Kolkata: All bank accounts of the Mother Teresa-founded Missionaries of Charity have been frozen by the Centre, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said on Monday.
The Trinamool Congress chief took to Twitter to state that 22,000 patients and employees of the charitable group “have been left without food and medicines” due to the move.
“While the law is paramount, humanitarian efforts must not be compromised,” Mamata added.
The Kolkata-based Missionaries of Charity has not yet spoken on the issue, neither has the Union government come out with a statement.
Earlier this month, a case had been registered in Vadodara against the Missionaries-run home for girls following allegations of conversion that inmates forced conversion of inmates.
The organization, however, refuted allegations.
