Mamata's extraordinary decision for arch rival Modi
November 24, 2022  15:08
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said she will travel to New Delhi on December 5 to take part in the meeting called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on preparations for the G20 Summit.

This is probably the first time in years that Banerjee is attending a meeting called by the PM. The West Bengal CM and the PM have been at loggerheads during the Bengal elections last year with a lot of name-calling on both sides. 

 Banerjee, however, said she would be participating in the meeting in the capacity of Trinamool Congress chairperson, and not as the Bengal CM. 

"I will be travelling to New Delhi on December 5 to participate in the PM's meeting," Banerjee told reporters at the state assembly. 

India will host the G20 Summit in September 2023. The G20 or Group of 20 is an intergovernmental forum of the world's major developed and developing economies.
