Government’s 9-Point Rejoinder To Mamata On PM Meet
Government’s 9-Point Rejoinder Mamata On PM Meet and Mamata Banerjee has given “totally bogus articulations” and she “boycotted” a gathering with Narendra Modi subsequent to consenting to go to it, the middle said today in its second counter in its undeniably severe to and fro with the Bengal Chief Minister.
In a nine-point reply, government sources attacked Mamata Banerjee’s record of what went down on Friday, when she momentarily met with PM Modi at Kalaikunda air base during his visit to Bengal and left without going to his Cyclone Yaas audit meeting.
The Chief Minister has said she had another planned gathering and that she had asked the PM’s consent prior to leaving.
PM Modi never allowed to Mamata Banerjee to leave the survey meeting as she guarantees, government sources said today.
To her case about being educated behind schedule about the Prime Minister’s timetable, the sources remarked that a gathering to survey tornado harm could scarcely be concluded “before the typhoon comes”.
Ms Banerjee’s claim that she had to sit tight for the PM was likewise dismissed by government sources. On Ms Banerjee saying she needed to sit tight for 20 minutes and her chopper needed to float on the grounds that the PM’s chopper was to land, the sources said she ought to have come ahead of time, “as everybody does when PM should land at any air terminal”.
“PM arrived at Kalaikunda at 1.59 pm. Mamata Banerjee arrived at Kalaikunda after the PM at 2.10 pm. Plainly PM was continued sitting tight for Mamata Banerjee as he landed much before her. This was additionally affirmed by a TMC MP who tweeted that there was no biggie in the PM being continued pausing,” said government sources.
After her chopper arrived at the air base, the Chief Minister arrived at the structure where the gathering was to occur, around 500 meters away. “In the wake of meeting the PM, she left for her next venture at 2.35 pm. So as a result, she made a trip 500 meters forward and backward, met PM and withdrew in a short time. She left before the PM left, which is obviously in opposition to acknowledged practices and convention. Unmistakably Mamata Banerjee’s assertion of being made to stand by is altogether bogus and that she made the PM pause,” government sources said.
The sources additionally said Mamata Banerjee had consented to go to the PM’s survey yet had adjusted her perspective subsequent to discovering that her previous assistant turned-BJP MLA Suvendu Adhikari, who is the state’s Leader of Opposition, would be in the gathering. Suvendu Adhikari’s absconding to the BJP, only months before the Bengal surveys, was viewed as an enormous misfortune for Ms Banerjee. Her avalanche triumph in surveys was likewise diminished by her loss to Mr Adhikari in Nandigram, which implies she needs to win bypolls to keep the top work.
“Mamata Banerjee decided to blacklist the survey meeting in light of the fact that the Leader of Opposition of WB was available. No issue was made by government on this, since what made a difference was Cyclone help exercises. It was recommended to her that PM will meet her following the audit meeting as that was the justification which he went to West Bengal. Detecting that she may need to stand by till the audit meeting gets over, she decided to forestall different officials too from going to the gathering and in actuality dropped the survey meeting planned by the Prime Minister,” the sources affirmed.
The Center additionally safeguarded its moves against Alapan Bandyopadhyay, at that point Chief Secretary of Bengal, who was requested to answer to Delhi after the gathering contention. Ms Banerjee called the review request unlawful and affirmed that the Center was acting like “Hitler and Stalin”.
“The request is totally protected since Chief Secretary is an All India Services official. He decided to overlook his protected obligations, because of which no show was given to PM and no official of the West Bengal government went to the PM’s audit meeting,” sources said.
Mr Bandyopadhyay, rather than going to Delhi, resigned yesterday and was promptly selected Chief Adviser to the Chief Minister.
Government sources said his retirement showed that Mamata Banerjee was on the backfoot. “She realizes that realities of the matter are against the Chief Secretary and his conduct was to such an extent that it will welcome severe disciplinary activity… All India officials are not expected to be important for governmental issues. Mamata realizes this and his retirement is a last offered to save him,” they said.
Ms Banerjee’s issue with Mr Adhikari’s quality was additionally excused by the Center, which said, “There have been various gatherings in the past in non-BJP managed states where agents of different gatherings have been available”.
