The Ultimate Yellow Pages Site Launched in Calcutta !!



Mamta Banerjee – The name that Calcutta will not forgot for more than hundreds of years. She is at present Railway Minister and presented the railway budget a few months back, this budget is much more friendlier than any other railway budget so far. This budget has lot more for Calcuttans. She never misses any opportunity to help the poorer section of Calcutta. She is totally committed to help the people of Calcutta in all means. She had struggled a lot in her early life. Previously she was in Congress but after that she left Congress and made a new party called Trinimul Congress. Her party is supporting the NDA Government backed by BJP and its allies in Centre. She is one of the legends ever born in Calcutta.


She meets with general public and hears their problem and tries her level best to solve their problem. The lives of Calcutta’s poor have come to be linked closely with her name, though the association is often made in a spirit for removed from her own endless unforced love of suffering man. If the name of Satyajit Ray come to be inextricably linked to Calcutta, then there is also one other person is synonymous with that of the city – Mamta Di, famous all over the world as Mamta Banerjee.
