New Delhi [India], Jan. 7 (ANI): The Centre has rebuked West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her remark asking President Pranab Mukherjee to oust the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government, in the wake of his decision to demonetise 500 and 1000 rupee notes. "A Prime Minister is elected by the people, he is not randomly chosen. Just because she is commenting, one must not take it seriously. Mamata shouldn't have said like this," Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiu told ANI. Mamata yesterday asked the ruling dispensation to make way for a "national government" headed by senior BJP leader L.K. Advani or Finance Minister Arun Jaitley or Home Minister Rajnath Singh. "Hallabazi is going on by this government. I appeal to the President to save us as no government can bulldoze on people like this. I want a new government to be set up to save the country from this situation for two and half years," she said. Mamata then went on to ask President Pranab Mukherjee for help and said that it is only he, who can save the country. (ANI)
