The West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said the Trinamool Congress party would support the central government on GST in parliament but it had “some” reservations about the Land bill. “After all, the land movement had begun from West Bengal,” she reminded adding that the West Bengal government was always in favour of a healthy federal structure.

She was speaking to the media persons after the Bengal Global business summit which ended on Saturday in Kolkata. Media representatives asked Mamata Banerjee if the business summit was an occasion to improve ties between the central government and the state as a large number of BJP government ministers turned up and praised the chief minister.

Mamata Banerjee said: “I always believe in the federal structure. It is like a parent-child relation”. “Politics has a different destination and business and governance have a different destination. We will continue to support federalism,“ she added.
