Steer­ing Clear

India Today - - UPFRONT -

West Ben­gal chief min­is­ter Ma­mata Ban­er­jee was all set to ad­dress a rally and road­show in Puri on April 18 when just two days be­fore the event the state party unit an­nounced that her visit was for per­sonal rea­sons. Why? Ma­mata was ap­par­ently spooked by the en­thu­si­as­tic re­sponse to Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi in the BJP’s April 15-16 na­tional con­ven­tion in Bhubaneswar. With the CBI in­ves­ti­gat­ing the Narada and the Saradha scams, Didi might want to avoid an open con­fronta­tion with PM Modi just yet.
