West Bengal cm Mamata Banerjee is on a three-day visit to Mumbai. Mamata is likely to meet NCP supremo Sharad Pawar and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. She also aims to attract investments for Bengal, news agency PTI reported. Banerjee, who was in Delhi last week, did not visit sonia gandhi after TMC’s equation with Congress party had turned tumultuous.
Mamata’s meeting with Thackeray and Pawar is an attempt by Banerjee to expand TMCs’ reach by aiming to spread its footprint and to form a coalition challenging the current government in the next 2024 general elections.
