Amit Shah's 2019 war cry : BJP will win 22 seats in West Bengal

For tomorrow, Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has an invitation from the Shiv Sena to attend a programme at the Constitution Club.

With the CPM moving a notice of "no confidence" motion against the BJP-led NDA government on Tuesday, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said parties which may not agree with each other across the country today have a very strong feeling about the various malpractice of this government.

The Trinamool Congress chief is also likely to meet Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Mamata Banerjee is in Delhi and hectic political activity has started with an eye on 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

She also talked about her plans to meet sidelined BJP leaders - Shatrughan Sinha, Yashwant Sinha, and Arun Shourie and expressed her readiness in meeting the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) central leadership if she is invited for talks.

She asserted that all opposition parties should work together to oust the saffron party. "Will certainly go if they (Mayawati-Akhilesh Yadav) call us for a meeting to Lucknow", Banerjee said today (March 27). The meeting with Gandhi will be a personal visit, they added.

Asked whether she would be meeting Pawar, Banerjee said, "We (TMC) have 46 MPs (including 12 Rajya Sabha members) there".

"People are against the BJP".

The West Bengal chief minister urged all the political parties to come together to stop the winning streak of BJP in the elections.

TMC sources told ThePrint that, after the meetings in Delhi, Mamata will try to reach out to regional parties such as the TDP, a former BJP ally, and the BJD in order to explore the possibility of getting them on board the idea. "Let her recover. I do not want to disturb her", the report quoted her as saying.

The TDP has recently ended its four-year alliance with the BJP over its demand for special status for Andhra Pradesh.

The senior leader of Mr Pawar's Nationalist Congress Party had met Ms Banerjee in Kolkata.

She also met Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) parliamentarian K Kavitha, the daughter of Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, popularly known as KCR.

Following her meeting with NCP and RJD leaders, Mamata said the "Lok Sabha elections of 2019 will certainly be interesting".
