West Bengal CM Mamata Banarjee and Anna Hazare are scheduled to meet in Delhi this 18th to discuss and decide on campaigning collaboration in future general collections. Mamata has reportedly accepted to give an affidavit to Hazare accepting that she would resign from her post (as PM) if she fails to implement the 17 point agenda Hazare has sent to all major political party leaders earlier. Mamata is the only leader who has responded to Hazare, he said.
“We need a simple Prime Minister like Mamata Banerjee. I will campaign for her and appeal to voters to elect her,” Hazare said after an hour-long meeting with Trinamool Congress national general secretary Mukul Roy at Ralegan Siddhi on Thursday.
“Mamata stays in a 12 X 8 ft. home. She still wears slippers and simple saris. She doesn’t avail an (official) car and takes no salary. She offers a ray of hope and if people stand by her, then the country will change in no time,” he said. “I had earlier sent a 17-point agenda to all parties. Only Mamataji replied. She agreed to give an affidavit to people. I will go to Delhi on February 18. We will have a detailed discussion and the path ahead will be decided then.”
