Mamata seeks Modi’s Date on ‘Debt’ issue


Kolkata: Ahead of the Union General Budget for the year 2015-16, West Bengal Chief minister Mamata Banerjee persuades the Central Government for an waiver in the huge burden of debt on West Bengal government.

In a letter to Prime minister Mamata Banerjee, she has stated that the state needs immediate relief from the debt burden so that growth and development efforts continue unhindered.

In her social networking page, the WB CM blamed the previous Left Front Government and said, “The deduction of about 28,000 crore every year towards the debt taken by the previous government has been increasing.”

She has sought an appointment to meet the Prime Minister along with a delegation of the TMC MPs to discuss the issue.

Although the Central government had repeatedly assured the State Governments of all support, Didi has always turned her face away from Modi. Now, she is keen on visiting her arch rival ahead of the Union Budget to bring in some relief for Bengal. BJP, which is aiming at the VidhanSabha polls next year, how far helps her out, is now a matter of question.
