Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has objected to a move by the Center to allow 100 per cent FDI in the country’s coal sector, saying its a “misleading message to the public “.

Allowing 100% FDI in the coal sector for MNCs is opposite to our principles what we have to follow now, and by doing so it sets an bad example for the public. Because it contradicts the basic principle of Self-reliant India. “This will kill the vision of self-reliance we have been pursuing since the beginning,” Mamata Banerjee wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
