Mamata Banerjee to raise financial crisis, Ganga erosion with PM Modi


Bangladesh Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan on Tuesday said that Dhaka is "hopeful" of the Teesta water sharing issue being resolved and that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee would consider their demand. He said the BJP's movement against the Trinamul government will remain unaffected.

However, the move has not been reciprocated, at least at the state level.

CPI (M) has condemned Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her government for alleged assault on Left party workers by police during the march terming it as "anti-democratic" attitude.

If the Congress and the Trinamool Congress come together, it's hardly likely that the Left will be part of such a grouping. "We will fight tooth and nail to restore democracy to the state". We will continue our fight.

Confirming that the opposition leaders would meet on Friday to discuss the Presidential election, Ms Banerjee said, "We are in the favour of consensus".

Before leaving for New Delhi, the chief minister told reporters, "If I get an appointment either today or tomorrow, I will discuss the Ganga erosion problem and will ask for funds to deal with the problem of river erosion". But given the recent history of animosity between the Marxists and the Trinamool Congress, not only at the senior leadership level but also right down to the grassroots, a durable compromise between the two rivals is not going to happen.
