Mumbai/IBNS: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is on an expansion mode for her party, on Tuesday evening met Maharashtra Minister Aaditya Thackeray and senior Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut.

Banerjee described Aaditya Thackeray as a future national leader and someone who can do good things for the nation, NDTV reported quoting sources close to her.

"We have to take on BJP aggressively and together," Banerjee was quoted by NDTV's sources at the meeting.

"The BJP is targeting us personally and we all need to fight back together," she also reportedly told Aaditya Thackeray. 

After the meeting, Aaditya Thackeray, tweeted: "This evening, @rautsanjay61ji and I called on West Bengal CM @MamataOfficial didi, during her visit to Maharashtra. The bond between CM Uddhav Thackeray ji and CM Mamata Didi is strong. Discussed various things including working together for tourism for our States."

Banerjee was supposed to meet her Maharashtra counterpart Uddhav Thackeray, which did not happen owing to the Shiv Sena chief's health condition.

"Yes, I was interested to meet Uddhav Thackeray but he is not well. He is in hospital and the doctor has advised him not to meet anyone because of infection and all these," Banerjee said earlier in the day.

"His son Aaditya will come to meet me in the hotel," the TMC supremo added.

Besides this, the West Bengal Chief Minister visited Siddhivinayak Temple and Police Memorial.

During her Mumbai trip, she is expected to meet Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar and entrepreneurs.
