Chief Secretary of the West Bengal state was informed of the visit of two central teams to review lockdown violations 15 minutes before special plane landed.
As per protocol, State govt is to be intimated in advance . Mamata in her strongly worded letter said Amit Shah calls Mamata Banerjee only three hours after central team lands in Kolkata
An angry West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee wrote a letter to the Prime Minister and took to Twitter on Monday to protest the visit of central teams without intimation to the state.
“We welcome all constructive support & suggestions, especially from the Central Govt in negating the Covid19 crisis. However, the basis on which Centre is proposing to deploy IMCTs in select districts across India including few in WB under Disaster Mgmt Act 2005 is unclear.
I urge both Honb’le Prime Minister NarendraModi Ji & Home Minister AmitShah Ji to share the criterion used for this. Until then I am afraid, we would not be able to move ahead on this as without valid reasons this might not be consistent with the spirit of federalism ”

Mamata known for her bullying nature has made up a point due to the fact that West Bengal as at 21st April has only 392 Corona virus affected where as more than 12 states are ahead in numbers .,
Critics pointed that higher ranks states where the Center government services may be utilised rather than bullying with a lower rank state
