Full Transcrip

Sir, the Police Modernisation Scheme has been taken out from the list of Centrally-funded Schemes but West Bengal will suffer a lot because in respect of Jangalmahal area.

West Bengal was also a LWE affected State for a long time. Moreover, Darjeeling is very much sensitive and there are three countries in the border region of West Bengal.

So my question is: Why is the Central Government asking certain State Governments to fund schemes which are essentially national in nature and to do with our national security of our country?

That is why West Bengal should be included in Category ‘A’, at least.
