Mamata Banerjee vs Centre's rift continues, Didi writes to PM Modi over WB Chief Secy

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking for a rescind on the transfer order of the Chief Secretary of West Bengal. In the letter, she has reminded the PM of ‘federalism’ and states no intention to relieve top babu. The ‘recalled’ chief secretary has decided to stay put and won’t report to Delhi today. Mamata has taken it to media, stating that they have received a letter from the Centre, asking the chief secretary to join the next day. She further states that the TMC government had sought his extension as Chief Secretary. However, the Centre has called its decision to be final. Mamata Banerjee is still seeking an explanation for the final decision, though. After the Centre’s final decision, Bengal CS has refused to accept the extension and will be retiring.
