Union Minister and BJP leader Babul Supriyo on Tuesday said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will not remain in office 'very long' and that she is surviving in power only on borrowed time.
'Mamata Banerjee is living on borrowed time! She won’t remain Chief Minister for very long and therefore won’t be invited to these meetings anyways. People would not pardon her for always keeping her petty dirty politics and personal ego above West Bengal’s welfare,' Mr Supriyo tweeted.
Ms Banerjee had stayed away from the NITI Aayog meeting on Saturday, June 15. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has convened a meeting on Wednesday to decide about 'One Nation One Election' and invited leaders of all parties to attend the same.
Ms Banerjee on Tuesday announced that she will not attend the meeting. In a letter to Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi, the Chief Minister said, 'Instead of doing the matter hurriedly, I would request you to kindly circulate a White Paper on the subject to all parties inviting their views by providing adequate time.'
