State Parliamentary affairs and industry minister Partha Chatterjee told reporters after a meeting of the TMC legislature party here, the resolution would seek the Centre reversed its decision on linking direct benefit transfer with Aadhar cards, as most people of the state were yet to get it.
"We will urge the Centre to reconsider its decision," Chatterjee said.
At the legislature party meet, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had urged the party MLAs to remain alert against rumours which were being floated by some vested interests, he said.
Regarding rise in prices of vegetables and other commodities, Chatterjee said the Chief Minister told the MLAs that it was taking place because of `faulty` policies of the UPA government at the Centre.
