Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is reaching West Bengal on Tuesday amidst discussion of opposition unity. He will meet CM Mamta Banerjee. It is being said that during this time there can be a big discussion on non-Congress opposition unity. The special thing is that both the leaders did not attend the swearing-in ceremony of the Congress government in Karnataka. Here, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar continues to meet big leaders.
A media report quoted sources in the Bengal government as saying that the meeting would be a step towards non-Congress opposition unity. At the same time, Trinamool Congress sources have told that this meeting can be helpful for a new formula, where all the regional parties will unite to put conditions before the Congress. Here, Kejriwal also appealed to the opposition parties to support the new ordinance of the central government.
Mamta Banerjee’s attitude towards Congress
After the defeat in the Karnataka assembly elections, CM Banerjee had talked about supporting the Congress, but he had also put a condition. He had said, “Wherever the Congress is strong on 200 seats, let them fight there and we will support them…”. But they also have to support other political parties…. If you want good things, you have to make some sacrifice.
According to media reports, a TMC leader said, “Mamata Banerjee has already said that the Congress should be in the role of an alliance partner, as they are pitted against the BJP in national politics.” But Congress says they will fight against us. It should not happen…. Tuesday’s meeting between Mamata Banerjee and Kejriwal could be helpful for a new formula where all regional parties will come together to put conditions before the Congress.
How far has the talk of opposition unity reached
Aam Aadmi Party chief Kejriwal will meet Nationalist Congress Party supremo Sharad Pawar and Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) chief Uddhav Thackeray after meeting in West Bengal’s capital Kolkata. It is reported that during this time they will demand support from these leaders against the ordinance. Recently, CM Nitish also met Banerjee. Earlier, Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav has also met the TMC chief.
