Mamata’s ultimatum played down by Cong
Congress today seemed to play down West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's ultimatum to the Centre regarding the moratorium on interest expense lumber of the state.Manish Tewari stated: "If West Bengal Chief Minister has certain issues, demands and aspiration with the central government, I am sure the government will interlocute with her and see how the development imperatives of the state can be addressed under the Constitutional framework"."Every Chief Minister or state has some legitimate expectations and aspirations and wants the best possible for his or her state", he added further.Tewari refused to agree to Banerjee's firmness is any kind of menace adding "it is very important that in public discourse, when aspirations are articulated by individuals or states, they should not be seen from the terminology of threat."
