Modi lambasted at United India Rally

Modi lambasted at United India Rally

Issuing a war cry 'Delhi mein sarkar badal do' (change the government at the Centre), Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee on Saturday asserted that the "expiry date" of the Narendra Modi government was over and a united opposition will win in the coming general elections. Banerjee's United India rally is being seen as an effort to unite the Opposition against the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party at the Centre ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Karnataka counterpart and H D Kumaraswamy too attended.

"West Bengal is again witnessing a circus under Mamata Banerjee's rule similar to what Jyoti Basu had started", Roy tweeted.

Communist Party of India (Marxist) state secretary and politburo member Surya Kanta Mishra said, the TMC and BJP were two sides of the same coin and share several "undemocratic traits". Modi and Shah will get sleepless nights after this Opposition meet.

Politicians at the rally, whose organisers said was attended by more than a million people, said India's growth had slowed during Modi's term and their first priority was to defeat him, adding a replacement would be decided after the elections. "We will fight together to save the country and the Constitution". "We all have to fight together to ensure that they are defeated", Banerjee said.

The handset could be priced around Rs. 15,000 in India and it will be exclusively available through Amazon in India. Both the handsets will sport dual rear camera setup and out of the two one will be a wide-angle lens.

From Congress, Kharge and his party colleague Abhishek Manu Singhvi will take part in the rally.

Regional parties hold the key as they dominate the eastern states of West Bengal, Odisha, and the southern states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, which together send 161 members to the 543 constituencies of parliament's lower house.

In a huge show of strength, leading non-BJP leaders from around the countries gathered at Kolkata's Brigade Parade Ground on Saturday. He said national interest should take precedence over individuals. "I welcome all national leaders, supporters and lakhs of people to participate in today's rally to pledge to build a stronger, progressive and united India #UnitedIndiaAtBrigade".

"My actions against corruption made some people angry as I prevented them from looting public money".

Though both had sent senior leaders to represent their parties, their absence spoke out loud.
