kolkata sources stated that the CPI(M) and the TMC criticised the Centre for its decision to rename the kolkata Port Trust after Syama prasad Mookerjee on sunday, contending that the rechristening will have no material impact on the port's performance.
CPI(M) leader and former mp Mohd Salim said "When modi came to power, we thought the government will be a game changer. Now, we see that the government is a name changer" Mohd Salim said "Ideally, the navigability of the Haldia Dock Complex (part of KoPT) should have been increased by improving its draft". Furthermore he said that the bjp leaders are misleading the people with various interpretations of the citizenship amendment act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Also as per report TMC leader and mp abhishek banerjee in a series of tweets said he has no objection over renaming the kolkata port after Syama prasad Mookherjee, but the name change would hardly bring any relief or benefit to the lives of common people in Bengal. He said in a tweet "Bengal has no differences with PM modi renaming the kolkata Port after one of the Stalwart legends of bengal as a part of his Govt's renaming spree. Sadly, the name change brings very little relief or benefit to the lives of common people in #Bengal".
