Cooch Behar: Chandrima Bhattacharya, the state president of the Trinamool Women Congress, on Friday instructed women leaders and workers of the party in Cooch Behar district to “develop a clear idea” about welfare schemes ahead of this year’s panchayat elections.
Campaign by women workers and local leaders largely matters in villages. There are instances when, despite being working as a panchayat functionary a woman representatives lacks information about many schemes. We want to ensure that they have knowledge about the social welfare schemes so that they can converse with people effectively. It would also help them in gaining support from common people,” said a Trinamul leader based in Cooch Behar.
“If required, you should prepare a script of your speech and read it repeatedly. It should have a clear description of all initiatives taken by the state. It is a much better practice that trying to give a spontaneous speech as often, there is a chance of missing vital points,” said Bhattacharya. In course of the meeting, the women leaders were handed over a booklet containing details about all the social welfare schemes run by the state.
