Mumbai: Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Thursday reprimanded Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for not attending the upcoming Central Government meeting on the National Population Register (NPR) and said she should understand her constitutional duties.
Naqvi said, “Mamta Banerjee is the Chief Minister of West Bengal and not the leader of the entire country. At least she should understand her constitutional duties.”
Earlier in the day, Banerjee said that she would not attend the forthcoming Central Government meeting on NPR to be held on January 17 in the national capital.
Asked about the remarks about the government, JNU Students Union President Aisha Ghosh said that he said that somewhere the government starts from Kashmir that our constitution is taken away from us, the leader said: “Student movement is a good thing but it should not be made into an anarchist movement.”
After the Congress questioned the arrest of Hizbul Mujahideen’s two terrorists, Jammu and Kashmir Superintendent of Police Davinder Singh, the minister said, “This is the same Congress party that cried over Osama bin Laden’s death. The Congress party always supported “Terrorist leaders and their activities. They are the voice of Pakistan.”
