Kolkata: A day before West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s visit to New Delhi, state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh claimed that Mamata is going to beg for money from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“Due to several scams and corruption, the West Bengal government has run out of funds for which the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is running to Delhi to seek funds from the Prime Minister,” claimed Ghosh.
Slamming the BJP chief, Trinamool Congress spokesperson and state general secretary Kunal Ghosh said that Dilip Ghosh doesn’t know the federal structure.
“The BJP-led central government is yet to give the state the GST payments and fund for disaster management and also for other schemes. Even if the BJP chief’s claim is true then Mamata Banerjee will ask for the legitimate due payments,” said Kunal.
Meanwhile, amid the slugfest over vaccination between the ruling Trinamool Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party, Dilip Ghosh on Sunday once again stated that the TMC government didn’t make proper infrastructure in the state to distribute the vaccine.
“In July the central government had sent over 90 lakh vaccines but the TMC ministers are still crying foul against the saffron camp just to hide their failure in making proper infrastructure for distributing the vaccines,” claimed Ghosh.
Incidentally, long lines were seen at different hospitals and despite several pleas people were denied vaccination.
Incidentally, West Bengal Transport Minister Firhad Hakim on Saturday said that the vaccination drive will be stalled for a few days as the Central government didn’t send an adequate number of vaccines.
