.

Many users are reacting to this information, which has been widely circulated online. One user on ‘X’ (formerly Twitter) commented that Mamata Banerjee is a very honest Chief Minister. The user also mentioned that Mamata Banerjee does not behave like those politicians who gain power through Hindu votes and then attempt to appease the Muslims.

Editorial Perspective

Mamata Banerjee, who came to power with strong support from the Muslim community, implements policies favouring Muslims. However, politicians elected primarily by Hindu votes often attempt to appease Muslims without taking any significant actions for the Hindu community.
