Pledging full support to the Union government on the tensions with China, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said banning apps is not enough and the Centre should give a befitting reply to the neighbour.
“Only banning some apps will not give you the result. We want to give China a befitting reply. How do we do it, that they have to decide,” she told journalists at the Secretariat. Ms. Banerjee said unless there is an ‘aggressive’ response from the Centre, people of the country will wonder, “What is the government stand?”
The Chief Minister clarified her party’s stand on external relations. “We never interfere in external affairs issues. Our party stand is clear, we fully support the government’s stand.”
