So, a contradictory statement on her part. She did not even utter a single word about this employment cricis. Mamata Banerjee promised to remove corruption. But how will she remove corruption if her own party has taken away the public’s money for Sarada and allegedly took bribe in the Narada scam.
Rahul Gandhi directly attacked Mamata Banerjee and her government on Saturday. He informed that those injured or kins of dead people in the collapse of the Vivekananda Flyover, told him that the flyover collapsed because of the use of poor quality cement and poor maintenance of it.
