Didi Visits Mumbai to Meet India Partners, and Attend Ambani Wedding

Kolkata: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee flew to Mumbai on Thursday to meet the INDIA bloc leaders -- Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray, NCP (SP) chief Sharad Pawar and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav -- on Friday. She will also attend the wedding of industrialist Mukesh Ambani's son Anant Ambani.

Before her departure to Mumbai, the CM at the Kolkata airport said, “I'm going to Mumbai to attend the marriage of the son of Mukesh Ji... He has attended the Bengal Global Business Summit multiple times on our invitation... I might not have gone, but since they have repeatedly asked me to come, including Mukesh Ji, his son, and Neeta Ji, I decided to attend the event."

Talking about her political engagements in Mumbai, the TMC chief said, “I also have an appointment with Mr Thackeray on Friday to discuss politics. It has been a long time; we haven't met since the Lok Sabha elections. I will meet Sharad Ji at his residence. One meeting is at 4 pm, while the other is at 5 pm."

Ms Banerjee added: "Mr Yadav is also reaching Mumbai on Friday. I may meet him also. But it is yet to be decided when he will reach there. I will return after attending the marriage.”

The Trinamul Congress supremo also slammed BJP IT Cell chief Amit Malviya and a section of the media for highlighting, ahead of Wednesday’s Assembly bypolls at four seats in the state, an old video of the TMC men beating up a person inside a club at Ariadaha in Kamarhati of North 24 Parganas.

She also claimed that BJP leader Arjun Singh was the local MP then. Ms Banerjee said: “Those, who were involved, were arrested and are in jail. Even today, at Ranibandh in Bankura, attempts are being made to make the incident of a death viral. I inquired about it and found that it was the fallout of a family dispute or personal enmity. There is nothing political regarding this."
