According to experts, the Central Government and West Bengal Government may come to a deal to resolve several issues which have been haunting both governments.
Saradha scam, a worry for Mamata
According to the reports, the ongoing investigations and arrests by CBI over Saradha scam created trouble for Trinamool Congress. Hence, Mamata's visit to New Delhi is important for her to make a raw deal with the Modi's government to wriggle out from the handcuffs of CBI .
The Economic Times quoted CPI(M) central committee member Mohammed Salim as saying, "Mukul Roy has saved himself from the CBI by singing tunes in favour of Narendra Modi and the BJP. Now Mamatadi is also following his footsteps in order to save her party from the CBI."
Mamata, who did not meet Modi ever since he became the PM, might have changed her mind following Modi's recent remark on CPM. The PM recently claimed that agriculture and other industries had suffered the most during Left's rule in West Bengal.
Supporting Modi's remark, Mamata too made similar statements and asserted that the loans were incurred by a profligate communist regime.
Didi always in war with Namo
The West Bengal CM had earlier turned down two specific invitations, one to Modi's swearing-in ceremony and the other to discuss the scope and formation of Niti Aayog.
Mamata Banerjee always criticizes Narendra Modi in her campaigning.
She, during one of her campaigns, had lashed out at Modi for his sectarian remarks. She also declared that he deserved to be dragged to jail. The Trinamool Congress supremo also called Modi as Mr Riot.
PM looks to tackle deadlocks
Mamata's decision of meeting Modi has been taken at the right time as the PM too has been cornered by several issues at the national politics. Beginning from Delhi poll debacle to current deadlock in the Parliament over Land Acquisition Bill, the alliance with PDP in Jammu and Kashmir and controversy over releasing of separatist Aslam, Modi government has been facing the heat.
The 'cornered' Modi might soften his stand on Mamata who may help him to build a strong road ahead for himself. On the other hand, Mamata also may help Modi to pull of a diplomatic coup in Bangladesh.
After discussing the contentious Teesta treaty and the subject threadbare with Sheikh Hasina in Bangladesh, Mamata has made her stand before the PM.
The West Bengal CM has been blocking the river-water sharing pact since 2011 which left the former prime minister Manmohan Singh in a very awkward and uncomfortable position.
However, the negotiation will be useful for both the sides. When Mamata falls in line, Modi can easily sign the Teesta accord next month and hold the trophy aloft for the world to see and hail him as a great statesman.
