Some CMs' boycott of the NITI Aayog meeting is unwise and anti-people, according to the BJP

The NITI Aayog's governing council meeting was boycotted on Saturday, and the BJP blasted the chief ministers for their “anti-people” and “irresponsible” action.
With a goal of making India a developed country by 2047, the summit, which got underway here on Saturday, will debate a number of topics, including health, skill development, women's empowerment, and infrastructure development.
Senior BJP leader and former Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad stated at a news conference that the NITI Aayog is a crucial organization for identifying the overall purpose, policy framework, and roadmap for the growth of the nation.
He said that the eighth NITI Aayog governing council meeting is scheduled to cover up to 100 topics, but only the chief ministers of eight states are expected to attend.
Arvind Kejriwal, Bhagwant Mann, Mamata Banerjee, Nitish Kumar, M. K. Stalin, and K. Chandrashekar Rao are among the chief ministers who, according to Prasad, would not be at the meeting.
“I've been informed that Ashok Gehlot, the chief minister of Rajasthan, would also not be attending, maybe owing to health issues. There is no representation (at the meeting) on his behalf, but he will speak out with the truth, he said.
A significant decision is made at the meeting of Niti Aayog's governing council, according to the BJP leader, and is then put into action on the ground. Niti Aayog is a very essential venue for having a wide-ranging consultation process among the Center, states, and Union Territories.
In order to make choices on major problems with the chief ministers' ideas for their execution on the ground, the Prime Minister preside over this meeting, which also includes top ministers from the Centre, he said.
Why don't they show up for the meeting where 100 different topics will be discussed? If so many chief ministers abstain, they aren't representing their states' interests, according to Prasad.
He said that it was “very unfortunate, irresponsible, and anti-people” and that the people of the states will be “directly affected” by the chief ministers' absence from the conference.
People should get benefits, right? The BJP politician questioned, “How far would you go in opposing Prime Minister Narendra Modi?
“You will have more chances to challenge Modi. But why are you hurting the citizens of your state?” he demanded.
It is “totally irresponsible” and “against the public interest” as well as “the interest of the people they govern in their states” for the eight chief ministers to skip the conference, Prasad added.
“Creating a development blueprint for your state will be difficult. You'll also claim you weren't there when choices are made during the meeting, he said.
He said, “You won't come to the meeting after being invited and then complain.”
According to Prasad, choices made during the Niti Aayog's governing council's most recent seven sessions had “lots of benefits.”
He highlighted the effects of numerous choices made by the governing council at its past seven sessions, saying that “today, 2,530 cities have adopted the online building permit system in 30 states and Union Territories.”
