T-Bill: Mamata slams 'Cong-BJP syndicate'
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said the 'syndicate of Congress and BJP' helped in passing the Telangana Bill to fulfill their 'own political agenda'.
"This illegally "so-called" passed Bill was then placed in Rajya Sabha and "so-called" passed. Our party protested how such an illegally passed bill in the Lok Sabha can come up to the Rajya Sabha. I am astonished to see how the syndicate of Congress and BJP worked in tandem to fulfill their own political agenda," Banerjee said in a Facebook post on Friday.
The Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo said: "What will be the future of the country if two political parties connive in this way to manipulate important legislations affecting States without taking the States into confidence?"
"They are taking decisions unilaterally when election is knocking at the door. Is it fair, ethical, constitutional? This unholy nexus is indeed an alarming signal for the country," she said.
Amid ruckus, uproars and walkouts, the Upper House of the Parliament on Thursday passed the controversial Telangana Bill, paving way for the creation of the 29th Indian state with only the President now required to put his signature in the paper to make the bill a law.
The Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill 2014 to bifurcate Andhra and form a separate Telangana state was passed by voice vote in the Rajya Sabha.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday announced a special package for Seemandhra region in the Rajya Sabha.
