West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not releasing funds under centrally sponsored schemes.
Mamata made the allegation while speaking at a rally to commemorate the foundation day of her party’s student wing Trinamool Chatra Parishad.
She alleged the centre was drastically reducing funds for various central schemes for the states. “Centre has stopped giving us funds.
“They owe us Rs 1,700 crore under 100 days scheme,” she said.
Mamata said the state was being forced to bear the burden of funding such projects.
“Centre wants states to provide 40-50 per cent funds for most schemes but they will name every scheme after the Prime Minister or other BJP leaders,” she said.
