NEW DELHI: BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari on Thursday wrote to finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman requesting “close financial vigil and scrutiny” of the TMC-ruled West Bengal government alleging diversion and mismanagement of public funds. He said that the state government was heading towards “financial meltdown.”
“Now the fear is that the Developmental and Welfare funds meant for the people might get either unethically diverted, delayed, mismanaged and misappropriated to somehow delay the ensuing financial meltdown in the state,” the letter said.
“A very close financial vigilance and scrutiny is needed to be maintained in the public interest, so that the state government can be checked in their tracks before the misuse or squander the funds,” the letter suggested.
Calling it a “dole politics”, the state leader of opposition said, “The state is in joblessness pandemic.”
This comes in the wake of Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s directive to provide bank account details, along with the closing balance, of state government offices.
