The centre and west Bengal government must negotiate their relations in good faith
The conflicting versions of the BJP and west Bengal chief minister Mamta banarjee regarding a meeting called by prime minister Narendra Modi to review the situation after cyclone yaas cannot be glossed over as miscommunication
BJP leaders including union minister went to great length to shows MS. Banarjee in a bad light over the meeting. They said she made the PM wait for 30 minutes at kalikaunda in paschim medinipur district in South Bengal ; , she handed over certain papers and left without attending the meeting.
In an unprecedented act, the centre unilaterally placed the West Bengal chief secretary under central deputation.
Concurrence of the official in question or the state government was sought, this can be seen only a vindictive move.
Ms. Banarjee said she was delayed for the meeting with the PM only because of air traffic regulations for landing of the PM aircraft.
