Taking a tough stance, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banarjee has hinted that state is not in the position for its survival and demanded for a tax moratorium for the next three years. The stands come forward in such a time when relationship of Trinamool congress with UPA is not going well.
In a function Mamata Banarjee said that state government has not enough money to run the functioning of governement and the central government is busy in taking all the money from state as an interests of the huge debt, which was taken by the previous left government.
This is simply unacceptable. We have been demanding for last one year and now government will have to accept our demand and tax moratorium should be for the next three years, she added.
She said that it is difficult to run the state if all the money has been taken by central government. A lot has been said for the assistance from the central government to state but the fact is that we have not took any money.
I have met Prime Minister earlier for the demand and once again am ready to meet him, she said.
It is noted that the current relationship of Trinamool Congress with Congress is not well as her party has opposed policies many times.
With 19 M.P. in Loksabha and Six in Rajyasabha, Trinamool Congress is the second largest constituent of the UPA.
