Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday slammed Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for arriving late at a cyclone review meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and called her conduct an "insult" to the people of West Bengal.
While speaking to ANI, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said, "PM Modi ji is the Prime Minister of India. The entire country follows him. He went to West Bengal for the welfare of people, to know the wellbeing of people affected by the cyclone there. Mamata didi's conduct is an insult to the people of Bengal."
Yesterday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a review meeting at Kalaikunda in Paschim Medinipur district in West Bengal to take stock of the post cyclonic situation. Mamata Banerjee was supposed to attend the meeting.
However, she arrived late by 30 minutes and handed him over reports of damage caused by the impact of Cyclone Yaas. Following this, she left for her pre-scheduled meeting at Digha.
On Friday, Chouhan had chaired a meeting along with other ministers and officials to discuss the procedure to initiate Unlock-1 in the state, in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
