Today, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee made a public commitment that is to fight along with Congress and Left Front at National level to an overthrown ruling-BJP government at the centre. During the mega opposition rally, CM Banerjee said that “we will fight together with the Congress and the Left at the national level… we will fight in the state but not nationally.”
TMC had ended the 35-years rule of the Left-Front in West Bengal. CM Banerjee’s relations with the Congress state leaders- the party she got separated from in 1997- is still sarcastic.
Even today, CM Banerjee’s party faced attack from a senior state leader Adhir Chowdhury over Saradha chit fund scam, on which several of TMC leaders have been detained and her latest flashpoints with the centre.
Today, It was at the middle of CM Banerjee’s heated exchange with ex-Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi in Parliament. When the Bengal Chief Minister meet Sonia Gandhi in the Central Hall, she said that “we will remember”. In reply, Mrs. Gandhi said, “We are accusing each other but we are friends.”
Mamata Banerjee’s parliament visit had taken up most the morning. It makes sure that her visit to Delhi’s Jantar Mantar- where the opposition mega rally was taking place- did not clash with the visit of Left leaders A Raja and Sitaram Yechury. Both the leaders had shared the same stage with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is hosting the mega opposition rally in the National Capital and has addressed the people.
