Mamata’s Oppn Rally: What Happened & What the People Have To Say

Rajiv Pratap Rudy

Addressing his party workers from Maharashtra and Goa, the Prime Minister said that opposition parties may have forged an alliance with each other, however, his party has established an alliance with the 125 crore people of the country.

Kolkata: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday vowed to take "cognisance" of MP Shatrughan Sinha presence at the united opposition rally, organised by TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata, against the Narendra Modi government in a run up to the Lok Sabha Elections 2019.

Claiming that the BJP's days at the Centre are numbered, she told the mammoth gathering that the "expiry date of the Modi government is here".

Who will be the prime minister will be decided after the polls, she said.

The massive rally with almost a million people held at Kolkata by Trinamul Congress chief and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee seems to have made Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister jubilant.

Mamata also claimed that the BJP does not respect many of its own senior leaders, and people like Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj and Nitin Gadkari are ignored in the saffron party. "I welcome all national leaders, supporters and lakhs of people to participate in today's rally to pledge to build a stronger, progressive and united India #UnitedIndiaAtBrigade", Banerjee, who is also the TMC chief, said in a tweet in the morning.

In yet another rude shock to Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, the Andhra Pradesh high court on Saturday rejected his government's petition seeking to issue a stay on the National Investigation Agencys investigation into the case of knife attack on YSR Congress party chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy at Visakhapatnam airport on October 25. "We must come together to safeguard India". Democracy, he declared, is going through testing times and the federal structure of the country is threatened. "The truth has to come out in open one day", the PM said. Besides the huge stages, 20 watchtowers have been erected and 1,000 microphones and 30 LED screens put up so that the spectators could see the leaders and hear them speak clearly.
