DARJEELING: The Confederation of Indian Industry today lauded West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her "industry-driven development model", which led to "Rs 1,500 crore investment proposals" at the two-day Darjeeling Business Summit here.

For the people living in the hills, the summit presages the beginning of an era of development, peace and prosperity, said Umesh Chowdhary, Chairman, CII Eastern Region, in a statement.

"We congratulate Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her industry-driven development model.

The CII is extremely happy with the investment proposals worth Rs 1,500 crore, announced at the Darjeeling Business Summit," he said.
