West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday demanded that the meeting of chief ministers next month should discuss only the "sensitive" National Counter Terrorism Centre issue and said she had written to the Prime Minister about it.
"Yes, I have written to the PM," Banerjee said. She said that the focus on the NCTC would be lost as ten items were listed on the agenda.

"NCTC is a very sensitive issue. It should be the only matter of discussion at the meeting so that all states can express their views properly and adequate interaction can take place. Other issues can be discussed subsequently," she said in her letter.

During an interaction with the mediapersons in Kolkata on Thursday, she had warned the Centre not to interfere in matters which were the preserve of states.

"It is not good to impose or bulldoze in a federal structure," she had said.
