TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee also stated that she will work hard to solve the Kashmir issue and if needed will stay there to interact with the people to understand their problems.
Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday promised to conduct an investigation into demonetisation and revive the Planning Commission if the opposition alliance comes to power after the Lok Sabha elections. Banerjee also stated that her party will discuss these issues with other political parties before finalising on a common minimum programme. “In 2014 the situation was different. The country has gone through a lot in last five years. That’s why we have focused on issues which are of national importance. A new government will be formed after the elections which will address these issues after discussing them with other political parties. We want a court monitored probe in demonetisation as it was one of the biggest scams in the country. Earlier GST was something else and now it has been implemented in a hurried manner. We will simplify it once a new government is formed. We will also bring back the planning commission,” Banerjee said after announcing her party’s manifesto at her residence.
“I believe that Kashmir issue can be resolved. We have to take the people there into confidence to do that. If needed I will stay there to understand their problems,” she said.
Banerjee took exception to appointment of former BSF director general K K Sharma as special police observer for West Bengal and Jharkhand during the Lok Sabha elections.
