NEW DELHI: While protesting against West Bengal's Trinamool Congress government, Union Minister and BJP leader Babul Supriyo on Sunday said that Mamata Banerjee wants to hide the actual coronavirus situation in the state.
"The Mamata Banerjee-led government's way of handling the coronavirus situation in the state is shameful. While she wants the Centre's help, personal protection equipment (PPE) kits and fund to fight against coronavirus, the government keeps on lying about the Central Government," Supriyo said.

He also slammed the TMC government for harassing the Inter-Ministerial Central Teams (ICMTs) which had gone to inspect the coronavirus situation in West Bengal.
He took a jibe at TMC leader Derek O'Brien for making a "disgusting" statement against the ICMT and the Centre. "Derek O'Brien had said that the Central team brought a political virus into Bengal during their visit. What kind of Parliamentarian he is who makes such a comment? There must be a reason why people call him Derek No Brain," he added.
