Mamata Banerjee writes to PM on NCTC issue

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday wrote to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to focus only on the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) issue at the meeting of chief ministers in New Delhi next month.

"I have received a letter from the Union Home Ministry about the conference of chief ministers on April 16. But NCTC is just one of the 10 items on the agenda. In such a meeting, the focus of the NCTC will be lost," said the Chief Minister

"NCTC is a very sensitive issue. It should be the only matter of discussion at the meeting so that all states can express their views properly and adequate interaction can take place. Other issues can be discussed subsequently," she said.
