Kolkata, May 20 (PTI) Two flower-bedecked tableaux, showcasing achievements of Mamata Banerjee government, were today flagged off from state secretariat Nabanna to spread the message of unity and amity on the sixth anniversary of Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal.

West Bengal Finance Minister Amit Mitra and Education minister Partha Chatterjee flagged of the two tableux which were taken out spreading the message ‘Ekotai Sampreeti’ (unity is amity).

Baul singers strummed folk songs in the Nabanna compound and ‘Dhakis’ (traditional drummers of Bengal) drummed up beats in the presence of ministers and other dignitaries.

The two vehicle-turned-tableux carried campaigns about popular schemes of the government namely ‘Kanyashree’, ‘Khadya Sathi’, ‘Sabuj Sathi’, ‘Somobyathi’ and others.

The tableaux will be travelling around the districts till June 20 spreading the message of integrity.

In similar programmes, two pairs of tableaux started from the offices of each District Magistrate today with five folk artistes performing atop each.

The popular folk form of different districts – such as Adivasi Dance, Gambhira, Rainbese, Chou dance – will be performed as the tableux will visit different parts, an Information and Cultural Affairs department release said.
