Didi to meet oppn netas after PM talk | India News – Times of India


KOLKATA: Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has lined up a possible conclave of the top leadership of all major opposition parties at New Delhi’s Banga Bhawan on July 28, hours after her scheduled noon meeting with PM Narendra Modi.
This is in line with her request to NCP chief Sharad Pawar and Congress’s P Chidambaram to get the opposition together to work on the goal of forming a national front. Sources said TMC had now taken the onus of organising the meeting, given the short window before Mamata leaves for Delhi on Monday.
Trinamool national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee and poll strategist Prashant Kishor are believed to be leading the initiative to revive the opposition front. A party member said the presence of senior leadership of all opposition parties at Delhi’s Constitution Club for TMC’s July 21 virtual rally laid groundwork for the meeting. Mamata urged the opposition leadership “not to waste a single day” and set aside “self-interest for national interest”. Apart from Pawar and Chidambaram, the July 21 gathering for TMC’s virtual rally included Supriya Sule (NCP), Digvijay Singh (Congress), SP’s Ram Gopal Yadav and Jaya Bachchan, DMK’s Tiruchi Siva, RJD’s Manoj Jha and Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi among others. They are likely to be back for the proposed Banga Bhawan meeting.
