Mamata Confirms Trinamul Congress' Presence at Next I.N.D.I.A Partners' Meet

Mamata revealed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi earlier called her up

Kolkata: West Bengal chief minister and Trinamul Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee asserted on Wednesday that her party would attend the next I.N.D.I.A. partners' meet. She also revealed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi earlier called her up for the anti-BJP forum’s meet which however got postponed due to many opposition leaders’ unavailability.

Before embarking on a six-day tour to North Bengal, Ms Banerjee said, “I wasn't also informed (about the meeting) earlier. Day before yesterday, Rahulji phoned me. He told me about the meeting. I then said nobody however told me…so I didn't know and had my programme. Sometimes other CMs also remain busy and don't come to know about the programme 7-10 days ahead. But we will be meeting shortly…whenever they decide. So don't worry for that.”

On the present situation in South India, the TMC chief added, “There has been a heavy rain in Tamil Nadu. No CM can leave own state during a disaster. They have to stay there. We are concerned about TN. We have sent our condolences already and are ready to help if they need anything from us.”

In the morning, she posted on X, “My heart goes out to the disaster victims of Tamilnadu where the cyclone Michaung has taken a toll of 16 human lives and caused much damage otherwise too. My brother CM Stalin @mkstalin is leading the disaster management operations valiantly, and I express my solidarity and support to him and the distressed people of Chennai and Tamilnadu. Support and solidarity to the affected in Andhra Pradesh too.”
