The West Bengal government continued with its “blow hot, blow cold” attitude towards the NDA government at the Centre with both Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee and state Food Minister, Jyotipriya Mallick snubbing Union Food Minister, Ramvilas Paswan Saturday.
Paswan, who was in Kolkata, had reportedly sought an appointment with Mamata, but it was denied citing “prior commitments”. Mallick, on the other hand, said he he was “not given any such programme”.
Paswan, meanwhile, said the Centre will give all assistance to the state to implement the National Food Security Act, the deadline for which has been extended by three months. “The deadline for implementation of the NFSA expires on July 4. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has written a letter demanding that it be extended by six months. We have extended it for three months,” Paswan told reporters here.
