West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata skips Visva-Bharati University’s event

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee skipped the Visva-Bharati University centenary celebrations which were also attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Trinamool Congress (TMC) claimed that Mamata Banerjee received a late invite.
However, the invite by Visva-Bharati University Chancellor Bidyut Chakrabarty to the Chief Minister is dated December 4.

The Prime Minister also addressed the event and said Visva-Bharati University presented a strong image of Indian nationalist sentiment during Independence with the guidance of Rabindranath Tagore.

Founded by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore in 1921, Visva-Bharati is also the oldest Central University in the country. In May 1951, Visva-Bharati was declared to be a Central University and an Institution of National Importance by an Act of Parliament.
