New Delhi: Soon after the West Bengal Budget 2020 was presented in the assembly, state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday addressed a press conference and urged the Central government to focus on the economy. She also requested the Central government to speak to the Opposition parties and take their suggestions.
“Everybody should work together to improve the economic condition if needed Prime Minister Narendra Modi should speak to the opposition parties,” CM Mamata Banerjee said during a press conference.
She said this referring to the recent comments by the RBI on the state of the economy of the country. “Whatever RBI is saying is a sensitive matter. The union government should look after the economy, instead of being busy in the politics of hatred. The prime minister should take everybody along, if needed hold discussions with opposition parties,” Banerjee said.
Making reference to CAA, NRC and NPR, the West Bengal Chief minister accused the Centre of not consulting the state before taking any decision. “The Centre nowadays does not consult states before taking any decision,” Mamata said.
The West Bengal Budget 2020 is the last full budget of the state before the crucial 2021 assembly polls. The state Budget presented today is a pro people budget keeping in mind the needs of the people, she asserted.
