West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee met PM Narendra Modi at 7 Lok Kalyan Marg in New Delhi on Tuesday. She also held a press conference following her meeting with the Prime Minister.
West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday – the first proper meeting between the two leaders after Banerjee became the state’s chief minister for a third consecutive time. The two leaders had met very briefly when PM Modi visited West Bengal to assess the damage caused by Cyclone Yaas in May.
Calling it a “courtesy” meeting, Banerjee, who is also the Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief, told reporters that she raised the issue of the ongoing coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic and also demanded more vaccines and medicines for West Bengal.
“During the meeting, I raised the issue of Covid and the need for more vaccines & medicines in the state. I also raised the pending issue of the change of name of the state. On this issue, he said, “He will see,” she was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Her visit comes at a time when Parliament’s monsoon session is on in which the opposition parties are protesting on a range of issues including the allegations of surveillance through Pegasus spyware, price rise, and repeal of three farm laws.
