On A Visit To The Capital, Mamata Applies For Press Club Membership
NEW DELHI : While on a visit to the Press Club of India (PCI) here, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday applied for the membership of the Club.
During an informal interaction with the office bearers of the Press Club of India, she recalled that she was editor of “Jago Bangla” , a Bangla publication of her party. She said that she was a life member of Kolkata Press Club as well and expressed a desire to be a member of the PCI as well.
The PCI Secretary-General Mohua Chatterjee provided her with a membership form which she signed and returned and assured of completing all other formalities during her next visit to the Capital.
The West Bengal Chief Minister said she would also like to release English translation of her book “My Journey” at the Club during her next visit to the PCI, probably on February 26 or 27.
She also addressed an impromptu press conference, taking questions on a wide range of issues from journalists. She came to the PCI after paying a courtesy call on the President Ram Nath Kovind. “For the first time I also visited the Mughal Garden in Rashtrapati Bhawan which is indeed very beautiful with a wide range of flowers in full bloom. Personally, I like the tulips there very much,” she added.
