Kolkata: After the tragic train accident in Odisha's Balasore, the Mamata Banerjee government of West Bengal has announced financial assistance to the victims. The Mamata government has also promised to provide jobs along with financial help to the victims. The Trinamool Congress (TMC) has also announced a financial assistance of Rs 2 lakh to the victims, but on Tuesday, state BJP president Sukanta Majumdar shared a video on his Twitter handle, in which the victims are holding a bundle of Rs 2000 notes.
মমতা বন্দ্যোপাধ্যায়ের নির্দেশে তৃণমূল দলের পক্ষ থেকে নিহতদের পরিবারকে 2 লক্ষ টাকার আর্থিক সাহায্য করছেন রাজ্যের একজন মন্ত্রী। সাধুবাদ জানাই। কিন্তু এপ্রসঙ্গে এই প্রশ্নটাও রাখছি, একসাথে 2000 টাকার নোটে 2 লক্ষ টাকার বান্ডিলের উৎস কি? pic.twitter.com/TlisMituGG— Dr. Sukanta Majumdar (@DrSukantaBJP) June 6, 2023
Sukanta Majumdar has praised the TMC's initiative to provide financial assistance to the families of the victims, but has questioned whether the TMC is not converting its black money into white through it. Sukanta Majumdar wrote on his Twitter handle, 'On the instructions of Mamata Banerjee, a Bengal minister is giving financial assistance of Rs 2 lakh to the families of the victims on behalf of the TMC party. I appreciate you, but in this context, I am also raising the question that what is the source of the 2000 rupee bundle in 2000 rupees notes?'
He wrote, "The process of exchanging notes through banks is going on. The problem of victims has increased due to the giving of 2000 rupees notes. When I reached the hospital that night after the Balasore train accident, I asked some people where they were going, they were going to other states for treatment and work in other states." He asked Mamata Banerjee whether this is Agie Bangla.
