Kolkata, February 8: Opposition parties in West Bengal on Sunday slammed Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for “undermining” and “jeopardising” the welfare of the state by skipping the first meeting of NITI Aayog chaired by Prime Minister rendra Modi. The Congress, the Bharatiya Jata Party (BJP) and the Communist Party of India–Marxist (CPI–M) all have criticised Banerjee’s “rrow minded” politics. “Under the federal structure, states will have to go to the Centre and cooperate to get their due. It’s her dichotomy that on the one hand, she whines about neglect by the Centre and, on the other, refuses to cooperate with it,” Congress state unit president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said. “The chief minister’s dictatorial attitude and rrow mindedness is harming Bengal. Much like the Left Front, the Trimool’s dogmatic politics is making Bengal pay. “The Congress too has numerous grievances against the Centre and we are fighting for them but that does not mean we will not participate in anything where the Centre is involved,” added Chowdhury. BJP state unit president Rahul Sinha said Banerjee’s stubbornness was only harming West Bengal. (IANS)
