Mamata Banerjee, Chief Minister of Bengal reached Delhi on Monday. This is her 5-day trip to the national capital. During her visit, she is expected to meet opposition party leaders. She is likely to meet the president of India and PM Modi on her trip.
The meeting with the opposition parties is significant in paving a way for the 2024 General Election. This is her first trip to the national capital Territory after her victory in the recent assembly election in West Bengal. Her victory over BJP highlighted her significance as a political figure against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) Chief Mamata Banerjee is likely to meet PM Modi on Friday.
Sources reported that Indian National Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi has invited WB CM. The monsoon session in the parliament saw opposition raising dissent against the three farm bills and the newly emerged Pegasus Controversy. Gandhi’s meeting with Banerjee will also focus on the Lok Sabha election which is due after three years.
Last week the WB Chief Minister was named as the leader of the Trinamool parliamentary party. She will play a pivotal role in the coming national elections. Her massive win against BJP in West Bengal highlighted her prominence directing her way beyond the politics of Bengal.
On July 21, 2021, Mamata Banerjee in a virtual speech appealed to all the opposition parties to form an alliance. She said that there is a need for such an alliance against the BJP. All the opposition parties should bury their differences. Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, Congress leader P Chidambaram, Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi, and Sanjay Singh from Aam Aadmi Party were present at the online meet. Various other opposition party representatives also attended Banerjee’s address.
