"Mamata sees conspiracy in everything. She had made similar allegations against the as well," Shah told a press conference when asked about Banerjee dubbing the ongoing agitation in Darjeeling "a deep-rooted conspiracy" supported by insurgent groups of the northeast and some foreign countries.

On BJP's stand regarding formation of smaller states, Shah said, "It is true that we are in favour of small states. Once we decide something about it, we will announce it."

Shah's comment about smaller states comes ahead of his meeting with chief tomorrow.
