Digital Desk: Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, recently travelled abroad, which sparked a verbal spat between the ruling party, the Trinamool Congress (TMC), and the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The BJP has questioned Mamata Banerjee's trips to Spain and the UAE, calling them "vacations," because she has been criticizing PM Modi for going abroad.
Suvendu Adhikari, the head of the opposition in West Bengal, claimed that Mamata Banerjee's visit had produced no results and that the TMC was "hobnobbing with corruption" for raising concerns about Modi's foreign trip.
Adhikari said, Prime Minister Modi's "strategic trips" paved the way for India to be "recognised as one with growing prominence" on the global stage.
"On the other hand, judging by the current regime's and the ruling Trinamool party's hobnobbing with corruption in WB, the only thing that might be achieved after the CM's trip/vacation is a successful gathering of G420," the BJP leader added.
Adhikari made the accusations, and TMC spokesman Kunal Ghosh responded by saying Mamata Banerjee "is more trustworthy" than PM Modi.
Talking to ‘X’, Ghosh stated, "PM Narendra Modi embarked on foreign trips while Manipur was burning. He jetted off to the United States, France, and the UAE but didn't bother to visit Manipur even once. Spare us the charade! We all know which leader is trustworthy and who is not!”
In a media interview on Sunday, Adhikari continued in criticizing the Chief Minister. He stated, "At a time when West Bengal's dengue outbreak was reaching frightening proportions, the CM travelled for vacation abroad with no regard for the outbreak. The dengue situation has worsened while she has been away on a pointless visit."
After a 12-day trip to Spain and the United Arab Emirates, Mamata Banerjee arrived back in Kolkata on Saturday. When she got there, she declared that the tour had been "very successful" in luring investors to the state.
"It was a very good trip. I have not ever seen such a successful tour in my life. I am happy that I could do so much for Bengal," stated Mamata.
The Chief Minister stated that significant MoUs were inked during the international meetings, which were organized by FICCI and the Indian Chamber of Commerce.
