Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi tried to woo West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee by indirectly hitting out at the previous Left government in Bengal. He said that Bengal has suffered a lot due to 32 years of misgovernance, and added that, 'I believe steps are being taken in the right direction in Bengal but it will take many years.' He said Bengal was also being discriminated against just like Gujarat. Applauding the state of Bengal for its intellectual prowess, Modi said he will learn a lot from the state and will implement those things in Gujarat.
