New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called on Congress president Sonia Gandhi here on Wednesday. This was their first interaction after the two parties fought as rivals in the Bengal Election 2021.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi too attended the talks that are significant amid opposition moves to join forces for a united fight in the build-up to the 2024 General Election.
“Sonia ji invited me for a cup of tea and Rahul ji is also there. We discussed Pegasus and the Covid situation in the country. We also discussed the unity of the opposition. It was a very good meeting, positive meeting. To defeat the BJP, everybody needs to come together. Everyone will have to work together,” Banerjee told the reporters following a 45-minute session with Sonia. Banerjee is in Delhi for five days, and has already met senior Congress leaders Kamal Nath and Anand Sharma on Tuesday. After the Gandhis, Banerjee also had an interaction with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
