You swap aspects and then tell us about principles? This is the identical Mamata who became part of the NDA with Vajpayee. After 2001, she allied with Congress for meeting elections. In 2003, she again fell out with Congress and stated, in her own phrases, that BJP is her herbal best friend. In 2004, she fought with BJP again. And, once more, in 2009 she returned to UPA. Mamata give up UPA in 2012. Who is she to comment on UPA? Rahul Gandhi, then again, is fighting an ideological battle towards now not simply Modi, however BJP and RSS.”

The competitive riposte got here as Kishor said that after having misplaced ninety% of the elections within the last 10 years, Congress can't claim to have a divine right to say the leadership function of an anti-BJP alliance.
Trinamool Congress defended the celebration chief’s “there may be no UPA now” commentary ” by way of saying she turned into factually accurate as UPA became shaped below the management of Congress to shape government and lasted 10 years from 2004 to 2014, when the constituent events have been in workplace on the Centre.

TMC defends Mamata's 'UPA' commentary, says alliance become created for governance
“UPA become created in May 2004 with a clear purpose which become for governance, almost the identical set of parties got here back to workplace in 2009 and UPA persisted. But seeing that May 2014, some other alliance came to workplace for governance, so UPA does no longer exist. If you cross through numbers, lots of those parties have a faded strength in the House… however numbers do now not matter as they are now not in government," TMC’s Rajya Sabha chief Derek O’Brien said.

Surjewala changed into unsparing in his attack on Mamata. “BJP is destroying India’s democratic systems. And we should ask whether Mamata isn’t doing the equal element that Modi does. She is likewise buying MLAs and breaking events. Somehow, she has endorsed and followed the equal fascistic concept process she is pretending to fight.”

He brought, “In August, she said all people ought to come together to combat BJP. She needs to introspect as to whether she is preventing Congress or BJP with a consultant to guide her.”

The provocation regarded to be Kishor’s tweet who amplified Mamata by means of announcing “The IDEA and SPACE that Congress represents is important for a sturdy opposition. But Congress’ management is not the DIVINE RIGHT of an man or woman specially, whilst the birthday party has lost extra than ninety% elections in closing 10 years. Let competition management be decided Democratically.”
TMC additionally emphasized its credentials announcing it's far very an awful lot a part of the united competition in Parliament this consultation, with maximum parties supporting each different at the common issues that they have got determined to take in with the authorities. O’Brien said, “We are announcing 12 of our opposition members have been suspended from Rajya Sabha and they're sitting on a dharna to protest towards it. It isn't always a TMC dharna, all of the opposition party leaders are going there and displaying their solidarity with the suspended MPs from TMC, Congress, Shiv Sena, CPM and CPI.”

On repeated questions about why Mamata has been concentrated on Congress, O’Brien said, “Mamata didi is here for a reason, for the fight, she is here thru struggle and the conflict become not towards CPM, she had to warfare together with her very own party Congress to fight towards the Left Front government in Bengal… she had to form her very own celebration.”

Elaborating on TMC’s growth into states past Bengal wherein the party has been inducting individuals from Congress, he stated the birthday celebration become being “pragmatic” in its moves and “accepting the floor reality” in politics. “The attention for TMC is to defeat or throw out BJP. Hence the birthday party is going into states where BJP is robust and the opponent is looking susceptible,” he said.
The to and fro, triggered by means of Mamata’s comment on Congress after her meeting with NCP chief Sharad Pawar and Shiv Sena leaders, shows escalating war of words in the opposition camp over the leadership difficulty. Mamata’s aggression has followed her victory in the West Bengal elections, which made her trust that she will be able to use her overcome BJP for a country wide function. It is now to be visible how NCP, Shiv Sena, JMM and DMK react to Mamata’s efforts to marginalise Congress.

CPM said neither TMC nor Congress will achieve their efforts to lead a united competition against BJP. In the present day version of the celebration mouthpiece, People’s Democracy, it said the success of the farmers’ warfare indicates what a united and sustained fight can obtain. It stated team spirit will be difficulty-primarily based, like it's far in the case of MPs’ suspension, and that “no omnibus team spirit” at the all-India degree with a “chief” goes to work.
“The broadest team spirit can be cast through the united moves of different sections of the working humans. This should be followed by the projection of opportunity policies and politics to the Hindutva authoritarian regime, around which all democratic and secular forces can rally round,” it stated.
