West Bengal Chief Minister said on Wednesday that during her meeting with Prime Minister she would raise the state's crisis and erosion problem, seeking more funds to tackle them.

Before leaving for New Delhi, the chief minister told reporters, "If I get an appointment either today or tomorrow, I will discuss the erosion problem and will ask for funds to deal with the problem of river erosion."

Banerjee last week met Congress president in Delhi to discuss the strategy for presidential polls.
