West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee met home minister Amit Shah at Delhi’s North Block on Thursday a day after she called on prime minister Narendra Modi, reports India Today.

This is the first time Mamata Banerjee is meeting Amit Shah after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and he took over as the home minister in the second term of the Modi government.

It is not known yet what is on Mamata’s agenda for the meeting with Amit Shah. On Thursday, she met Modi and discussed a host of issues, including the proposal to change West Bengal’s name to Bangla.

Mamata and Amit Shah have been at loggerheads for long with the two party chiefs attacking each other on numerous occasions.

Ahead of Thursday’s meeting, Amit Shah proposed on Wednesday that there is need for a nationwide NRC like that in Assam to throw all illegal immigrants out of the country.

Mamata Banerjee, on the other hand, has issued repeated warnings to the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Modi government over any such actions on West Bengal.
