of TMC national representative Derek O’Brien’s list.Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress on Tuesday brought out the requirements for getting a leader to lead the opposition block against< a href=http://www.financialexpress.com/tag/narendra-modi/ target=_ blank > Narendra Modi’s National Democratic Alliance next year. The statement came a day after Trinamool Congress offered a miss to a conference of opposition celebrations hosted by NCP chief Sharad Pawar, and a few days prior to a similar conference is arranged to be hosted by Congress Parliamentary Party leader Sonia Gandhi. Remarkably, just two leaders, TMC chief Banerjee and Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik are the ones who tick all the boxes of TMC nationwide representative Derek O’Brien’s list.Derek O’Brien said only an individual with impressive credentials can play lead function in 2019. He added that he/she needs to be the undisputed leader, the supremo of the party, have to have been CM, ought to have been in the Union cabinet, need to be currently running a state, and should have been a Member of Parliament for one or 2 decades.Congress president Rahul Gandhi has never been a Chief Minister, while Pawar is not a serving Chief Minister. Patnaik, who had actually served in Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s Cabinet for a quick, is the just one that fits the bill.The Indian Express reports that WB CM Banerjee,
who shares cordial formula with previous Congress employer Sonia Gandhi, has actually not even congratulated Rahul considering that his elevation. A number of sources have actually stated that Rahul is much junior from the leader of constituent parties of the UPA, adding, that the same factor may not go down well with the celebration. The TMC chief is likely to miss out on method conference and UPA chairperson’s dinner during the very first half of the spending plan session. Some sources have actually cited prior dedications as TMC chief’s need to avoid the meet.Banerjee is among the strongest regional leaders in the nation, who has been opposing Modi. Just recently, Banerjee had backed
Arvind Kejriwal amidst the AAP MLA disqualification row . In a tweet, Banerjee stated,”A Constitutional body can not be used for political vendetta. The 20 AAP MLAs were not even offered a hearing by the Hon EC. Most unfortunate. This breaks the concepts of natural justice.At this hour we are strongly with @arvindkejriwal and his group.” TMC sources said the CM has prior commitments for the very first 3 weeks of February. Thus, not only can she not belong of the strategy meeting throughout the first half of the Budget session, she is also unlikely to opt for UPA chairperson’s supper throughout the session. Just recently, Banerjee had lashed out at Modi calling him a ‘bizzare man’. She had also accused Modi federal government of asking business not to buy West Bengal.”You(the Centre) tell business not to purchase West Bengal. They say not to go to Bengal.
Our tasks are pending. Why these tasks are not being cleared?,” Mamata Banerjee had said at India Today Conclave. Banerjee further knocked Modi federal government for application of demonetisation. She said the plan was not targeted at wiping out black money and the Finance Minister was not even familiar with the decision.
