Controversy has arisen after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee attended the G-20 dinner. Congress forming alliance with him has raised questions. In fact, senior Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Sunday questioned Mamata Banerjee's decision to attend the dinner hosted by President Draupadi Murmu on the occasion of the G-20 meeting in New Delhi and asked whether this would strengthen her stance against the Narendra Modi government. The stance will not weaken.
Any other reason for participating...
The state Congress president also wondered whether there was any other reason for the Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo to attend the event. At the same time, TMC also retaliated. Said Banerjee is one of the key architects for the opposition alliance India to come into existence and the Congress leader does not need to lecture her about certain protocols to be followed from an administrative point of view.
Chaudhary told reporters that while many non-BJP chief ministers avoided attending the dinner, Didi (Mamata Banerjee) left for Delhi a day earlier. She was present at the event organized on this occasion along with Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. He said I wonder what prompted him to go to Delhi to attend the dinner with these leaders.
Let us tell you, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had gone to Delhi on Friday, while a dinner was organized the next day. On this Chaudhary asked if there was any other reason behind his attending this occasion?
Responding to her statement, TMC Rajya Sabha MP Shantanu Sen said everyone knows that Mamata Banerjee is one of the architects of the opposition alliance 'Indian National Development Inclusive Alliance' (India) and no one questions her commitment.
Taking on the Congress leader, Sen said Choudhary will not decide when the state chief minister will go to attend the G-20 dinner as per protocol.
BJP's West Bengal spokesperson Samik Bhattacharya said Congress and CPI(M) joining hands with the Banerjee-led party in Delhi against the BJP is a betrayal of the people of the state, victims of TMC terror.
