This came after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee blamed central government for adding woes during the lockdown.
“Migrant workers are facing problems because of the sudden lockdown announcement made by the Centre without keeping the states in the loop. I had earlier told Union Home Minister Amit Shah that if his government feels that we cannot handle the COVID-19 crisis, why don’t they (Centre) handle it on their own? This is not the time for doing politics. Where will we keep these migrant labourers for institutional quarantine? Who will take the responsibility if number of COVID-19 cases increases? Bengal is facing a very tough situation due to COVID-19 and Amphan. We need time and space to tackle it. I request the prime minister and the Union home minister to look into the matter to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the state,” she had said.
Reacting to Banerjee’s statement, Shah said, “I cannot run Bengal because I am a ‘sansad’ (MP). But I would like to assure that her wishes will be fulfilled as BJP is certainly going to form the government in Bengal with full majority. The law and order situation has collapsed completely in Bengal and we will fulfil her wish by forming the next government there.”
