She also slammed the Centre for its decision to observe January 23 as "Parakram Diwas" to commemorate the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and said the Narendra Modi government did not consult with her before announcing it.

The Narendra Modi government disbanded the Planning Commission in 2014 and had formed the Niti Aayog.

"The unveiling was to mark the beginning of year-long celebrations to commemorate 125th Birth Anniversary Year of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose", the statement issued by the Rashtrapati Bhavan said. In the morning, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee attended the programme arranged by Netaji Research Bureau at Netaji Bhawan in South Kolkata. "We demand the National Planning Commission must be brought back", claimed Bannerjee. "We are celebrating this occasion in a grand manner because it's his 125th birth anniversary", said Banerjee.

BJP's battle cry "Jai Shri Ram" was heard from the crowd.

Banerjee did not walk out of the venue but made her displeasure clear and pointed out that she was "insulted". There has to be some dignity. It doesn't suit you to insult someone after inviting them.

Besides, the Prime Minister is also expected to visit Jerenga Pathar in Sivasagar, Assam to distribute 1.06 lakh land patras or allotment certificates. "This would have made Netaji proud", Modi said. "Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee protests for not maintaining decorum at a Government event and reducing it to a political event by limiting her address to Jai Hind and Jai Bangla".
