Citing an offence to the federal structure of the country,UPA ally Trinamool Congress has filed a dissent note on the Citizens’ Charter Bill in the recommendations of the parliamentary panel on personnel,public grievances,law and justice.

Trinamool Congress’s deputy leader in the Rajya Sabha Sukehndu Shekhar Roy said in the note that the Central Act should be limited to the public authorities of the Union government only and that rendering of time-bound services and redressal of their grievances in this matter in states should be left to the state Legislatures to enact a suitable law.

“If a Central Act is thrust upon the states…,this will not only offend the the federal character of the Constitution of India,but also make way for the Centre to transgress into the powers of the state and may tend to jeopardise and/or jettison our constitutional arrangements in vogue,” he said in his dissent note.
