Mamata Banerjee: Modi Government has done nothing to help West Bengal

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday reacted to PM Modi's address to farmers after releasing an installment of PM KISAN scheme.

Today, PM showed apparent concern for farmers through televised address, instead of proactively working to resolve their issues. While he publicly claimed his intention to help farmers of West Bengal through his PM Kisan Yojana...fact is he's trying to mislead people with half-truth, said Banerjee.

The fact is that Modi Government has done nothing to help West Bengal. They are yet to release even a portion of the Rs 85,000 cr of outstanding dues that includes unpaid GST dues of Rs 8,000 cr, she added. 

Earlier today, addressing farmers after releasing an installment of PM KISAN scheme, the Prime Minister Modi had said that Banerjee's ideology has destroyed West Bengal and questioned the silence of Opposition for her decision to not implement the scheme in the state that is in the interest of farmers.

"In West Bengal as per our estimates, there are 70 lakh farmers who are eligible for PM Kisan Samman Nidhi. These people if join the scheme, West Bengal will get Rs 4,200 crore in a year. For now, farmers of West Bengal are devoid of this benefit and that is why I have written to the CM Mamata Banerjee before and yesterday as well to join the scheme," he added.
