Mamata keeps mum on opting out of Dhaka trip

West Bengal CM refused to say anything on her opting out of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s two-day visit to Bangladesh from Tuesday.



Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata
Banerjee on Monday refused to say anything on her opting out of
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s two-day visit to Bangladesh
from tomorrow.

"I have nothing to say," an official told reporters on
behalf of the chief minister.

She said last night that she was not going to accompany
the PM to Bangladesh.

Banerjee is believed to be sore with the final draft of
the treaty on the sharing of Teesta waters with Dhaka which,
she felt, would hurt West Bengal`s interests.

She was scheduled to join the PM`s entourage along with
chief ministers of Assam, Tripura, Mizoram and Meghalaya in
Dhaka.
