Mamata’s speech in St Stephens cancelled, for this reason

the college has cited protocol issues as the reason behind asking her to cancel her planned address

In more political drama that has played out, it is now clear that the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will not address students at St Stephen’s College on August 1.

It is said that the college has cited protocol issues as the reason behind asking her to cancel her planned address.

She was earlier slated to address the students of the top Delhi University college.

Meanwhile, the Trinamool Congress sources said that the college had written to Mamata Banerjee earlier this week.

It is also speculated that the letter was meant to expressing regret for cancelling her planned interaction with students.

Mamata Banerjee will get to however address a meeting of Christian priests where after she will also likely visit parliament.

This is the third event where the chief minister was expected to attend but cancelled in recent weeks.

In June, Mamata Banerjee cancelled a visit to China.

In late August, she was to fly to Chicago to address a group on monks on the anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s historic Chicago address. The organisers, however, cancelled the event after a senior monk of the order died.
