    "The resource is limited. The assessment helps us creating a roadmap on how best the resource can be allocated keeping special focus on less developed districts," Nabard's chief general manager in Kolkata Subrata mandal told ET. Nabard has unveiled the state focus paper for 2020-21 on Friday.

    West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Raj Bhavan here and urged him to reconsider the enforcement of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and explained her opposition to the new legislation, as well as to the proposed NPR and NRC.

    Taking a dig at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, he said the state government was not keen on implementing central schemes as it does not benefit "syndicates". Modi, after renaming the Kolkata Port Trust after Syama Prasad Mookerjee on the occasion of its sesquicentenary celebrations, said country's coasts were gateways to development.

    West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Saturday met PM Modi and urged him to withdraw contentious new Citizenship Act, prompting Left students activists to protest against her and demand an explanation for diluting the fight against CAA. Banerjee termed her meeting as a "courtesy visit" and said she raised issues regarding the due financial assistance for the state.
