Kolkata, May 7: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today said she wanted to know West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's "vision of the future".

"I want to know from the chief minister of West Bengal her vision of the future... I come with a belief that India can compete with anybody, anywhere," she said at a gathering at the La Martiniere school for girls here.

Ahead of her meeting with Banerjee, the state's first woman chief minister, Clinton said: "I know how difficult it is for women to be elected anywhere. When I meet a woman who has broken through those barriers, we share a common bond of having gone through the fire of electoral politics."

On her being thought of as formidable, Clinton said: "I don't think of myself as that but others do...it can be an advantage sometimes or a disadvantage."(IANS)
