Addressing a rally in East Midnapore, Mr Ghosh mentioned Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has introduced schemes with massive names however they have not catered to the wants of individuals.
“There are so many shrees, so many sathis… we are losing count of them. But how many people are getting real benefits? Under the Sabujsathi scheme, defective bicycles were distributed, while the Swasthya Sathi is a non-starter. Same with all other projects,” the Midnapore MP claimed.
Mr Ghosh mentioned that the state, after failing to utilise central grants of over Rs 2,000 crore for Cyclone Amphan reduction, is now writing to the Union authorities for allocation of Rs 8,500 crore, however “no one trusts Didi (Mamata Banerjee) anymore.”
“None trusts Didi will use the amount judiciously. Everyone has seen how Amphan relief money went into the account of local leaders from her party, from panchayat pradhan to other chieftains. And once the matter came to public knowledge, Didi said it was an exception, a mistake. Is it really a mistake! We know that after May 2021 such mistakes won’t recur anymore.” Mr Ghosh mentioned.
