Kolkata: Calling for a march to the national capital, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said, ” We will make sure our voice reaches the ears of the leaders in Delhi for the due funds of the poor people of Bengal. ”

” For far too long, the people of Bengal have been bearing the brunt of withheld MGNREGA and Awas Yojana funds, ” Banerjee stated.

” But, we will not bow down, ” she asserted.

” We shall march to Delhi, carrying the heartfelt letters written by the affected people, ” the Chief Minister said adding, ” Together, we stand firm and unwavering, for Bengal and its people. ”

On Wednesday, she said, ” Despite being the best performing state in the MGNREGA Scheme, the Centre has stopped funds out of sheer jealousy and vendetta politics. ”

” We will take over fight to Delhi, ” Banerjee added.

” No longer will the people of Bengal tolerate BJP-led Central Government’s deprivation, ” the party said.

” For more than two years, they have withheld ₹6,907 crore of funds under the 100-day work programme. We are prepared to fight head on and ensure that our people get their rightful dues. ”

” BJP-led Central Government’s politics of vendetta must end. Their wrongful withholding of funds due to Bengal under MGNREGA and Awas Yojna has caused immense suffering and deprivation. ”

” Resolved to fight for people’s rights, we shall take their cause to the power corridors of Delhi and persist until justice is served. “
