"One Is To One": Mamata Banerjee's Template For 2019 General Elections

Mamta Banerjee to woo opposition leaders during her Delhi trip

Mamata Banerjee

West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday met leaders from the BJP ally Shiv Sena as well as MPs from several opposition parties in the national capital. "But she urged the NCP leader to also speak to other opposition parties to know their views", the leader, who did not want to be identified, said.

Though Banerjee is said to be favouring a Front without the Congress, she did say she was in touch with its president Rahul Gandhi.

Mamata's expected meeting with Sonia comes days after she met with Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao who is keen to form a federal front minus the BJP and the Congress.

Hitting out at the BJP over the unrest in the state, Banerjee said, "There is only party in the state which is creating such problem".

She asserted that all opposition parties should work together to oust the BJP.

In an interaction with journalists later, Banerjee said that no party is more communal than BJP.




She added that when political people meet then, of course, they will discuss politics, there is nothing to hide in that.

One person was killed and five police personnel were injured during a clash between two groups over a Ram Navami procession in Purulia district as sword-wielding BJP supporters came out in thousands to celebrate. "Whether one agrees with it or not, the message about demonetisation, GST and bank fraud has gone down to the people, just as whether one agreed at that time or not the message about PM Indira Gandhi's garibi hatao, nasbandi and Emergency had all gone down to the people". "I will meet her once she is fine". "But for the sake of the country we have set our target on Delhi, on Lal Quila (Red Fort)", Mamata had said earlier this month.

On 24 March, when Andhra Pradesh CM and TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu slammed as "a bid to spread lies" BJP president Amit Shah's letter questioning the use of funds released by the Centre, Mamata was again quick to respond.

A strident critic of the BJP-led central government and its policies, Banerjee had recently called for unity among all the anti-BJP forces to defeat the saffron party in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

Banerjee also met Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) parliamentarian Misa Bharti, daughter of RJD chief Lalu Yadav.

Following her meeting with NCP and RJD leaders, Mamata said the "Lok Sabha elections of 2019 will certainly be interesting".
