According to sources in the state secretariat Nabanna, the CM and PM meeting is scheduled at 4:30 pm on Wednesday.

"I go to New Delhi very rarely. I do not go anywhere because I have some responsibilities here. We have to go to New Delhi for some administrative reasons because it is the capital, the Parliament is there, the President, Prime Minister all stay there that's is at times we need to go there. This is a routine work," the TMC supremo said.

Banerjee earlier in the day greeted the PM on his 69th birthday.

Sources said that the Bengal CM was likely to meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday.
