Trinamool supremo and West Bengal Chief Mamata Banerjee will on Monday unveil the statue of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar’ at Vidyasagar College in Kolkata.

As per the planned schedule, West Bengal Chief Minister will pay a floral tribute to iconic personality at an event at Hare School ground. She is later slated to go to Vidyasagar college where the statue will be re-installed in CM’s presence.

As per the West Bengal Information and Cultural Department, the events are organized by the state’s Higher Education and School Education Department in collaboration with the committee for the 200th birth anniversary of Vidyasagar.

The bust of Vidyasagar was vandalized during a violent clash broke out between the members of Trinamool Congress students’ Union and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) supporters who participated in BJP Chief Amit Shah’s massive roadshow in north Kolkata on May 14.

Soon after the incident, Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a poll rally on Mya 16 promised to build a grand statue at the same place where the old stood before being vandalized in a violent clash.

However, West Bengal Chief Minister publically denied the offer stating that her state has got enough money to make the structure. Banerjee also accused BJP of vandalizing the Statue during Amit Shah’s mega roadshow in Kolkata on May 14.

Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar is often remembered for his contribution in introducing concepts of widow-remarriage in the traditional society before independence. Vidyasagar, a philosopher, writer, reformer, printer, and philanthropist was the one who spearheaded the most influential campaigns for widow-remarriage.

Before getting into social campaigns, Vidyasagar had already devoted a large part of
his life in refining the Bengali education sector. He is also credited for having to introduce a fixed routine and the concept of weekly offs.
