West Bengal C.M Mamta Banerjee lays foundation stone of new campus of St. Xavier's College,Kolkata

"I am 'a member of the Xaverian family'. My government's allotment of 16.65 acres of land to St. Xavier's is an investment in the promise of quality education. It is our intention with a vision for tomorrow. St. Xavier’s College is a name and it will be a university tomorrow and gain fame not only in Bengal but the world. Even today many of our students leave for Hyderabad or Bangalore for training. But there will come a day when everyone will come to Calcutta and West Bengal for education. And St. Xavier’s should show the way. I would contribute to the college from the proceeds of my paintings. I request the college authorities to set up a medical college too. This is the age of expansion, equity and excellence. Let me know about anything that I can do for you, I will always be by your side".
