Congress,on the other-hand has had as many lunches and dinners as possible with Mayawati and Mulayam Singh Yadav,chiefs of BSP and SP parties,respectively,to make sure the calculation of retaining the govt in power does not fall short, at any cost ! 😀
This time it is Union Minister of Rural Development,Jairam Ramesh,who has pissed off Mamata Banerjee,the Bengal Chief Minister. In one of her interviews,in the recent past, she had referred the Central Govt as ‘brain-dead’ and using the same as a sarcastic weapon,Jairam,while addressing an official letter to her.
Didi was irked to the level that she shared the letter on her facebook account terming the sarcastic statement as unconstitutional.
Mamata Banerjee has successfully managed to shaken the UPA govt and her demand for 24 subsidized LPG cylinders per annum , has forced the central govt to increase the number to 9 per year which may again be revised to a bigger figure.
FDI in retail has been strongly opposed by TMC Supremo Mamata Banerjee, to an extent that she has almost threatened to pull out from the present UPA govt. The Congress, heading the UPA, however, seems adamant on FDI in retail issue, this time.
