West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has sent a box of sweets to Home Minister Rajnath Singh on the occasion of Bengali New Year.
Minister for Urban Development Firhad Hakim, has been assigned with the job of giving sweets to the Home Minister at the airport.
The sweets, including Bengali specialty Sandesh, are being given as a courtesy to Rajnath Singh on Bengali New Year.
Rajnath Singh is visiting Kolkata just when the Bengali New Year starts.
This is the first visit of the Home Minister in this year and also after the arrest of TMC MP's in Saradha chit fund scam.
It is interesting to note at this point that Rajnath Singh will fly to Bhubaneswar for National Executive Meeting of the BJP and it is in Bhubaneswar that TMC MP Sudip Bandhopadhyay and TMC MP Tapas Pal have been kept in CBI custody.
In another development, Rajnath Singh today advised his BJP's West Bengal unit not to pay attention to the "false propaganda" by the Left Front and the Congress about any "secret understanding" between his party and the state's ruling Trinamool Congress.
