TMC gets another ex-CM into its fold

0

West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee is fast emerging as the to-go person for all the anti-BJP and anti-Modi leaders across the country. She is literally displacing the Congress in emerging as the face of anti-BJP resistance. Even the dissidents in the Congress are flocking to her.

After netting disgruntled opposition in Tripura and winning over several leaders, including former CM Luizinho Faleiro, in Goa, the Trinamool Congress has trained its guns on Meghalaya. In a significant move, Meghalaya former CM and Congress leader Mukul Sangma and 11 other MLAs have joined the TMC on Wednesday. With this the total strength of the Congress Party in Meghalaya Assembly has come down from 17 to 5. Trinamool today is the main opposition in Meghalaya assembly.

With this, the Trinamool Congress has two former CMs in its fold. Faleiro is the former CM of Goa, which is going to polls early next year, and Mukul Sangma is former CM of Meghalaya.

Mukul Sangma was upset at party not consulting him while appointing the Congress whip. So, he rebelled against the high command. The TMC got in touch with him and invited him into the party.

Anti-Modi front: 3-phase plan for mobilising anti-BJP parties

0

Most opposition parties in the country are seriously thinking of defeating the Modi government even if it requires some compromises on their part. Last few weeks, AP CM Chandrababu Naidu has met national leaders and held talks but Mahakutami has not taken a final shape till now. Seeing the hurdles involved in the process, Naidu’s team has come to a conclusion to work on the Mahakutami in three different phases.

CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechuri has also indicated to Naidu how a full-fledged anti-BJP front is not possible prior to the general election and why there is a clear chance for most parties to join Mahakutami after the polls. Going by this, the anti-BJP leaders now expect that a beginning will be made for Mahakutami at the coming January 19 massive rally to be held by West Bengal CM Mamata Bennerjee in Kolkata.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi may not take part in this show because West Bengal Congress leaders do not want him to come as they are locked in a daily battle with Trinamool Congress there. After poll notification likely in February last week, there is a chance Mamata, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati join Mahakutami. Even if this is not possible, these parties will certainly come forward for an alliance after the polls as they will accept anybody but not Modi.
