New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee will meet UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and leaders from several other parties on Wednesday to invite them for a mega anti-BJP rally to be held in Kolkata on January 19 next year.
On Wednesday, Banerjee will visit Parliament where she is expected to meet several opposition leaders before she meets Gandhi. Later, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Adami Party chief Arvind Kejriwal is expected to call on her.
During her four-day visit to the national capital, Banerjee is reaching out to political parties to forge an anti-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) front for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
The Kolkata rally is expected to help Banerjee emerge as a pivot of opposition efforts to dislodge the Narendra Modi government.
