KOLKATA: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the country's largest blast furnace for steel production in at West Bengal today. The PM was in Burnpur on the day two of his visit to West Bengal.

"Today the Nation is getting this modern steel unit and I am very proud of this," the Prime Minister said in his address at IISCO, where he was accompanied by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

The bonhomie between the two leaders held a day after they sparred over the new social welfare schemes and later had an unscheduled one-on-one meeting.

"The Chief Minister said very good thing — that the Centre and state, the  more they work together, the more we will progress," PM Modi said. "The constitution has given federal structure, but there has always tension. The Centre thought it was special. I was a Chief Minister. I know. This attitude is not good."

In her address, Ms Banerjee said, "When we work together, the country progresses. The federal and central structure will both remain."

Reminiscing, she said, "In '98, when the Trinamool Congress supported the NDA government, we had got a Bengal package. We had demanded modernization of IISCO. Today it is done."

"India will not change without a 'Team India'. The Prime Minister and Chief Ministers are one Team that will take India ahead. The nation is bigger than any party," PM Modi said.
