Mamata Banerjee Meets PM Modi in Delhi to ‘Mend Ties With Centre’ After Months of Skirmishes


New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday afternoon met Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee in Delhi. On the top agenda of the meeting was the betterment of ties between the Centre and the West Bengal government.

The photographs of the meeting were shared by PM Modi from his official Twitter handle.

Earlier, leaders of the BJP as well as the TMC said that apart from the issues of central funds, name change of the state and the concerns of Public Sector Banks, the Bengal chief minister is on a “cooling mission” to mend ties with the government and get the best possible deal for Bengal.

The war of words between the two leaders had escalated before the Lok Sabha elections. While Banerjee accused the BJP of indulging in divisive politics, PM Modi flayed her for the political violence in the state. Modi and Mamata had last met at the annual convocation ceremony at Visva Bharati University in Shantiniketan in May 2018.

Meanwhile, Banerjee had a chance meeting with Modi’s wife Jashodaben at the Kolkata airport as she was on her way to Delhi to meet the PM.
