Finance minister Arun Jaitley was scheduled to attend the 3rd edition of the Bengal global business event but did not show up on Friday. Sources say that he was believed to have been asked by the party high command to stay away.

After the arrest of two TMC MPs Tapas Pal and Sudip Bandyopadhyay, in connection with the Rose Valley scam the relationship between West Bengal and the Union government has worsened. Soon after the TMC MP arrest, the state government arrested BJP state leader Jayprakash Majumdar in connection with alleged bribery connection.

President Pranab Mukherjee, Governor Keshri Nath Tripathi, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, State Finance Minister Amit Mitra and industrialists Sanjiv Goenka, Sajjan Jindal and Kishore Biyani as well as cricketer Sourav Ganguly were present at the inaugural event on Friday.

The 2-day Bengal Global Business Summit (BGBS) is being attended by representatives from over 27 countries and 3,000 overseas delegates.
