Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has no immediate plan to visit Delhi
following Union Home Minister P Chidambaram`s letter to him
after the violence in Lalgarh.

Confirming receipt of Chidambaram`s letter which urged
Bhattacharjee to visit Delhi immediately rescheduling all
programmes, the Chief Minister`s office said "he has no
immediate plan to go to Delhi at least in a day or two".
