Uniting opposition? Mamata Banerjee to meet Sonia Gandhi, Sharad Pawar in Delhi

The TMC leader said that the BJP has lost all credibility and there is an anti-BJP wave in the country.

Mamata's expected meeting with Sonia comes days after she met with Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao who is keen to form a federal front minus the BJP and the Congress.

She asserted that all opposition parties should work together to oust the saffron party. Banerjee, who is in Delhi for three days, had an hour-long meeting with Pawar and other NCP leaders at his office in Parliament.

"There is no meeting, there is no dinner", news agency ANI quoted Pawar as saying.

TMC chief Mamata Banerjee met NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut and RJD MP Misa Bharti in New Delhi.

The Sena, though a part of the ruling NDA, has been critical of Maharashtra and central governments. Party's national secretary Rahul Sinha was also seen brandishing a weapon at a rally. It should be a one-to-one fight against the BJP. "I think we need to support whoever is strong in whichever region to drive out the BJP". "In UP, if Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati stay together nothing can beat them. Let us approach other political parties", Mamata had said at that time.

Supreme Court turns down GOP request to block Pennsylvania congressional map
The old map was an egregious attempt to predetermine congressional elections, which is why they ruled the map as unconstitutional. Monday's decision comes in a federal case brought a month ago by eight sitting Republican congressmen and two GOP state senators.

Raut denied that Shiv Sena was joining any front, but said that the Shiv Sena and Banerjee have "a very warm" relationship and there were certain things which Banerjee wanted to convey to Uddhav Thackeray.

On the recent controversy relating to Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra's impeachment proposal, Mamata said while she can not ignore what the four Supreme Court judges have alleged, she will wait for other parties to decide."I can not ignore what four Supreme Court judges have said, but let other parties discuss on CJI impeachment".

"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.

The West Bengal CM was the first leader to speak on Bahujan Samaj party (BSP) chief Mayawati's decision to continue the alliance with the Samajwadi Party (SP), aimed at containing the BJP, despite the setback in the recent Rajya Sabha election. She further said that the alliances depend on both parties.

Hitting out at the BJP over the unrest in the state, Banerjee said, "There is only party in the state which is creating such problem".

"The situation will evolve in the coming months for assembly and Lok Sabha polls". Law will take its own course. "And opposition will be starting with 69 per cent", Mr Shourie, who will be meeting Ms Banerjee tomorrow, told NDTV last week.
