Mamata Eyes Bhutan, Likely to Visit in October


Kolkata: Eying to improve ties with neighbouring country Bhutan, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee is expected to visit Bhutan in between October 5 to 7. Mamata had declared in July about her intention to visit Bhutan following an invite from Bhutan government which was handed over to the CM by Bhutan’s consul-general in Kolkata, Dashi Karma Tsering Namgyal.

Nabanna sources said Mamata is likely to leave for Bhutan on 5 October and return on 7 October. An intimation in this regard has been sent to the prime minister’s office of Bhutan. Apart from portraying the state as a potential investment hub, discussions are likely to be held on improving business relationship between Bengal and Bhutan.
