It is also one of the most ethnically, linguistically and culturally diverse regions of our nation, where people have lived in harmony since time immemorial. However, despite being resource rich and economic perspective, our region today severely lacks behind the rest of India, due to utter neglect, discrimination, apathy and suppression meted out by the TMC Bengal government for the past 9-years.
