Planning Commission like body to be formed in Bengal to honour Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose

All kind of politics playing out in India.

West Bengal government has proposed setting up a Bengal Planning Commission to honour Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

Hitting out at the BJP-led central government for abolishing the Planning Commission conceptualised by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said that her government would come up with a similar body to take ahead the national hero’s ideas and vision.

“Netaji’s Planning Commission has been dissolved by the central government. They have named it (the new body which replaced the institution) Niti Aayog, I do not know. Earlier, I used to go for meetings of the Planning Commission which sought suggestions from each state. Now we cannot share our views,” Banerjee said.

In all this, I just learnt that the Government already has a Department of Planning and Statistics.
