With her industry policy fetching only lukewarm response from investors so far, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will step out of her turf to woo the A-listers of the Indian industry in the Capital to seek investment for her state.
On Monday, Mamata will be meeting some of the country's biggest business tycoons to lure them into Bengal. In her special close-door meeting to be organised in Delhi, the list of the invited includes the likes of the Birlas, Mittals, Goenkas, Khaitans, Singhanias, Azim Premji and others. From Delhi alone, 41 invites have been sent to the Capital's bigwigs. Almost an equal number of invites has been sent to business leaders based elsewhere as well.
Sources said country head of HSBC, India, Naina Lal Kidwai, Bharti group's Rajan Mittal, Hero group's Sunil Munjal, Park group of Hotels' chairperson Priya Paul, Fortis group chief Shivinder Mohan Singh, CII chief Chandrajit Banerjee, FICCI chief Harsh Singhania are some of the notable confirmations for the event.
Tata Steel MD Hemant Nerurkar has received an invite, despite Mamata's troubled past with the group. PSU giants like GAIL, SAIL, Indian Oil, NTPC and others are also on the list. From hospitality, large manufacturing and IT to healthcare, Mamata's government has not left any sector untouched while sending out the invites, which are written by her Chief Secretary Sanjay Mitra.
