There Is No UPA: Mamata Banerjee

Mumbai: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee indicated on Wednesday that she is up for a fresh opposition line-up ahead of the next general elections. Banerjee made it clear that the main opposition Congress is not fighting against “the ongoing fascism”.

“What is UPA? There is no UPA,” Banerjee was quoted as saying by NDTV after her meeting with Nationalist Congress (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar in Mumbai on Wednesday afternoon.  Pawar, a key interlocutor for the opposition before the 2019 elections, spelt it out: “Template for 2024”.

“A firm alternative course should be made as nobody is fighting against ongoing fascism. No one can do this alone. Whoever is strong in whichever place has to fight. Sharad ji is the senior-most leader and I came to discuss as a political courtesy,” Banerjee said.

“I agree with whatever Sharad ji said. We need a strong alternative that can fight. If someone does not want to fight, what can we do? We want everyone to fight together on the field,” Banerjee said when asked about an alternative without the Congress.

Quizzed on whether Pawar should lead the UPA, the West Bengal CM shot back: “What UPA? There is no UPA now? What is the UPA? We will clear all issues. We want a strong alternative.”
