Mamata in Delhi to attend Pawar dinner

In further boost to the talks of forming an anti-BJP front, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday met leaders from Shiv Sena - an NDA ally - as well as MPs from several opposition parties including NCP and TRS, led by K Chandrashekhar in the national capital. "We are all friends", she said.

Banerjee arrived in New Delhi on Monday night and is scheduled to attend a dinner on Tuesday, hosted by the NCP chief today, though he has denied it.

CM Banerjee is seen as a key competitor in the possible alliance of non-BJP political parties ahead of the next Lok Sabha polls.

By the time she ended her rounds for the day, the Trinamool Congress chief said the Mayawati-Akhilesh Yadav format could be replicated in many other states. "It should be one fight", the TMC chief told reporters.

"We want all opposition parties to work together. I was a part of that government, even now there are some good people but they are sidelined".

Addressing a press conference in the national capital, Mamata said, "Yes, Sonia Ji is unwell right now and recovering". No one will be allowed to organise processions in the area of another community and murder a person, she said. "But for the sake of the country we have set our target on Delhi, on Lal Quila (Red Fort)", Mamata had said earlier this month.

The BJP has been criticised by current Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee saying that the ruling NDA government led by Narendra Modi has a huge difference with the former NDA government led by late Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

"This is a result of the competitive communalism that is being practiced by TMC and BJP in Bengal in order to create communal polarization", he said adding that the TMC is pursuing the politics of appeasement of minorities and the trying to fan majority communalism. We will meet her once she is fine. She is expected to meet Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday.

The details of the meetings, which come at a time when opposition parties as well as former government ally Telugu Desam party (TDP), have come together to move a no confidence motion in the Lok Sabha, was not shared.

On 24 March, when Andhra Pradesh CM and TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu slammed as "a bid to spread lies" BJP president Amit Shah's letter questioning the use of funds released by the Centre, Mamata was again quick to respond.

Banerjee also met Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) parliamentarian Misa Bharti, daughter of RJD chief Lalu Yadav.
