WEST BENGAL: AN UNCHECKED DECLINE Left Front Government: (1977-2011); All India Trinamul Congress: (2011- …)  1977(June 21) : 1st cabinet meeting decides to release the political prisoners.  1977(Sep 29) : West Bengal Land Bill; massive land reforms.  1978 : State Cabinet reduces voting age from 21 to 18 years.  1980 : Full trade union rights to the state Govt. employees.  1981 : Collaboration of parties such as CPI, DSP and WBSP.  1984-1985 : Metro rail flagged off  Left gains the Municipality.  1986-2000 : Landslide victory for the Left front in assembly and formation of WB State Human Right Commission.  2006-2007 : Land acquisition problems in Singur and Nandigram.

B.. C.. D..  Class VI.  Degree college enrollment ratio’s (1996-2006) Can the situation be recovered?? “Alas! The hopeless and helpless people of West Bengal will continue to suffer. Even the intention of troubleshooting is hardly put on display.”
  • 12. CONCLUSIONS  Multilingualism will not cause the degeneration of the mother tongue in this society.  The female gender is more inclined towards study of languages.  The distribution of motivating factors, behind the thirst for languages, is almost identical in public and private institutions and commercial value is the primary source for the same.  Lack of proficiency of languages create barriers to economic prospects.
  • 13. RECOMMENDATIONS  There is merely any help from the government towards the upliftment of language proficiency.  The state needs to intervene with some policy to promote language studies from a very early age.  West Bengal, a state known for its affection towards culture and its outstanding theater, has seen a steep down fall in this area.  Publications of multiple languages are required to create the taste towards those languages.
