MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan slammed CM Mamata Banerjee for skipping Cyclone Yaas review meet with PM Modi

News Desk: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday slammed Mamata Banerjee for skipping Cyclone Yaas review meet with PM Narendra Modi and said that TMC Supremo’s conduct is an insult to the people of West Bengal.

The BJP leader said that he has never seen ‘such a low level of politics’.

“I am also a Chief Minister, and was there at the post even during the time of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh ji, but I never disrespected him,” Shivraj Singh Chouhan stated.

“You do not want to discuss the welfare of the people who chose you, if this is not your ego then what is?,” he asked.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah also hit out at West Bengal CM and said that ‘Mamata Didi’s conduct is an unfortunate low’.

“Cyclone Yaas has affected several common citizens and the need of the hour is to assist those affected. Sadly, Didi has put arrogance above public welfare and today’s petty behaviour reflects that,” Shah tweeted.

Earlier on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a review meeting at Kalaikunda in Paschim Medinipur district to take stock of the post cyclonic situation, where Mamata Banerjee was also supposed to attend the meeting.

However, the TMC supremo arrived late by 30 minutes and handed him over reports of damage caused by the impact of Cyclone Yaas. Following this, she left for her prescheduled meeting at Digha.

Cyclone Yaas made its landfall in West Bengal on Wednesday and several districts including Purba Medinipur, Paschim Medinipur, Bankura, South 24 Pargana and Jhargram suffered its impact. The coastal areas like Digha and Sundarban were reportedly the worst affected.

PM Modi also conducted an aerial survey of the cyclone-affected areas in West Bengal and Odisha.
