Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said that she would hold a review meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the cyclone Yaas-led destruction, during the latter’s visit to the state.
According to Mamata, the meeting will be held at Kalaikunda in Paschim Medinipur district on Friday.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is coming here after conducting a survey of cyclone-affected areas in Odisha. He will reach Kalaikunda via Digha, and take his flight to Delhi from there. The PM will hold a review meeting with me at Kalaikunda,” Mamata told the media persons at the state secretariat Nabanna.
The West Bengal CM, along with Chief Secretary Alapan Bandyopadhyay, is slated to undertake a survey via the aerial route of the cyclone-hit areas in Purba Medinipur, South and North 24 Parganas on Friday.
However, speculation is rife that Mamata may accompany Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the helicopter that is set to undertake the aerial survey. Nothing has been confirmer about the development.
PM Modi, who will also visit the cyclone-hit areas of Odisha, may announce some relief packages too.
