Kolkata: Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee,
who is recovering from injuries she suffered in a road
accident last Monday, is likely to leave for Delhi tomorrow to
attend to business relating to her ministry in Parliament, an
aide of hers said on Tuesday.
"Discussions on demands for supplementary grants of the
Railway Ministry are scheduled for August 19 and 20 in the Lok
Sabha and Rajya Sabha respectively. And if these are listed in
the business schedules on those days, she will go to Delhi
tomorrow," Additional Private Secretary to the Railway
Minister Ratan Mukherjee told PTI here today.
Asked about Mamata`s present health condition, he said,
"The Railway Minister has not recovered fully yet. She also
has a throat infection."
The Minister was injured when on her way back from a
rally in the Maoist-affected Lalgarh, a truck rammed into an
escort vehicle in her convoy which, in turn, hit the
vehicle in which she was travelling on August nine.
Mamata has not stepped out of her Kalighat home
complaining of chest pain and breathlessness since last
Tuesday after doctors advised her rest, Trinamool Congress
BJP and Left parties had joined hands in Parliament
to corner the government on the Railway Minister`s speech at
her rally at Lalgarh in which she had demanded a CBI into the
killing of Maoist leader Cherukuri Rajkumar alias Azad.
While addressing the rally she had also urged the
Maoists to give up violence and come to the negotiation table.
