Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister of Bengal Mamata Banerjee are meeting in Delhi. Many topics are anticipated to come up during the conversation, including the long-overdue payments for the Goods and Services Tax and other outstanding obligations under the Central Programs that her government has been pressing for. Bengal has regularly charged the BJP-controlled Center with holding up payments of GST owed to states, particularly those governed by the opposition.

Amit Mitra, the chief advisor to the chief minister of West Bengal, said that the Center has not paid integrated dues to the states totaling 27,000 crore in June.

The encounter, which took place just days after the Enforcement Directorate detained Partha Chatterjee, has, nevertheless, generated a lot of rumours. The minister was considered to be a close confidant of Ms. Banerjee and was detained after large amounts of cash were discovered at the home of his assistant Arpita Mukherjee.

The meeting has become a subject of contention in Bengal between the BJP and the in power Trinamol Congress. Dilip Ghosh, a state-level BJP politician, has been called into custody by the Trinamool for making what they deemed to be disrespectful remarks about Ms. Banerjee and her family.

During her four days in Delhi, Ms. Banerjee will probably meet non-Congress Opposition figures. She will see President Droupadi Murmu later today.

The chief minister will be present at a Niti Aayog meeting on August 7 that will be presided over by PM Modi. At the meeting of the governing council, topics pertaining to agriculture, health, and the economy will be covered.

Last year, Ms. Banerjee missed the council meeting. She is anticipated to bring up federalism issues and the non-payment of GST dues at this year’s gathering.
