There is often a tussle between Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and the central government. Once again both are face to face. In fact, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had alleged that the Ministry of Home Affairs has frozen all the bank accounts of Mother Teresa’s Missionary of Charity. At the same time, the Missionary of Charity has said on Monday that the Union Home Ministry has not ordered freezing of any of his accounts.
This clarification came after a statement by the Union Home Ministry in which it said that the application for renewal of FCRA registration was rejected on December 25 for not fulfilling the eligibility conditions under FCRA 2010 and Foreign Contribution Regulation Rules 2011. According to the ministry statement, no request has been received from the Missionaries of Charity for a review of its decision to reject the renewal application.
The registration of the Missionaries of Charity under the FCRA was valid till October 31, 2021. The Ministry of Home Affairs said that the validity was extended till December 31, 2021. The ministry said, “The Union Home Ministry has not frozen any account of the MoC. State Bank of India has informed that the MoC itself had sent a request to SBI to freeze its accounts.
On the other hand, Mamata Banerjee had earlier claimed that all bank accounts of Missionaries of Charity have been frozen by the Centre. Expressing grief on Twitter, the Trinamool leader said that 22,000 patients and staff of the Kolkata-based charity group were left without food and medicines following the alleged order of the Centre. He said though the law is paramount. But humanitarian efforts should not be compromised.
BJP has asked Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee to apologize on this whole matter. Leader of Opposition in the state Suvendu Adhikari said, “Our CM used social media unethically. My demand is very clear, he should apologize to the country unconditionally.
