West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee is heading to Delhi today for her first visit since victory in Assembly election. This comes after she eyed to unite opposition parties ahead of the 2024 general election.
Mamata is expected to host tea for opposition leaders at 3 pm on July 28, possibly at the home of her nephew, and Trinamool Congress MP and General Secretary, Abhishek Banerjee.
The Chief Minister had issued an appeal for unity on July 21 in a speech screened in Delhi that was attended by top leaders - including the Congress' P Chidambaram and NCP chief Sharad Pawar.
The guest list for this week's tea party is now fodder for speculation, but could include leaders from the eight parties that attended the July 21 event hosted by the Trinamool at Delhi's Constitution Club on the occasion of the party honouring Shahid Diwas, or Martyrs' Day.
