West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has requested noted lyricist-poet Javed Akhtar to write a song on "Khela Hobe," her poll slogan. Akhtar and actor Shabana Azmi met Banerjee in Delhi on Thursday.

After the meet Akhtar spoke about a need for 'parivartan' (change), saying Bengal has always led "revolutionary movements".

"I feel there should be 'parivartan'. There are many tensions in the country right now, there is the issue of polarisation, many give aggressive statements... there are incidents of violence. It's a shame that Delhi witnessed communal riots. These things should not happen."
