Venting out her anger a day after the row over her skipping Cyclone Yaas review meet, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said that if the prime minister asks her to touch his feet for the welfare of the people of her state, she’s ready to do that but she “should not be insulted".
Mamata expressed her disappointment over inviting BJP leaders and governor to the meeting, when it was a “PM-CM interaction".
“PMO humiliated me, and posted tweets to tarnish my image. Why were BJP leaders, governor called to cyclone review meeting when it was meant to be between PM and CM. I felt insulted," she said.
She also requested Modi to withdraw the order the recalled chief secretary Alapan Bandopadhyay, and asked him to allow the bureaucrat to word for COVID-infected people and areas in Bengal.
The tussle began when the Prime Minister flew down to Odisha on Friday to review the post-cyclone situation, and then made his way to West Bengal, where the Cyclone Yaas wreaked havoc in the coastal districts.
