Mamata Banerjee said that democracy must survive at all cost and added that her meetings with Sharad Pawar and Sonia Gandhi were good.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who was on an elaborate Delhi tour in which she met the top Opposition leaders, said that democracy must survive at all costs and her meetings with Sharad Pawar and Sonia Gandhi were good.
“I talked to Sharad Pawar. My Delhi visit was successful. We met for political purposes. The country’s democracy must survive at all costs. Our slogan is ‘Save Democracy, Save Country’,” said Mamata Banerjee on Friday, before concluding her Delhi visit.
Mamata Banerjee further said that she will be visiting Delhi every two months. The Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo said that she has met a number of Opposition leaders and added that the outcome of her Delhi visit has been good.
However, when asked about her 2024 ambitions, Mamata Banerjee refused to answer and instead said everyone’s motto should be to save the country.
“The country must develop, we want development for our people. Currently, inflation is at an all-time high with petrol, domestic gas prices soaring,” said Mamata Banerjee while also issuing a warning to the Centre about the imminent third Covid wave.
Mamata Banerjee, who was on a five-day Delhi visit, met Sharad Pawar, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi Arvind Kejriwal and several other Opposition leaders and held elaborate discussions. Mamata Banerjee even called on Union minister and BJP leader Nitin Gadkari.
Describing the meeting with Sonia Gandhi as “positive”, Mamata Banerjee said she discussed the political situation in the country as well as opposition unity with the Gandhis.
“It was a very good meeting,” the TMC supremo told reporters after the deliberations that lasted for around 45 minutes, adding that she is expecting positive results in the future.
“Soniaji had invited me for a cup of tea. We discussed the political situation in the country. We also discussed the issue of opposition unity,” she said.
