Mamata Banerjee writes letters to the opposition seeking alliance
On Tuesday, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress’s chairperson Mamata Banerjee, wrote a letter to all the opposition leaders and non-BJP chief ministers seeking an alliance against the BJP ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. In the letter, Mamata Banerjee expressed her concerns over the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Central Government’s attack on the democracy of India. She also expressed how the nation should get the ‘government it deserves.’ Earlier the Trinamool Congress’s chairperson questioned the Indian National Congress’s role as the opposition but contrary to that, her letter did reach the Congress leaders as well.
Some Congress leaders like Rajya Sabha MP and senior advocate Abhishek Singhvi supported and praised Mamata Banerjee while other leaders like Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury questioned Mamata Banerjee. On Wednesday, Congrees Rajya Sabha MP and senior advocate Abhishek Singhvi posted a tweet that stated that Mamata Banerjee is a pillar of the non-BJP opposition, which is the need of this hour. “Non-BJP opposition is the need of the hour. Mamata is a pillar of that. Each element has to unite synergically to prevent vote division, state by state, for 2024. BJP’s best wins never exceed 39% of the popular vote. Mamata and all others have to strain every sinew to unite the non-BJP space.” Abhishek Singhvi posted on Twitter.

On the other hand, Congress leader Adhir Chowdhury questioned Mamata’s stance and said that her statements change every day. He added that sometimes she urges everyone to unite against the BJP, sometimes she is against BJP and Congress.
“West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee sometimes says that everyone should get united against BJP, sometimes against BJP and Congress, and other times she says Congress should be finished. Her statements change day and night.” Adhir Chowdhury said.
K Chandrashekar Rao has given a clear call and has agreed to a united opposition but without Congress.
