Controversy over the late arrival and early exit of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in the meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the damage caused by cyclonic Yaas in West Bengal has deepened. Amid criticism from the BJP, Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra has taken a strong dig at PM Modi.
Mahua Moitra tweeted on the episode saying, “So much fuss over an alleged 30 min wait? Indians waiting 7 years for ₹15 lakhs Waiting hours at ATM queues Waiting months for vaccines due Thoda aap bhi wait kar lijiye kabhi kabhi…“
Mahua Moitra digs at PM
In fact, Mahua Moitra took a dig at the promise of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister candidate during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections in which he talked about bringing black money from abroad and sending 15 lakh rupees to every Indian’s account. Along with this, after the decision of demonetisation in 2016, he mentioned the public standing in line outside ATMs and banks for depositing and withdrawing money.
Congress tightened on the transfer of the Chief Secretary of Bengal
West Bengal Chief Secretary Alapan Bandopadhyay has been called by the Center to Delhi. His tenure as Chief Secretary had ended, but four days earlier, the Mamata government had extended his tenure by three months. Alapan Bandopadhyay is considered close to Mamata Banerjee. Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi attacked the Modi govt on this.
What is this whole matter?
Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a review meeting on Friday at Kalai Kunda in West Medinipur to review the damage caused by Cyclone Yaas. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Chief Secretary arrived at the review meeting 30 minutes late while they were on the same premises. After coming to the meeting, Mamata Banerjee handed over documents related to the impact of the cyclone and left the meeting, saying that she had to attend other meetings.
