Union Finance Minster Arun Jaitley on Wednesday said that all the Chief Ministers, who had boycotted the second meeting of the Governing Council of NITI Aayog today, should introspect that not attending it is against the spirit of co-operative federalism.

“The governing council of NITI Aayog met today, chaired by the Prime Minister. Those who boycotted the meet should introspect that not attending it is against the spirit of co-operative federalism,” he told the media here.

According to reports, nine Congress chief ministers boycotted the NITI Aayog meet, including West Bengal’s Mamata Banerjee, Odisha’s Naveen Patnaik and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa also skipped the meeting and was represented by former chief minister, O Paneerselvam.
