Ø DURING our 34 years of rule, Bengal was in the forefront of rice production. There were no communal riots. There were regular local body elections and we were the model for all other states in the field of land reforms. In other fields like education, health, nutrition, life expectancy, industrialisation, we were far behind several other states. Today, tens of thousands of Bengali youth are coming to Kerala, since in Kerala, the wages are 3 or 4 times higher than Bengal. Why has this happened?
