Mamata Banerjee to protest in Delhi over pending Central dues to Bengal


West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will stage a two-day sit-in demonstration in Delhi this month to protest against the pending Central dues to her state.

Addressing reporters at the Kolkata airport before departing for Bhubaneswar, Banerjee said that she will stage the sit-in on March 29-30.

“Despite doing excellent work in the 100-day job scheme under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, we have been denied our Central dues on this count. We are yet to receive our pending dues under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

“We have spent money from our own exchequer in setting up 12,000 km of additional rural roads. We have received international accolades for our successes. But still, we have been denied our legitimate dues,” the Chief Minister said.

She went on to say that the demonstration will start at 12 noon at the base of the statue of B.R. Ambedkar and will continue till 7 p.m. on March 30.
