New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee Tuesday met Home Minister P Chidambaram
and discussed with him the security situation in the state
ahead of the Assembly Elections early next year.

During the 30-minute meeting, Chidambaram and
Bhattacharjee are believed to have discussed Trinamool
Congress` demand for withdrawal of joint forces from
Maoist-hit Jangal Mahal area.

Both the leaders are understood to have discussed the
ongoing operation against the Maoists, sources said.

The chief minister has been strongly backing the joint
anti-Naxal operation launched by the Central and state forces
in Maoist-dominated areas of West Bengal.

The ongoing talks with Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha, which
has been spearheading a movement on the demand for a separate
Gorkha land comprising Darjeeling and some adjoining areas,
also figured in the meeting.
