Congress, Trinamool squabble in LS over coordination committee

New Delhi: As Congress and Trinamool Congress members squabbled in Lok Sabha over holding meetings of a committee on district development in West Bengal, Rural Development Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that he would take this matter up with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Attacking Bengal’s ruling Trinamool, Congress’ Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said that there was no democracy in the state and no meeting of District Development Coordination and Monitoring Committee of the Rural Development Ministry has taken place in the past six years.

“I head the committee, but requests to hold the meeting has never been accepted,” he said.

At this, members of both the parties started raising slogans against each other.

Tomar said that he would write a letter to Banerjee and take this matter up with her.

Tomar also said Chowdhury should resolve this issue by raising it with Congress and Trinamool leaders.
