BREAKING - TMC MLA Jitendra Tiwari wrote explosive letter against Mamata Government

The state government's uneasiness was heightened by Jitendra Tiwari, head of the Asansol municipality's administrative board and Pandaveshwar MLA. In a letter to Prime Minister Firhad Hakim, he alleged that Asanol Municipality had been deprived of funds for the central project due to political reasons. Jitendra Tiwari also complained in the letter that Asansol has lost the opportunity to be a smart city for the state. Significantly, Jitendra Tiwari also resigned as chairman of two steering committees in Asansol and Raniganj.

“Being born and brought up as a responsible citizen of Asansol and performing the responsibilities of the Urban Local Body of this city as a Chairman, Mayor & Administrator from past several years I am very grieved to state you that our city was chosen by the Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India under Smart City Mission Project which if would have been allowed by you our city could have received funds amounting 2000 Crores which would be very crucial for the development of our city. Asansol was chosen under this project as a result of tremendous work effort of Councilors and the entire team of AMC leading to being qualified as a city to be chosen under this but due to political reasons we were not allowed to get the benefits of this project by the State Government,” Tiwari wrote to Hakim.

He also added, "It was instead promised that funds will be made available by the State Government for the overall development of this city but it was not done. Similarly, under Solid Waste Management project, Asansol City could have received another 1500 Crores Fund by the Central Government like several other cities in our country but you and your department have not allowed us to get the benefits of these Central Government Funds due to which I feel that injustice has been made to the City of Asansol.
