Mamata Banerjee meets Arvind Kejriwal in Delhi
West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee called on her Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday evening. The Trinamool Congress supremo's visit to Kejriwal followed her meetings with Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi earlier in the day and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday.
Mamata Banerjee is in the national capital for the past five days, during which she met a host of opposition leaders, including Congress' Kamal Nath and Anand Sharma on Tuesday.
Following her stellar victory in the assembly elections in West Bengal, where she faced the Bharatiya Janata Party in a do-or-die battle, Mamata Banerjee emerged as a prominent figure among the opposition camp's attempt at stitching together a unified anti-BJP coalition ahead of the 2024 general elections.
The talk of an anti-BJP front gained pace after leaders of various political parties and prominent individuals gathered at NCP chief Sharad Pawar's New Delhi residence last month.
Mamata avoided comments on leadership queries and said the opposition parties would convene and decide on the prime ministerial face against PM Modi.
“Poore desh me khela hoga. It's a continuous process... When Modi will fight the next election, it will be with the country", she said earlier in the day.
'Khela hobe' was the catchphrase of Trinamool Congress during the West Bengal assembly elections.
Speculations are rife over Mamata being considered as a potential face of united opposition parties against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the 2024 elections.
