West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, who was scheduled to return on Thursday to Kolkata from Siliguri, had to stay back here following cancellation of Jet Airways' Bagdogra-Kolkata flight due to pilots' strike, state government officials said.

Two Jet Airways flights, Bagdogra-Kolkata and Bagdogra-Delhi, were cancelled on Thursday following pilots' strike which entered the third day on Thursday, Bagdogra Airport Director K K Bhowmick said.

The chief minister, who visited the place accompanied by his wife on September 8, addressed a public meeting in connection with the Siliguri Municipal Corporation polls and also presided over a meeting of North Bengal Development Council.
