Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee does not want the entry of any laborers in West Bengal till 26 May. Mamta Banerjee has written a letter to the Railways, asking that no labor train should be sent to Bengal by 26 May. Mamta govt. says that many people have become homeless due to the storm and right now their rehabilitation is the priority of the government.
Significantly, the opposition parties had earlier accused the government that the state government did not intend to bring trapped laborers and pilgrims to their homes in other states. There is a loss of more than one lakh crore rupees, whereas the state lost 80 lives due to the cyclone and thousands of people have become homeless.
After leaving the Prime Minister at the airport, she told reporters, “Most of the areas we surveyed are completely devastated.” I gave the Prime Minister detailed information about the post-cyclone situation in the state. “
The Prime Minister also announced an advance interim assistance of Rs 1,000 crore to the state after the meeting. However, Mamta said, “The Prime Minister has announced a contingency fund of Rs 1,000 crore, whereas I don’t know what the package is, I told him that we would give them the details. It will take some time to assess the whole situation, but there is a loss of more than one lakh crore rupees. “
