Bengal Guv assures TMC of taking up MGNREGA fund scheme dues' issue with Centre

Kolkata/IBNS/UNI: West Bengal Governor C V Ananda Bose on Monday assured a Trinamool Congress delegation, led by its national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee, that he would convey to the Centre about the MGNREGA fund scheme dues to the State Government, official sources said.

The Governor, who was in New Delhi and visited the flood-affected North Bengal, including the Hills of Darjeeling, returned on Monday and invited a Banerjee-led TMC delegation to meet him in Raj Bhawan, sources said.

The meeting was held for nearly 20 minutes.

The TMC leadership has been on sit-in-dharna in front of Raj Bhawan gate for the past five days and insisted that unless the Governor meets them, they would not call off the demonstration.

Sources said the Governor after the meeting is expected to leave for New Delhi by tonight.

The TMC is believed to have called off the agitation.

The TMC delegation called on the Governor at 4 PM and submitted a memorandum on MGNREGA.

The Governor listened to what the party leader had to say and said the issue would be conveyed to the central government.

Governor Bose told the delegation that whatever is required for the welfare of the people of the state will be done, sources said.

“We are expecting that the Governor would act as per the interest of the common people in the state," Banerjee told reporters outside the Raj Bhawan gate.

It might be mentioned that the TMC workers held a protest against the Union Government for what it claimed was the Centre's alleged failure in disbursing funds to the state for MGNREGA, AWAS Yojana, and other Central schemes.
