New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi — the first proper meeting between the two after Banerjee became the state’s chief minister for a straight third time — on Tuesday.

Mamata Banerjee called it a “courtesy” meeting and told reporters that she raised the issue of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and also sought more vaccines and medicines for her state.

“During the meeting, I raised the issue of Covid and the need for more vaccines & medicines in the state. I also raised the pending issue of the change of name of the state. On this issue, he said, “He will see,” Banerjee was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Congress leaders Kamal Nath and Anand Sharma met the Trinamool Congress supremo earlier in the day.

“I appreciate her for how she fought the recent polls and won. She has come to Delhi for the first time after victory, so I came and had tea with her,” Sharma said after the meeting. Banerjee, who has been in the Delhi since Monday, is also expected to have meetings with Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday and other opposition leaders Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar.
