Barely a next day of the 2 parties entered swords on retail FDI in Parliament, Union rural development minister Jairam Ramesh on Saturday gave the phone call in Lalgarh for causing another ‘poribartan’ in Bengal, which makes it obvious that any chance of a rapprochement between Congress and Trinamool Congress is far.
Going for a search at Trinamool for calling UPA-II a “minority government”, Ramesh reminded Mamata’s party it’s exactly the same government which has approved 55,000km road construction for those three districts of Jangalmahal – West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia – in a year. Government authorities haven’t had the opportunity to complement this within the last 12 years, he stated in a public meeting within the one-time Maoist stronghold. Also, the Center has launched Rs 2,700 crore for Bengal to date for obligations to land labourers underneath the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, he stated.
Ramesh held that Trinamool might have the ‘josh’ (rabble rousing) needed in street politics but lacks the ‘hosh’ (brain) to operate a government. “We’ll achieve to the folks and attract these to give an opportunity to Congress this time around whether they have seen the CPM and Trinamool,” he stated.
Mentioning to his meeting at Lalgarh some several weeks ago, he remarked, “I’d stated then the Congress hasn’t taken political VRS in Bengal. Today, I’d state that the Congress has a brand new lease of existence after Trinamool left us.”
To get rid of “middle men” – a mention of the condition government and panchayats – the Center will transfer funds for student scholarship, widow pension and old-age pension towards the beneficiaries’ bank or publish office accounts from the month of January the coming year, he stated.
Ramesh’s Bengal co-workers – Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and Deepa Das Munshi – went ballistic from the Mamata government. Adhir referred to the Trinamool administration as “old wine inside a new bottle” which has only “decentralised corruption”.
