West Bengal Chief Minister West Bengal will leave for a three-day tour of Birbhum, Malda and Purba Bardhaman districts on Monday to review the administrative works there, an official said.

She will also speak to Trinamool Congress workers during her tour, he said.

Banerjee will inaugurate the 46th Kolkata International Book Fair on Monday and then fly to Bolpur in a chopper.

On Tuesday Banerjee will visit Malda, where she is scheduled to hold a public distribution meeting, he said.

"The services provided under the 'Duare Sarkar' (government at the doorstep) scheme are supposed to be distributed by Banerjee in Malda. There is also a bicycle distribution programme for students scheduled there. After that the CM will be returning to Bolpur," the official said.

On Wednesday, Banerjee is likely to be present at another programme of the state government at Bolpur's Dakbangla Maidan, he said.
