Arriving at the temporary helipad adjacent to the meeting stage by helicopter at 2 pm, the TMC supremo proceeded to the gathering on foot, warmly acknowledg­ing the crowd along the way. During her speech, security officials arranged for a Rava ethnic dance troupe to come up on stage, adding to the festive

As the meeting concluded, the Trinamool supremo joined the dance troupe for a lively performanc­e, impressing the common people present who joined in with applause. The ground was filled with thousands of people clapping together, creating an atmosphere of joy and unity.

Bhagyashre­e Brahma, the group’s leader, praised Mamata Banerjee’s dedication to the welfare of the poor and pledged continued support. “We never imagined our team would be called to

the stage, let alone having the Chief Minister dance with us,” she remarked.

Anita Brahma, a dancer from the group, highlighte­d the positive impact of the Chief Minister’s initiative­s, such as the folk artist allowance of Rs 1,000 per month. “Today, dancing with her was an unforgetta­ble experience,” she said, expressing regret at not being able to converse with Mamata Banerjee due to her busy schedule.
