Mamata invites Kejriwal, Nitish for biz summit in January

Kolkata, Nov 23 (IANS) In yet another indication of growing bonhomie among politicians opposed to the Bharatuya Janata Party in the country, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has invited her Bihar and Delhi counterparts Nitish Kumar and Arvind Kejriwal for an forthcoming business summit.

“Both Kejriwal and Nitish Kumar have been invited for the Bengal Global Business Summit, beginning on January 7,” Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha member and spokesperson Derek O’Brien said on Monday.

Bhutan Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay and industry captains from from the US, China and Japan are likely to attend the summit.

The move is seen as yet another effort by Banerjee to form a federal front she has been advocating.

In September, Banerjee attended Kejriwal’s ambitious Chief Ministers’ Conclave on cooperative federalism in New Delhi.

Speaking at the conclave, Banerjee slammed the Narendra Modi government of “running a parellel government through the governors”.
