President's Message

Congress in Bengal has come a long way. The history demonstrates the resilience of the Party. It is rather a history of people of Bengal – not the history of power politics of Bengal. Today we are away from the seat of power for 36 long years – and we are still the versatile force with unending energy of Bengal – for Bengal and with Bengal.

Bongiyo Pradeshic (Provintial) Congress was established in 1888 – three years after the birth of Indian National Congress. On the other hand Trinamul Congress, the present ruling party of Bengal is an opportunistic off-shoot of Congress with a history of only one and a half decade. Whereas Congress has history and tradition in its side, TMC has political maneuvering and dictatorial operation on their side. Whereas Congress has continuity of democratic credence on its side, TMC has the unviable autocracy on their side. Whereas Congress loves people more than power, TMC cannot survive without power.

36 years is long time that we are away from the seat of power. We have suffered most during the long history of freedom struggle. We have suffered most during the "34 long years of misrule" of CPM regime. And we are still ready to sacrifice most to drive out the present autocratic, barbaric, and corrupt regime of Trinamul Congress.

Friends & Followers; struggle for new independence has started. Our forefathers, the great leaders, have brought freedom to our great nation. Now our oath to them and pledges to the people are: We will give blood to stop bloodshed in Bengal; We will oppose autocracy to establish true democracy; We will drive out the party hegemony from every corner of Bengal and replace it with peace and prosperity for everybody. Jaihind

President WBPCC appeals to all party functionaries to use and popularise the website and also to contribute regularly with information on party programmes.

এ রাজ্যের বাতাসে বিষ বাষ্প ছড়িয়ে পড়েছে 24th October

"এ রাজ্যের বাতাসে বিষ বাষ্প ছড়িয়ে পড়েছে। পুলিশ প্রশাসন থেকে সরকারের অপদার্থতার জন্যই আজ রাজ্য জুড়ে দৈন্য, হতাশা ছড়িয়ে পড়েছে। চরম অনিশ্চয়তার পথে আমরা চলেছি। বাজার অগ্নিমূল্য, অপরাধীর বিচার হয় না। পুলিশ তৃনমূলের দলের হয়ে গিয়েছে, নিরপেক্ষতা বলে কিছু নেই। শিল্প-কারখানা মুখ থুবড়ে পড়েছে। বেকারের চাকরি নেই। চাষির ঘরে খাবার নেই। শিক্ষায় চরম নৈরাজ্য এবং সন্ত্রাসের বাতাবরণ তৈরি হয়েছে। নতুন কোনও শিল্প নেই।" শ্রী অধীর চৌধুরী

WBPCC Demands Investigation into TMC Complicity in Burdwan blasts

Led by PCC President Adhir Chowdhury, Congress workers from across Bengal gathered at Mandirtala, Howrah. They marched to the state secretariat Nabanna to present a memorandum demanding a thorough investigation into the blasts at Khagragarh, while at the same time protesting the communal fault lines sought to be created by the Trinamool and BJP via this incident.

While the district Police initially stopped the peaceful procession from proceeding to Nabanna to meet the Chief Secretary, Shri Chowdhury did not relent and refused to budge unless the delegation of 4 Congress MLAs were allowed to meet the state administration. Bowing to the will of the people, the delegation was finally escorted to the Home Secretary where the memorandum was delivered.

A woman voter was killed when bombs were hurled by miscreants as she was leaving a booth at Kajisha village in Beldanga area in Murshidabad district after casting her vote, police sources said.

Murder of Youth Congress Leader in Hoogly District.
13th February, 2014

Abhijit Rahman, President of Hoogly Loksabha Youth Congress Committee was beaten to death today in a horrific and barbaric manner by the local Trinamul Congress goons in open daylight at Mogra P.S., Hoogly, West Bengal.


10th February, 2014

Indian National Congress has appointed Shri Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury as the President of West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee.

In a significant move before the ensuing Loksabha election, the appointment of Shri Chowdhury as the supremo of WBPCC will definitely enthuse the morale of the Congress workers in the State. An uncompromising fighter and an able mass leader Shri Chowdhury will lead from the front to acquire the rightful place of Congress in the State.

Bengal has already rusticated the CPM regime from power, and common people have become disgusted with the misrule and tyranny of Trinamul regime. Now Congress is the only viable alternative. Recent return of another mass leader Shri Somen Mitra to Congress and the event of Shri Adhir Chowdhury becoming the President of WBPCC - both the event will strengthen the Congress organization in the State and fulfill the aspirations of common people of Bengal.

Outgoing President Prof. Pradip Bhattacharya, MP, who has steered the Party with able hand during a very crucial period, has welcomed Shri Chowdhury and said "this change will stimulate the entire Congress organization in the State".

It is a day of shame for West Bengal! 07 February, 2014

The notorious political horse trading has spread its far reaching tentacles in the State where such political malpractices never happened in the past.
Thanks to the insidious game plan of Trinamul Congress regime.

Today in the Rajya Sabha Election 2014 West Bengal legislative house has witnessed the unprecedented horse trading and political manipulations which have paved the way of victory of the fourth TMC candidate. Trinamul Congress may have won one extra seat, but in the process it has certainly polluted the political history of the State beyond redemption.

Indian politics has witnessed many such instances of horse trading in various states like Bihar, UP, Jharkhand or Orissa. But the political fraternity of Bengal carefully safeguarded itself from such virus. The West Bengal citizens used to feel pride in their high moral ground. Today TMC has successfully put the final nail in the coffin of the pride of Bengalis.

27th January, 2014 Bengal TET Scam

Another unprecedented scam has broke out in West Bengal.

On 31st March 2013 people of Bengal were "April fooled" in advance by the Ma-Mati-Manus Government – as chaos prevailed on the primary teachers eligibility test (TET), with over 43 lakh examines struggling to reach the examination centers. While hundreds of candidates could not reach the centers – and problems were multiplied as several centers were changed at the eleventh hour. Over a dozen young examines were injured when travelling in overcrowded trains and buses. Education minister Bratya Basu said he will look in to the matter – his standard quip after any education related problem. But woes of examines continued.

Congress Vice President, Shri Rahul Gandhi, met women representatives from all the corners of the country in Bhopal and sought their opinion and inputs for strengthening the cause of women folk in India.While interacting with them,
he said: "Women must be as empowered as men in every single household. We will not let go of the fight for women's cause and their rightful reservation".He said unless social, economic and political empowerment of women is achieved, and unless women are respected and secured, India cannot be a super power.

Ironically, his speech coincides with the gruesome rape of a working lady at Wattganj of Kolkata. The 1st woman Chief Minister of Bengal did not spent a word of concern about her.
