After posting a spectacular victory in Assembly elections, the TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee made some interesting comments. In an interview to a national channel, she said- ‘don’t ask me to talk about Sonia Gandhi’.
“I have lot more friends.. Kejriwal, chandrababu Naidu, Nitish Kumar, Lalu and others..” she added.
This triggered speculation that Didi is eyeing Delhi. She dropped hints of forging a grand alliance, a la Third Front, an analyst wondered.
Though Mamata enjoys a good personal equation with Sonia, this does not translate into a long time political friendship, sources said. Now that Congress forges alliance with the Left and also becomes principal opposition party in the state, there is not even a remote possibility of Congress-TMC bond at least in the context of 2019 General Elections.
