“Not An Astrologer”: Mamata Banerjee On Who Will Lead United Opposition

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”.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is on three-day visit to the national capital, today skipped the opposition meeting about Pegasus scandal. However, at a press conference later, she again 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.

Earlier on Tuesday, Mamata Banerjee met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his residence in the national capital. This was the first meeting between the two leaders after a heated assembly election in the state that saw both of them taking swipes at each other frequently.

Mamata Banerjee, after meeting the PM, told reporters that there should be a Supreme Court-monitored inquiry into the Pegasus scandal that had revealed that opposition leaders, two union ministers and 40 journalists were possibly spied on by an Indian client of Israel company that sells the spyware only to governments.
