Now Mamata accuses Centre of bulldozing federal structure of nationKolkata, Dec 1 (IANS) West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday launched a scathing attack accusing the Centre of dismantling the federal structure of the country.

“The Centre is giving lectures. But where has all the money of the PM CARES Fund gone? Where are the lakhs of crores of money gone? Why was no audit done?” Banerjee said.
