Congress Reacts To Mamata Banerjee Snub

New Delhi: Day after Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee snubbed the Congress, the grand old party clearly underlined on Thursday that it’s time to showcase opposition unity.

“UPA. Without the Congress, UPA will be a body without a soul. Time to show opposition unity,” Congress leader Kapil Sibal tweeted this morning responding to Banerjee’s “there is no UPA” remark post her meeting Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar in Mumbai.

It may be recalled that once the Trinamool Congress was part of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA), an alliance of parties including Congress that stayed in power at the Centre for 10 years from 2004 to 2014.

“We’ve tried to include them (Trinamool) in various socio-political issues where Congress made its name. Opposition should not get divided and fight amongst themselves, we’ve to fight against BJP together,” Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge was quoted as saying in the Rajya Sabha by NDTV.

“What UPA? There is no UPA now? What is the UPA? We will clear all issues. We want a strong alternative,” Mamata Banerjee had said on Wednesday.
