New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee reached New Delhi on Friday and went straight to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence for a high-level political meeting. Mamata is in New Delhi for four days. Both the leaders will discuss various topics, including the GST dues for West Bengal, along with other issues.
Tathagata Roy, a former BJP state president and ex-governor of Meghalaya, challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter to convince the public that there was no “setting” between him and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee prior to the Modi-Mamata meeting in Delhi.
“Kolkata is agog with apprehension of a’setting’. Which means a secret understanding between Modiji and Mamata, whereby the thieves of Trinamool and/or the murderers of BJP workers would go scot-free. “Please persuade us that no such’setting’ exists @narendramodi @PMOIndia,” Roy tweeted.

As the Bengal chief minister is set to land in Delhi for her meeting with the PM later this week, the BJP’s Dilip Ghosh charged that Mamata Banerjee uses her meetings with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to signal that “a setting has been made.”
“These gatherings are used by Mamata Banerjee to indicate that a decision has been made.” “The Center needs to understand this and avoid falling for it,” added Ghosh.
“These are the baseless allegations made by our political opponents,” Trinamool Congress’s Sukhendu Sekhar Roy said, rubbishing the claims.
