According to Mamata Banerjee, the state has not yet been paid “outstanding dues under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.”
Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, said that she will stage a two-day sit-in protest in Delhi on March 29 and 30, in response to the BJP-led Centre’s “discrimination” against the state.
The state, she said, received nothing in this year’s Union Budget, which was delivered by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on February 1. She also claimed that the state has not yet received “outstanding dues under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana” and that the budget was not fair to the state.
Banerjee stated to journalists on Monday, “In opposition to the Center’s animus towards Bengal, I will conduct a sit-in movement beginning on March 29 and continuing until the evening of March 30.
we all took part in the 100 days guarantee Act’s program we all did well weren’t our legal central dues. Our outstanding invoices from Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana have still not arrived. We built 12,000 km additional of rural roads using funds from our own exchequer. We’ve received praise for our achievements all throughout the world. Our due compensation has not yet been paid. The CM stated that the Union budget for this year does not include any funding for state government spending.
The CM also criticized the government over the removal of Mehul Choksi’s name from Interpol’s Red Corner Notice List and claimed that Mehul Choksi and billionaire industrialist Gautam Adani are close with those in power and that the saffron party only represents those few individuals, according to ANI.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and India’s efforts to capture the wanted jeweler Mehul Choksi were severely hampered when Interpol retracted the Red Corner Notice (RCN) it had previously issued. The main defendant in the Rs 13,500 crore Punjab National Bank loan fraud case is Choksi, who left India in 2018.
RCN is used to identify and temporarily detain fugitives, and it is sent to law enforcement agencies worldwide. This is done in anticipation of extradition, surrender, or other legal action.
