Kolkata/New Delhi: For the first time since the bitter political rivalry in the Lok Sabha polls, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national capital on Wednesday.

Mamata will fly off to Delhi on Tuesday.

The Chief Minister's one-to-one meeting with Modi will take place at a time the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is issuing summons to former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in connection with the Saradha chit fund case.

In February this year, when the CBI had tried to reach out to Kumar at his residence, the officials of the federal probe agency were whisked away by the Kolkata Police. In a huge political drama, Mamata even staged a sit-in protest (dharna) on the same night against the CBI's move.

In the Lok Sabha polls, Mamata's Trinamool Congress lost 12 seats to have its tally coming down from 34 to 22.

On the other hand, Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) made a huge inroad in West Bengal by winning 18 seats, the highest ever by the saffron party at once-a-Left bastion.
