JALPAIGURI: Listing out the development work undertaken by the Trinamool Congress government in north Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said people should vote for the upcoming Assembly polls keeping her in mind.

"Gautam Deb is not the candidate, Wilson Champramary is not the candidate, Shanta Chetri is not the candidate. Mamata Banerjee is the candidate in all 294 seats," she told an election meeting here on the last day of her campaign in north Bengal.

"Whenever the people needed me I came. It is my duty to serve the people. I came to north Bengal 100 times," she asserted.

The CM also slammed the Left Front for "doing nothing and selling out the state during its 34 years of rule".

"Bengal has turned around from that situation and marched ahead," she claimed.

Mamata said her government never discriminated against people on the basis of party colour, adding eight crore people were getting rice at Rs 2 a kg under her dispensation.

Industrial growth centre was set up in north Bengal besides engineering and medical colleges while 'Uttarkanya' (a separate secretariat for North Bengal) also came up, she said underlining her government's initiatives in the area.
