Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik will not meet his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee who is coming to the state today on a two-day visit.
“There is no plan to meet West Bengal CM during her visit to the state,” said Patnaik while speaking to the newsmen in Bhubaneswar today.
Earlier, speculations were rife that the West Bengal CM is likely to meet Patnaik during the visit and discuss the political situation in the country.
Banerjee, who is slated to arrive in the state this evening, will meet her party leaders and visit the Lord Jagannath Temple in Puri.
Besides, she will meet her party MPs, who are either in jail or hospital in connection with the chit fund scam and also try to revamp and rejuvenate the Trinamool Congress (TMC) cadres in Odisha.
