“I go to New Delhi very rarely.This is a routine work. This time I am going to talk about funds that are due to West Bengal. I will also highlight issues like change of West Bengal’s name. “Will also talk about matters like merger of public sector banks, issues with Air India, BSNL, Railways where there are several problems.
