Kolkata: Steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal and his wife Usha met Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at her residence in Kolkata on Saturday.
The meeting lasted a little more than 30 minutes and sources said they discussed about investment opportunities in Bengal.
Mittal, the chairman & CEO of ArcelorMittal, was seen opening the boot of his car and taking out a bag while his wife hugged the Bengal Chief Minister before entering the bamboo-tiled house at 30-B Harish Chatterjee Road, Kalighat.
Mamata met Mittal on November 14 at his Kensington Palace Gardens residence during her visit to London. The CM was in the UK capital to unveil a commemorative blue plaque at Sister Nivedita's family home at Wimbledon.
Mamata invited the Mittals as special guests for the ‘Biswa Banga Sammelan’ to be held in January next year in the convention centre in New Town, Kolkata. Sources said Mittal promised Mamata that he will try his best to attend the event. They are believed to have discussed business matters in that meeting too.
ArcelorMittal has a Design and Engineering Centre in Kolkata’s electronics hub at Salt Lake’s Sector V area which provides consultancy services for steel companies.
The Mittals last came to Kolkata in July 7 this year to inaugurate ‘Lakshmi & Usha Mittal Foundation Building’ at St Xavier's University.
Mittal completed his graduation in Commerce in 1976 from Kolkata’s St Xavier's College. He left for Indonesia to expand his father’s steel business. His father ML Mittal set up a steel business in Kolkata in the 60s.
