Naidu visited Banerjee on Monday at the West Bengal state secretariat. Chandrababu Naidu, who took the initiative to gather Opposition leaders to attend the Delhi meeting, flew down to Nabanna along with other Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leaders like CM Ramesh, YS Choudhary, Kala Venkat Rao and K Rammohan Rao to meet Banerjee and others.
Mamata Banerjee and Chandrababu Naidu then addressed a joint press conference after the brief meeting, in which Naidu attacked the Modi government over the current RBI crisis.
Naidu, who was in Kolkata to persuade Banerjee to join the Opposition leaders for the joint meeting, said, All have decided to come for the January 19 meeting.
Though Naidu said that “all” leaders had agreed to meet, he refused to specify who were these leaders. Sounding a note of unity, Naidu refused to name any leader as the face of the mahagathbandhan for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
He said, We met Arvind Kejriwal and we went to Karnataka together. All leaders are faces of the mahagathbandhan. We are working and speaking together.
He said, All important institutions, from RBI to ED, are under threat. Democracy is in danger. We have to be together in such a scenario.
Earlier on Friday, Andhra and Bengal withdrew their general consent on allowing the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to conduct raids or carry out investigations in the state.
Banerjee agreed with Naidu when he withdrew his government’s consent and followed suit. Banerjee and Naidu discussed the CBI issue on Monday.
