Buddhadeb meets the Governor to discuss issues related to State

Special Correspondent

KOLKATA: West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee met the Governor, M.K. Narayanan here on Friday evening. The meeting, in which various issues related to the State were discussed, lasted nearly an hour, Raj Bhavan sources said.

The meeting was held at a time when the State is suffering a fiscal crunch, with a debt burden of about Rs. 1.92 lakh crore.

To contain this the government has come up with austerity measures, including a ten percent cut in non-planned expenditure except on salaries and pension of its employees, medicines and diet for patients in government hospitals and jail inmates.

The meeting is significant in view of the recent outburst of violence at Khejuri near Nandigram in the State's Purba Medinipur district. Earlier, appealing to the parties to eschew violence, Mr. Narayanan said politics of violence had no place in democracy.
