The Alapan Bandopadhyay issue is close: Says Mamata Banerjee.
Since last week, there has been a lot of tension between state and central about Alapan Bandopadhyay. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has virtually put an end to it with necessary steps. However, Alapan Bandopadhyay retires on May 31 after rejecting the central directive. Then Mamata Banerjee appointed him as her chief adviser.
In this way, the tug-of-war between the Center and the state has ended. The Center has sent a show-cause notice to the former Chief Secretary under the Disaster Management Act. Although, a reply has given within three days.
In the meantime, Mamata Banerjee clarified to the press conference that the issue is over. And, there is no need to talk anymore about this issue. It indicates that the state government is moving towards legal action against the central.
Meanwhile, lawyer Abu Sohel has filed a public interest lawsuit in the Calcutta High Court against the Center for sending a show-cause notice to Alapana Banerjee even after his retirement.
When the Prime Minister called a meeting in Kalaikunda to inspect the post-Yash situation in the state, the then Chief Secretary Alapan Banerjee was not present. Therefore, the Center show-caused him protested under the Disaster Management Act.
According to the IPS, IAS rules of 1954, the transfer of a bureaucrat working in the state needs to discuss with the state. He complained that the central government did not follow this procedure. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
