Did Lord Ram ask anybody to rally with arms? asks Mamata


Mamata will on Tuesday attend a dinner hosted by NCP chief Sharad Pawar where the possibility of working out a united front is expected to be discussed.

NCP leader Sharad Pawar, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Dinesh Trivedil during a meeting at NCPoffice at Parliament in New Delhi on Tuesday.

"If anybody from the police force does any kind of understanding to overlook the issue, I will take action against them", Banerjee said during the district level administrative meet in South 24 Parganas.

There also have been efforts to form a third front of parties that want to be equidistant from both BJP and Congress.

Banerjee was belligerent against the BJP which, she said, ran a "dictatorial, anti-people and communal government".

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".

After backing Congress MP Abhiskek Manu Singhvi's Rajya Sabha election from West Bengal last week, Banerjee's message seemed clear that all opposition parties "including Congress" should do business together to defeat the BJP, with the underlying message to the Congress that it should also cooperate in the process rather than trying to lead it.

"People are against the BJP". We should help the strongest opposition party in state to fight the BJP. "If such a meeting is called by Mayawatiji and Akhilesh Yadav, we should all go there. Let Akhilesh call a meeting in Lucknow, we are ready to meet them in Lucknow itself".

On her terms with the Congress, the veteran leader said, "Soniaji is unwell right now and recovering, will meet her once she is fine. We celebrate all kinds of festivals and rituals starting from Durga Puja to Ramadan and Christmas but always maintain peace and harmony", she claimed.

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.

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.
