Mamata's theatrics at the PM meeting for Cyclone draws widespread criticisms

New Delhi: BJP chief J P Nadda on Friday said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee skipping the meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on cycle Yaas was "murder of constitutional ethos". The state governor Jagdeep Dhankar flayed the conduct of the Chief Minister and the state officials while Leader of the Opposition in the state assembly, Suvendu Adhikari, termed it "a dark day". "When Hon PM Shri @narendramodi stands strong with the citizens of West Bengal in wake of cyclone Yaas, Mamata ji should also set aside her ego for the welfare of people," Nadda tweeted. "Her absence from the PM’s meeting is murder of constitutional ethos and the culture of cooperative federalism," he wrote. In another missive in the micro blogging site, the BJP chief further wrote: "PM @narendramodi ji holds the principle of Cooperative federalism very sacred & has been actively working with all CMs irrespective of party to give relief to the people. Unsurprisingly @MamataOfficial (Mamata Banerjee)'s tactics and petty politics has once again come to haunt the people of Bengal". Suvendu Adhikari, Leader of the opposition in state assembly, in his tweet shared photographs of PM with other opposition leaders like Omar Abdullah and Jayalalitha and wrote: "On previous occasions, PM @narendramodi has reviewed floods, cyclone situations with different CMs who belonged to non-NDA parties. None of these CMs behaved the way Mamata Didi behaved today. There is a time for politics and a time for governance. Didi can’t comprehend that". In another missive Adhikari wrote: "Today is a dark day in India’s long-standing ethos of cooperative federalism, a principle held sacred by PM @narendramodi. CM Mamata Banerjee has shown once again that she is insensitive to the sufferings of the people of West Bengal". In his tweet, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh wrote in Hindi: "Such behaviour meted out to a Prime Minister who goes to extend aid to the state during a natural calamity is painful". Ms Banerjee skipped the meeting chaired by PM Modi for reviewing the damage caused by Cyclone Yaas. The state Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar in his missive said by such conduct "neither public interest nor interest of state has been served". "At the Review Meet by PM #CycloneYaas to assess damage caused. CM and officials @MamataOfficial did not participate. Such boycott bot in consonance with constitution and federalism. Certainly by such actions neither public interest nor interest of state has been served".
