Kolkata, June 17: Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday, June 17 rushed to meet West Bengal Governor MK Narayanan who was reported to have been pressurised to tender his resignation. Ms Banerjee, who has been opposing Prime Minister Narendra Modi, met the governor in Kolkata.

Ms Banerjee's sudden meeting with Narayanan raised eyebrows as experts believe that it was her another move of opposing Modi government's decision of removing all UPA-appointed governors.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy claimed, "The governors should resign themselves. They were appointed by Sonia Gandhi and not on merit." However, there were no confirmed official reports which says that Modi government has been creating pressure on UPA-appointed governors to resign.
