The Centre (Government of India) has turned into a salesman trying to sell plastic cards, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Thursday, minutes after Union Finance Minister held a press conference advocating digital transactions.
“The government is acting like a salesman. They have started selling products. They have started selling plastic cards… This is a desperate attempt to divert from the main issue. They are making more than a blunder a day,” she said in a series of tweets.
Sharpening her attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over demonetization, Mamata Banerjee said he must resign because the move has led to “economic disaster” in the country and Modi has “no moral right” to continue.
Alleging the country’s growth and business have been hit due to demonetization, she said the Prime Minister “doesn’t trust” anyone and “doesn’t understand” what is good for the country.
“There is no teamwork. He did not consult experts. It is a one-man dictatorship. It is a one-man made disaster. It is a dangerous tendency,” Mamata Banerjee told reporters at Nabanna.
