Ahead of Opposition rally, posters slamming Mamata come up in Delhi
New Delhi, Feb 13: Posters caricaturing West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee have come up in Delhi ahead of opposition rally which is being organised by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday.
In a veiled attack, the posters take a dig at Mamata Banerjee, saying the Trinamool Congress chief can enjoy democracy in Delhi because it exists here unlike in Bengal.
Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will host "Save Democracy" rally at Jantar Mantar in the national capital on Wednesday.
The rally will be attended by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu, former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, National Conference (NC) leader Farooq Abdullah and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar.
Leaders from Samajwadi Party (SP), Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) and other parties will also be joining the rally.
The rally comes close on the heels of the opposition show of strength in Kolkata last month. All the opposition leaders had come together against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and vowed to fight unitedly to oust the Narendra Modi government which has "passed its expiry date".
Earlier on Monday, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu had held 12-hour long fast demanding special status category for his state.
