Mamata Banerjee faces police case after 'civil war' remark

I Don't Mind: Mamata Banerjee After St Stephen's College Cancels Event

The controversial National Register for Citizens resulted in frenzied protests in Parliament from the Opposition.

Barring the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Biju Janata Dal, leaders from nearly every opposition party, including the Congress, met with the TMC chief at Parliament House to extend their support in the fight against the NRC.

She also met Advani at his chamber in Parliament House.

When asked about Congress president Rahul Gandhi backing her as the Opposition's choice for Prime Ministerial candidate in 2019, the TMC leader said in a guarded response, "Our main aim is to defeat the BJP".

BJP that now holds 3 seats in West Bengal Assembly have managed to become as the sole opposition party in the state by dislodging the state. After meeting the Congress leaders, however, she blamed the BJP for the uncertainty over the exercise.

The names of over 40 lakh people did not figure in the list. The TMC, he said, was nervous due to the BJP's growing strength in West Bengal. "It is to clarify that on request, permission for meeting has already been granted", the Kolkata police said in a tweet. "We discussed how the opposition can together take on the BJP because it knows that it will not come back to power", she said.

"I am not BJP's servant to reply to any of their statements".

Asked about the prime ministerial candidate of the proposed anti-BJP front, she said, "it will be decided later".

"There could be certain circumstantial meetings with leaders of opposition parties when Mamata Banerjee would visit Parliament on August 1".

The West Bengal chief minister, who has strongly criticised National Register of Citizens (NRC) draft for Assam, has also sought an appointment with the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to discuss the issue. I want that this [BJP] government to go. "I am interested in seeing that all parties should work together".

The BJP president is likely to "expose" how Ms Banerjee is trying to play appeasement politics over an issue, which would weed out illegal migrants from Assam, who are using resources meant for Indians and could also pose a security threat to the country.

Banerjee met Congress leaders Ahmed Patel and Ghulam Nabi Azad, Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav, AIADMK leader M. Thambidurai, Kerala Congress-Mani leader Jose K. Mani, suspended BJP MP Kirti Azad, Shiv Sena member Sanjay Raut, 'DMK's Tiruchi Siva, Vijay Sai Reddy of YSRC Party, Misa Bharti and Jay Prakash Narayan Yadav of RJD. "I met him and inquired him about his health", she told reporters.
