  • West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said the free treatment will no longer be possible considering the financial constraints of the state

While speaking at the 6th convention of West Bengal University of Health Sciences, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced that due to financial constrain, Trinamool Congress government won't provide free of cost treatment to outsiders including people from other states and countries.

Mamata Banerjee didn't give a clear answer if she could lead a front of regional parties.

The health department official, who did not wish to be named, said that on an average, about 20% of the patients getting free treatment are from other states and countries. Federal Front of regional parties is the future.

A senior Trinamool Congress leader later confirmed that a probe was indeed on into the issue. "If regional parties come together and form a platform, it would be good for the country", she said in an interview to Bengali news channel "Zee 24Ghanta". "It also indicated that the Congress will have to work harder to win the support of regional parties".

Ms Banerjee based the Rashtriya Janata Dal, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the Telangana Rashtriya Samiti and the Telugu Desam Party will function well in the Lok Sabha polls. Staying strong, she added, "But I'm not scared.".

"While Banerjee said she has good relations with Sonia Gandhi, she also criticised the Congress for "acting unilaterally" as the Opposition".

Giuliani says Trump 'wasn't aware' of Cohen pitch promising access
AT&T on Tuesday said it sought insights into the new administration from Essential Consultants , but did not engage in lobbying. AT&T had confirmed it hired Cohen after Trump was elected, but hadn't publicly explained in detail its motives for the move.

"The Congress should have worked more tactfully with H D Deve Gowda, it would have helped them", she said. As per the latest decision by the Bengal Government, the State run hospitals will now extend the facility of free treatment only to the original residents.

The Chief Minister clarified that denial of free treatment to outsiders doesn't mean that outsider won't be treated by State-run hospitals.

It is actually a pitch that grew louder soon after Rahul Gandhi's altitude as party chief in December last.

It hadn't gone unnoticed that Ms Banerjee did not congratulate him then nor for the Congress's improved performance in Gujarat. She, however, congratulated Hardik Patel and Jignesh Mevani for his or her survey victory. However, she stopped short of naming any political party. "The Congress does not even protest", she pointed out.

Banerjee lives in a single-storey in South Kolkata's Harish Chatterjee Street, which she has been occupying since before becoming the CM.
