No dinner meeting with Mamata, says Sharad Pawar

New Delhi: There is no meeting, there is no dinner: NCP Chief Sharad Pawar on a question whether there will be a dinner meeting with West Bengal chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Delhi.

Earlier it was reported that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who arrived in New Delhi on Monday night and is scheduled to attend a dinner on Tuesday, hosted by NCP chief Sharad Pawar, where discussions regarding forging an anti-BJP front is to take shape ahead of the crucial 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The TMC supremo is also likely to call on UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and it remains to be seen if the visit serves as an ice-breaker between the two parties, especially after Banerjee skipped the dinner that was hosted by the UPA chief earlier this month. Mamata is also scheduled to visit Parliament on Tuesday and hold meetings with her party MPs.
