West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is set to visit New Delhi on Monday, following the inaugural day of the state budget session, to participate in the meeting of the ‘one nation one election’ committee scheduled for February 6. Despite expressing her disagreement with the concept of simultaneous polls, Banerjee will engage in discussions with the committee. Last month, she conveyed her reservations about the idea, emphasizing its potential conflict with India’s constitutional arrangements. Banerjee’s Delhi visit occurs amid strains in her party’s relationship with Congress, as she hinted at the Trinamool Congress going solo in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in West Bengal.

While political dynamics evolve, the Chief Minister remains committed to representing the interests and perspectives of West Bengal, both within and outside the state.
