  • Mamata Banerjee to discuss with Sonia Gandhi on govt formation in WB

    Published on May 16, 2011

    Trinamool Congress Chief Mamata Banerjee will hold discussions with Congress President Sonia Gandhi today on government formation in West Bengal, where she will take over as Chief Minister. Ms. Banerjee, who along with Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee arrived in New Delhi from Kolkata late last night, will also meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

    Issues of government formation in West Bengal and Ms. Banerjee’s successor in the Railway Ministry are expected to be discussed by the leaders. The TMC wants ally Congress to join the government in West Bengal. Congress has already given a letter of support to the party.

    The Trinamool Congress last night formally staked claim to form the next government in West Bengal shortly after Ms. Banerjee was unanimously elected Leader of the Trinamool Congress Legislature Party (TCLP).
