Speaking to reporters here, Nirmala Sitharaman said that Narendra Modi was the CM of Gujarat for 10 years before he became the Prime Minister. So they know how to get money from the center at the right time. there is no substance in the allegations of the state government. Chief Minister can send me the letter and much before the letter reaches me he can put it in social media.

I am a MP from the state. I have a responsibility also. There is  nothing pending. So that’s the truth behind any allegation? Sitharaman questioned

Responding to a question on release of NDRF funds for drought relief, She said, For NDRF there is a committee. The Home Minister looks into it. I had Minister Krishna Byre Gowda come and meet me. Even there I explained to him saying the money whichever is being decided will be. its not as if NDRF money will not come, the assessment team, the technical team, they all come and made a team assessment, they have submitted to the high powered committee. The moment the committee recommends the money is going to come. It is due to the state. Nobody’s going to stop it, Sitharaman said
