After this meeting of Ganguly and Mamta, the round of discussion has started in the political corridors.
This meeting of Mamta and Sourav Ganguly is being described as very important. In the recently held Bengal elections, BJP was trying to include Sourav Ganguly in its party. At that time, Ganguly had clearly refused to enter the field of politics. BJP wanted Sourav Ganguly to contest against Mamata Banerjee.
Close relationship between Ganguly and Mamta
