"I received no invitation," informed the Chief Minister and also added that he did not have any idea about any of his cabinet colleagues being invited to the programme.
Railways arranged a programme at Joka in adjoining South 24 Parganas district for the Joka-BBD Bagh Metro Railway project on sep 22.
However, Transport minister, Ranjit Kundu received an invitation in e-mail but he also claimed, "The invitation letter was delivered at the eleventh hour."
He also added, "and there is no question of attending the programme considering the indecent manner in which the invitation has been accorded. It involves the prestige of the state government."
