State has hijacked Central schemes: Adhikari on Budget

Commenting on some of the projects that the Mamata Banerjee government wishes to implement, such as the Tajpur Port, Mr Adhikari said that these are mere illusions because Tajpur Port is not possible since that requires a huge amount of land. “Does the state government have the guts to buy land for the project? These are just to fool the people. This is an anti-people budget.”
