The Trinamool Congress led by Mamata Banerjee will hit the stress across West Bengal on September 8, 14 and 20 against Modi government’s mismanagement of the Goods and Services Tax.
TMC leader and state Education Minister Partha Chatterjee said that the party will highlight the Modi government’s failure to pay GST dues to West Bengal. He said that the TMC workers and supporters will protest against the anti-people policies in every block.
“Bengal wants its dues. We cannot be neglected anymore. People want an end to the Centre’s anti-state policies. We will lend voice to people and launch a statewide campaign,” he said.
The report further says, there is huge public outrage against the Centre is on the rise and we want an end to deprivation by the BJP-ruled government,” the minister added. Another expert says, the bubble is getting busted.
The Trinamool Congress’ decision to protest against the Centre’s decision not to release the GST dues came after CM Mamata Banerjee wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, demanding that the Centre borrow money to meet the GST compensation deficit. In her four-page letter to PM Modi, the CM requested him to assist her government.
Meanwhile, the BJP has criticised the Trinamool Congress government saying that Mamata Banerjee’s party is adopting the CPM’s old strategy of painting the Centre in bad light and gaining public attention.
“But this will not reap any dividend to the TMC as people know what the real scenario is,” senior BJP leader Rahul Sinha said.
