The Modi government has issued a notice to Alapan Bandyopadhyay, advisor and former chief secretary to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Notice has been issued to Alapan Bandyopadhyay due to delay in meeting held in Kalaikunda regarding Cyclone Yas and not being present full time. Bandyopadhyay has been asked to reply within three days.
Former Chief Secretary Alapan Bandyopadhyay has been issued a notice under the Disaster Management Act by the Central Government. In the notice, he has been asked the reason for not being present in the meeting with the Prime Minister and he has been asked to reply within three days. However, Alapan Bandyopadhyay retired on Monday itself. After retiring, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee appointed him her chief advisor.
The Center has asked the Chief Secretary to issue a notice that Alapan Bandyopadhyay had already been asked whether he would attend the meeting or not. Later Alapan reached inside the meeting room with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee but left the meeting immediately. The relationship between the Central Government and the West Bengal Government has become quite bitter over this meeting dispute held in Kalaikunda on Friday. The former chief secretary was ordered to be summoned to Delhi for not attending the meeting, but Mamta Banerjee refused to relieve him.
Mamta had also written a letter to Prime Minister Modi regarding the summoning of Alapan to Delhi. In this letter, Mamta Banerjee had said that this order of the Center is one-sided and is a violation of the service rules of the officers. There was no talk before the state government regarding this. Along with this, the order calling to Delhi was also asked to be canceled. But the turning point in this development came when Alapan Bandyopadhyay retired from the post of Chief Secretary on Monday itself. After retiring, Mamta Banerjee appointed him as her chief advisor, citing the Corona epidemic. Mamta said that Alapan has done a wonderful job during the Corona epidemic, so he will continue to serve the people of Bengal even further.
On Tuesday, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar called Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee arrogant in the meeting controversy and said that she has given a false reason for not attending the meeting. Jagdeep Dhankhar tweeted that on May 27, he had indicated that he and his officials would not attend the meeting with Prime Minister Modi. His arrogance over the service of the public has become dominant.
Let us inform that Mamta Banerjee had said that she had reached the meeting late due to the delay in landing of the helicopter and she was allowed to attend the meeting very late. At the same time, he had said that the first meeting to review the storm was to be held only between the Chief Minister and the Prime Minister. But later the Governor, Union Ministers and Leader of the Opposition Shubhendu Adhikari were also included in this meeting. Therefore, he did not participate in this meeting.
