Kolkata: The Alappan Bandyopadhyay controversy is now over. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has said the government will stand with her who is not a central government.
The chapter on Alapan Bandopadhyay is now over. Banerjee told reporters that the West Bengal government will stand with Alappa Bandyopadhyay.
Bandopadhyay decided to retire on May 31st. But the state recently requested the central government to extend its tenure for three months as they have played a crucial role in the fight against the Kovid epidemic. The central government had approved the retirement four days later. But the Bengal government refused to do so, which caused a stir between the central and state governments.
The state government appointed Alappan as chief adviser to the state government amid a tussle between the central and Mamata Banerjee government. Thus, the Union Home Ministry issued a showcause notice of imprisonment for two years under the strict provisions of the Disaster Management Act.
Bundiopadhyay, who is not worried about this, has already started working as chief counsel. Mamata Banerjee was present at the State Irrigation Department’s Wednesday meeting.
