Mamata pitches for common front against BJP

Raniganj

"We are all friends", she said.

After a day of hectic parleys in Parliament where she spent about four hours on Tuesday, the TMC chief said, "All of us are of the view that we should work together".

Mamata, who was in New Delhi to meet NCP chief Sharad Pawar and other opposition leaders, said, "There is a huge difference between NDA of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee and now".

It is interesting to note that the Shiv Sena, which is now an ally of the BJP in the NDA government, had said in January this year that it would contest solo in 2019. "It should be one fight". The way Opposition leaders are being harassed is proof that the BJP wants to annihilate us. "I have worked as an MP for seven terms and I know many leaders and MPs of several political parties". Issues like demonetization, GST, bank fraud have affected people even at the grassroot level.

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.

The details of the meetings, which come at a time when opposition parties as well as former government ally Telugu Desam party (TDP), have come together to move a no confidence motion in the Lok Sabha, was not shared.

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