Can attend the ‘One Country One Election’ committee meeting
The budget session is starting from today in Bengal. The state budget will be presented on 8 February. State Parliamentary Affairs Minister Sovandeb Chatterjee said that the budget session will continue till February 17. But due to a decision of the West Bengal government, the dispute between Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Governor Dr CV Anand Bose is likely to intensify again. Actually, no information has been received regarding the budget session of the State Assembly starting from today at Raj Bhavan. According to reliable sources at Raj Bhavan, the Governor has not yet received any information from the government regarding his speech in the Assembly. Therefore, there is doubt whether the session will start without the Governor’s speech?
According to officials, new welfare projects for women and youth may be announced in this year’s budget proposal. Before the last Lok Sabha elections in 2019, an interim budget was presented by the state government and the full budget was presented after the general elections.
Mamata Banerjee will leave for Delhi today after the inaugural session
On the other hand, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is expected to attend the inaugural session today. After this, she will leave for Delhi to participate in the meeting of ‘One Nation One Election’ committee to be held tomorrow i.e. on 6th February. Mamata had expressed disagreement with the idea of holding ‘one country, one election’. In this context, he had written a letter to the high level committee last month. In the letter he had said that ‘one nation one election’ would be against the basic structure of India’s constitutional system. However, when Mamata Banerjee was sitting on strike demanding state funds, she said that she would visit Delhi on February 5 in connection with the meeting on ‘One Nation One Election’.
