West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee
Affirming that Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's interest of ₹20,000-crore for cyclone alleviation was "unrealistic", state BJP president Dilip Ghosh on Sunday said she skirted the audit meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to try not to give an itemized record of the cases that she has made.
Ghosh additionally brought up that the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), which assembled the survey conference on Friday, is qualified to settle on the rundown of invitees.
"Odisha faced the brunt of the cyclone while Bengal was largely spared, but she is asking for ₹20,000 crores. She did not attend the review meeting with the Prime Minister at Kalaikunda as she did not want to elaborate on this unrealistic demand," Ghosh said.
The CM had on Friday said that she, in an isolated proposition submitted to Prime Minister Modi, looked for ₹10,000 crores each for modifying the ocean side vacationer town of Digha and the attacked portions of the Sundarbans area.
Banerjee, in any case, skirted an audit meeting on twister demolition with Modi, looking to know why resistance BJP pioneers were available at the meeting.
Ghosh further claimed that the presence of Suvendu Adhikari, the head of resistance in the Assembly, was another explanation that provoked Banerjee to skirt the gathering.
"Adhikari will be attending assembly sessions, too. Will Banerjee stop going to the House? Instead of politicizing the calamity, she should work with everyone for the welfare of people," Ghosh said, in a dig at the TMC supremo.
