Mamata in Delhi, meets leaders to forge anti-BJP front

Efforts to build an anti-BJP front ahead of the 2019 general elections are expected to gather pace with West Bengal chief minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) president Mamata Banerjee beginning meetings with opposition leaders in the capital Tuesday.

"If Akhilesh and Mayawati call a meeting in Lucknow, we will all go".

At the Congress' key meeting earlier this month, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi had recalled the change in the party's approach towards coalitions.

During her visit to the Parliament premises, among others, RJD leader and daughter of Lalu Prasad Yadav, Misa Bharti, TRS leader K Kavitha and TDP leader YS Chowdary met her.

Banerjee later said that she "respects" Shiv Sena. Senior Congress leader Veerappa Moily had last week said that any attempt form an anti-BJP front without Congress is "not desirable".

"When political people meet then, of course, they will discuss politics, there is nothing to hide in that". We should help the strongest opposition party in the state to fight the BJP.

Neymar demands pay rise for him to stay at PSG
Speculation has mounted that Neymar is unhappy in Paris and there have been widespread reports linking him with Real Madrid. But the Brazil worldwide is unhappy at PSG and is aware that Real Madrid are willing to push for his signature this summer.

Giving an example of Gorakhpur and Phulpur victories against the BJP by the BSP and the SP coming together, Mamata Banerjee said, "Mayawatiji and Akhileshji are strong leaders in UP and if they come together none else can do anything". Banerjee is also scheduled to attend a dinner hosted by Pawar today, where discussions regarding forging an anti-BJP front is likely to take shape.

Mamata also said she would like to meet Congress leader Sonia Gandhi before leaving for Kolkata if there is an opportunity as she is not keeping well.

One person was killed and five police personnel were injured during a clash between two groups over a Ram Navami procession in Purulia district as sword-wielding BJP supporters came out in thousands to celebrate. The way Opposition leaders are being harassed is proof that the BJP wants to annihilate us.

Yes, Sonia ji is unwell right now and recovering, will meet her once she is fine.Tomorrow will meet Shatrughan Sinha ji, Yashwant Sinha ji, and Arun Shourie ji.

Banerjee's meetings on Tuesday came at a time opposition parties as well as former BJP ally Telugu Desam party (TDP) have come together to move a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha. "The BJP is scared that many of their own MPs will not vote", she said. Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MP Anubhav Mohanty and his wife also called on Mamata Banerjee.

There have been suggestions that the opposition parties should put up common candidates against the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
