West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi yesterday after a 15-month gap amid heightened political speculations, and urged him to revive certain stalled projects in her state.
Terming the meeting good, Banerjee said changing the name of the state topped her agenda. 
“We discussed changing the name of West Bengal to Bangla and he promised to do something about it.” 
The state has been trying to change the name primarily to get central assistance early as West Bengal’s turn comes right at the end.
The stalled projects taken up at the meeting related to railways and mining, and disinvestment of certain public sector units also figured at the meeting.
She also invited the prime minister for inauguration of a coal project in Birbhum. The chief minister carried a bouquet of yellow flowers and multiple packets of sandesh sweet for Modi from a well-known Kolkata shop.
Interestingly, during the heat and dust of the 2019 general elections, she had said, “I’ll send Modi roshogollas made of mud, pebbles so that he loses his teeth”.
