West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee is on a three-day trip to Bankura district. Apart from attending a virtual meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on COVID-19 from Bankura, Banerjee will hold a number of administrative meetings and a political meeting during the visit.
Earlier, she was to head to the district from Kolkata on Monday. However, she rescheduled her trip and reached Bankura on Sunday itself, as a virtual meeting was scheduled with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. She wanted to ensure the scheduled meetings at Bankura are not affected by this, and there is enough time for these other meetings too. She stayed at Mukutmanipur on Sunday night, and on Monday, she will attend a government programme in Khatra.
On Tuesday, she will hold the meeting with PM Modi at 10 a.m. and then go on to an administrative meeting scheduled at 2.30 pm. She will also hold a public meeting – which will be a political meeting of her party, Trinamool Congress, on Wednesday. She is scheduled to return to Kolkata on Thursday.
