Mumbai [India]: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday cautioned West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee not to become a roadblock to progressive democracy, and instead, come up with solutions to resolve existing problems.
BJP leader Shaina NC told ANI, “Earlier it used to be the AAP party, now Mamata Banerjee seems to have joined the bandwagon. I would only like to say that you should outline your concretes suggestions and concrete solutions, rather than being a roadblock to progressive democracy.”
The BJP has called on the Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo to uphold the dignity of her post and not stoop down low for political gain.
“No chief minister can make such petty statements about the Prime Minister. With regard to providing financial assistance, the West Bengal Government has received a majority of the Centre’s attention. She should uphold the dignity of her post,” BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain told ANI.
Addressing a large rally in Kolkata on Friday, Banerjee said she would protest on the roads of Delhi if the Centre and the BJP do not stop interfering in the affairs of West Bengal.
She also took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well.
“The Modi government has either stopped or slashed funds for various state government projects. He is trying to save money. What for will you save the money? You want to save the money for a coat and get a place in the Guinness Book?” she said.
Last week, Banerjee accused the NDA government of “bulldozing” the federal structure and violating the Constitution.
“It is interfering in the functioning of the state governments. We will seek the opinion of the President,” she said. (ANI)
