Kolkata, Dec 7 – West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee clarified on Wednesday that she had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi thrice to discuss the MGNREGA issue. Reacting to Union Rural Development Minister Giriraj Singh’s statement in Parliament, where he said, “Let Mamataji meet the Prime Minister,” Banerjee responded by stating, “I have met the Prime Minister thrice to discuss the MGNREGA issue.”

She emphasized the ongoing fight for the rights of Bengal’s MGNREGA workers and asserted that the call to ‘Delhi Cholo’ will persist until justice is served. Banerjee criticized the lack of action against Uttar Pradesh, which has the highest number of fake job cards, highlighting the BJP’s alleged misuse of power.

“The fight for Bengal’s MGNREGA workers persists with unwavering commitment and resolve,” she asserted. “The rallying cry ‘Delhi Cholo’ echoes through Bengal and will persist until JUSTICE is served,” she maintained. “Uttar Pradesh has the highest number of fake job cards, yet no action was taken against them by the Ministry of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj,” Banerjee stated. “No action being taken against UP on having the highest number of fake job cards proves BJP’s misuse of power by targeting Bengal and its people while BJP-ruled states enjoy their unrestrained flow of funds,” the Chief Minister commented.
