Mamata keeps mum on opting out of Dhaka trip

Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, Sep 5: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today (Sep 5) refused to say anything on her opting out of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's two-day visit to Bangladesh from Tuesday, Sep 6.

"I have nothing to say," an official told reporters on behalf of the chief minister.

She said last night that she was not going to accompany the PM to Bangladesh. Banerjee is believed to be sore with the final draft of the treaty on the sharing of Teesta waters with Dhaka which, she felt, would hurt West Bengal''s interests.

She was scheduled to join the PM's entourage along with chief ministers of Assam, Tripura, Mizoram and Meghalaya in Dhaka.
