Mouthpiece of TMC Jago Bangla Attacks Central Ministers; The rejected painting will be placed in the Kolkata R-day parade
Trinamool Congress Spokesman, Jago Bangla attacked Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh for denying Subhash Chandra Bose’s proposed West Bengal array for the Republic Day Parade on the Netaji and Indian National Army theme.
The daily’s editorial tried to ask how and why the Center made this decision. The newspaper said that since the polls in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand are approaching, their chart is allowed, not that of Bengal.
Mouthpiece clearly points out that this is the policy that Bengal has not found room for and advises the Minister of Finance to see how huge amounts of property have gone to 10 families in this country.
This editorial also raises a question, why the Defense painting was selected, which according to TMC suddenly appeared. He also pointed out that if the central government is involved with Netaji, it should also declassify all files regarding his disappearance. However, a lookalike painting that was rejected will now feature in Kolkata’s Republic Day parade.
In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, Banerjee had expressed his “shock” at the rejection of the state painting, which was themed around Bose and his Indian National Army. It also featured other Bengal icons like Rabindranath Tagore, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, Swami Vivekananda and Sri Aurobindo.
Banerjee, while urging the Prime Minister to reconsider the decision, said it would cause “pain” for the people of West Bengal if not retracted. She had said that no reason had been given for rejecting the painting.
