CM Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said she has written to the Centre, urging it to allow poppy cultivation in West Bengal.

"Bengalis love posto...Why should it be cultivated in only four states? Why won't it be cultivated in West Bengal, despite it being on our menu every day," she asked in the Assembly.

She said not all poppies are drugs.
