The Center has made preparations to act on Alaban Bandyopadhyay, the new chief advisor to Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The Center has sent a show-cause notice to Alapan for missing out on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting, to which he will have to reply within three days. Section 51 (b) of the Disaster Management Act has also been imposed against Alapan.
Center told the story of waiting for 15 minutes in the meeting
The Center wrote in its letter – Prime Minister Modi reached Kalaikunda Air Force Station after doing an aerial tour of the disaster-affected areas. After this he had to hold a meeting with the Chief Minister, Chief Secretary of Bengal here. The Prime Minister had to wait 15 minutes for the state government officials in the meeting room. When the Chief Secretary did not reach, he was called by the officials and asked whether he would attend this meeting or not? After this the Chief Secretary and the Chief Minister came to the meeting room and left immediately.
It would be considered absent from the review meeting of the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister is also the Chairman of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). This action of Alapan Bandhopadhyay would be considered to be bypassing the instructions given by the Center legally. In such a situation, Section 51 (b) of the Disaster Management Act is imposed on them.
We have asked Alapan in writing to answer why action should be taken against him for violating the Disaster Relief Act under Section 51 (b). They have to give reasons within 3 days.
