BJP National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya has mocked at the scheduled meet of the opposition today in New Delhi and said that they should first decide and announce their Prime Ministerial candidate before thinking of removing BJP-led Modi government.
In a major step towards the formation of an anti-BJP front, top leaders of opposition will meet in New Delhi to discuss forging a grand alliance to take on BJP from centre in the forthcoming 2019 Lok Sabha Elections.
On Sunday, Mr. Vijayvargiya said that “It’s really good to see opposition parties trying to forge an alliance to fight against us. But first, let them declare their prime ministerial candidate, then they should dream of fighting against us and ousting us.”
He continued, “We have Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Who is their PM candidate?”
Bengal’s Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has already reached the national capital to take part in the meeting.
Taking a dig at CM Banerjee, a senior BJP leader Mukul Roy said that she should clarify whether the CPI (M) and Congress, also part of the opposition meeting, were opponents or friends of TMC in Bengal.
Mr. Roy said that “When the TMC was born in 1998, Mamata Banerjee and her party used to say both the Congress and the CPI(M) are political opponents.”
“The TMC throughout its 20-year history has termed the CPI(M) as its number one political opponent. So now, it should clarify whether the two have become friends,” added Mr. Roy.
