Mamata to meet Modi today

24 May 2017

Ahead of the Opposition's huddle to decide on a consensus candidate for the presidential poll, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow to seek more funds for her state for tackling the financial crisis and Ganga erosion.
During her stay in the capital, Mamata is also likely to meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi. The chief minister will meet the Prime Minister on Thursday, said a close aide of Mamata. Before leaving for the national capital, she told newspersons in Kolkata: "... I will discuss the Ganga erosion problem and will ask for funds to deal with the problem of river erosion."
