Mamata cancels meet with PM, says unwell

New Delhi, April 9 (IANS) West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Tuesday cancelled her meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, citing ill health, highly placed sources said here.

"She was supposed to meet the prime minister. But it was cancelled as she was not well," a highly placed source said.

Sources said her blood pressure had gone down so she had to cancel the meet.

The chief minister had earlier faced noisy protests and her finance minister Amit Mitra was heckled by dozens of Students Federation of India protestors when they were coming for a meet with Planning Commission Deputy chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia.

The protestors were demonstrating against the death of an SFI leader Sudipto Gupta April 2 allegedly in police custody.
