Mamata to meet West Bengal Forward Bloc chief today

Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee will meet West Bengal Forward Bloc chief Ashok Ghose ahead of an all-party meeting.

Kolkata, May 19 : Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee will meet West Bengal Forward Bloc chief Ashok Ghose ahead of an all-party meeting.

Mamata is likely to discuss ways to restore law and order in Nandigram, the one time venue of the Salim Group sponsored Special Economic Zone (SEZ).

Left Front chairman Biman Bose's failure to convince Mamata to come for an all-party meet has prompted Ghose to take the lead in persuading her.

Last night, Ghose called Mamata and expressed a desire to meet her.

"Ashok Ghose rang me up and wanted to come to my office. Since he wants to speak to me, I am going there," Banerjee said.

However, she declined to divulge the issues that would be taken up.

On May 9, Mamata had agreed to attend an all-party meet to discuss the Nandigram issue. However, the date and venue is yet to be decided.

This all-party meet will have different flavour, as Ghose and not West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee will convene it.

Mamata had earlier called for Central intervention in the issue.

On March 14, at least 14 villagers were killed in police firing as they were protesting against the acquisition of their farmland.

The State Government had allocated 14,500-acres (5,800 hectares) of farmland for the proposed SEZ.
