KOLKATA: Trinamool Congress has launched a counter-campaign against the BJP, arguing that West Bengal Prime Minister Awas Yojana’s dues should not be given because the state government is running the same program under a name different.
Trinamool’s counter-strategy will be to draw attention to other Indian states that have used the same way to carry out the plan under other names and clear debts.
On May 12, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requesting that state contributions for the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) and Prime Minister Awas Yojana be released immediately.
Suvendu Adhikari, the Leader of the Opposition in West Bengal Assembly, wrote to the Prime Minister soon after, stating that while 32 lakh residences had been built in West Bengal under Prime Minister Awas Yojana, the project was in progress. actually run by the state government under the name Bangla Awas Yojana. He insisted that no central money be granted for this housing plan unless the state government operates it under the name of Prime Minister Awas Yojona.
The Trinamool Congress leadership chose to highlight the incidents with photographic records where states like Uttar Pradesh and Delhi are also implementing the scheme under other names but have not been denied dues.
