Mamata promise probe into demonetization, revive Planning Commission

West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, today, promised to conduct an investigation into demonetisation and revive the Planning Commission if the opposition alliance comes to power after the Lok Sabha elections.

Releasing the party’s manifesto, Banerjee said the 100 days’ work scheme would be increased to 200 days and the wages would also be doubled under it.

“We would conduct a probe into the decision of demonetisation and bring back the Planning Commission. The NITI Aayog is of no use,” she said. “We would review the present GST. If it is really helping people, we would keep it,” she said.

Meanwhile, in a series of tweets, she lashed out at the Prime Minister Modi for announcing Mission Sakti accusing him of violating the model code  of conduct.

Research, space management & development are a continuous process over the years. Modi, as usual, likes to take the credit for everything. Credit to those who really deserve it, our scientists & researchers, she tweeted.

She also tweeted stating that there is no great urgency in conducting and announcing the mission now by a government past its expiry date. It seems a desperate oxygen to save the imminent sinking of the BJP boat. We are lodging a complaint with the Election Commission.
