Amid Opposition Unity Calls, Mamata Banerjee Meets Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi

After the meeting, Ms Banerjee said: “Sonia ji invited me for tea, and Rahul ji was also there. We discussed the Pegasus issue.”

Amid opposition unity calls in the run up to 2024 general elections, and after fighting each others’ parties in the recently held assembly elections, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Congress President Sonia Gandhi met today in Delhi.

After the meeting, Ms Banerjee said: “Sonia ji invited me for tea, and Rahul ji was also there. We discussed the Pegasus issue.”

“Why is government not giving answers on the Pegasus?” Ms Banerjee asked.

Describing her meeting with Gandhis as “fruitful”, Ms Banerjee said: “We talked about United Opposition and I think there will be a positive outcome. We all need to come together to defeat the BJP. I am nothing alone.”

Earlier in the day, Ms Banerjee raised the issue of Pegasus spying and said that her party is at the forefront of the battle over the issue. “All political parties in the opposition must work together. We will all sit together and work something out,” she said.

When asked who’ll be the face of the United Opposition, Ms Banerjee responded saying: “I’m not an astrologer… Someone will emerge , I will support”.

Ms Banerjee’s nephew and TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee is in the list of names that have surfaced in the Pegasus story, along with her Election strategist Prashant Kishor. Ms Banerjee has claimed that her phone has also been hacked and she has been unable to speak to anyone.

“Even if I’m not on Pegasus, if I speak to Abhishek Banerjee, or PK (election strategist Prashant Kishor) it is hacked. If one phone is hacked, all are hacked,” the TMC supremo said today.
