    KOLKATA: The US has agreed to treat West Bengal as a partner state for investment in the changed political situation, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said here today.

    "As per partner state, they will invest in West Bengal which was not taking place due to the political situation in the past," Banerjee told reporters after a 52-minute meeting with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    She also said that the issue of FDI in retail did not come up during the meeting.

    She said that the areas identified for US investment were IT, software sector, manufacturing, deep sea port, tourism, health care and education.

    "They will give full support for economic and business development," Banerjee said, adding that Chief Secretary Samar Ghosh and US Ambassador Nancy Powell would coordinate and monitor the progress.

    Describing her meeting with Clinton as "positive, constructive, creative and concrete", the chief minister said that Teesta water-sharing agreement and FDI in retail issues did not figure in the discussion.

    "There were no talks about Teesta (water-sharing with Bangladesh). There were no talks on FDI in retail. No nuclear or strategic issues were discussed," Banerjee told reporters in reply to a volley of questions.

    Clinton welcomed the political change in the state after 34 years and expressed her happiness at the implementation of programmes taken up.

    "We discussed many issues. She congratulated us. Clinton appreciated our passion of work and implementation of programmes."

    You bet America is thrilled. The last bastion of lal jhanda in India has been broken. US will "pay" anything to make it last.

    West Bengal has one of the most pathetic infrastructure in all of India, most strikes , dirty politics and common people gets sucked up in it, North-eastern part got Gorkhaland crisis.

    All is all, not a good place for doing business, and Hillary Clinton doesn't represent the views of private entities of her country. So she was just trolling with Mamata's sentiments. :troll:

    Well the alternative in WestBengal is worse. Hitler didi is the best of the worst. All women CM's and PM's and super PM's in India are Hitler only. Name one of them who isn't?

    She at least doesn't block FDI and other vital deal which is good for nation.

    Perhaps, we should advice her to consult doctor for her Statue Syndrome Disease :crazy:

    Well, even i oppose FDIs in retail to some extent. A large chunk of our population will loose their livelihood in urban areas.

    What we can opt for is selective FDIs in metros, not in small cities having population below 10 lakhs.

    look kirana stores are not going anywhere. they will continue to exist. and beleive you me our consumption is so high that we can take care of both for MNC giants and local kiranas.

    wat goes against local kiranas is that non of them show their sales properly. the concept of proper bill is virtually non existant. the buyers dont ask for it to get their stuff "cheap" and the kirana wallas use that opportunity to evade tax.
