SILIGURI: Darjeeling MP RajuBista on Thursday reached his constituency in a Delhi-Bagdogra flight after being held back in New Delhi for around two months. He would be undertaking home quarantine for some days in Siliguri and also in Darjeeling after speaking with the Darjeeling district magistrate.
Speaking to media at the airport, the BJP MLA alleged that the West Bengal government under Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has ‘totally failed’ to control spread of Covid-19 in the State. “The Chief Minister has failed every time starting with Covid-19, bringing back migrant workers and then in preparations of safety measures against cyclone ‘Amphan’ despite receiving advance warning,” he said.
Bista lauded the efforts of the frontline workers in the State fighting against Covid-19 pandemic.
