New Delhi [India], Aug. 27 (ANI): Asserting that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre fully supported all states, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday called on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to stop complaining against the Centre and focus on fulfilling her responsibilities towards her people. BJP leader Shrikant Sharma told ANI that Mamata Banerjee had begun to speak the language of her Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal in hitting out against the Centre. "She is running away from the responsibilities bestowed upon her by the people of West Bengal. She should focus on her work and refrain from putting false allegations on the Centre. This is a government that fully supports states," Sharma said. He further stated that Mamata Banerjee needs to takes steps to prevent rampant corruption in her state and try and control the bullying ways of her Trinamool Congress (TMC) party workers. Addressing a large rally in Kolkata on Friday, Mamata said she would protest on the roads of Delhi if the Centre and the BJP do not stop interfering in the affairs of West Bengal. She also took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well saying, "the Modi government has either stopped or slashed funds for various state government projects. He is trying to save money. What for will you save the money? You want to save the money for a coat and get a place in the Guinness Book?" Last week, Banerjee accused the NDA government of "bulldozing" the federal structure and violating the Constitution. "It is interfering in the functioning of the state governments. We will seek the opinion of the President," she said. (ANI)
