Mamata architect of federal front, main pillar of Opposition: Chandrababu Naidu


Kolkata, Feb 05: Describing West Bengal Cheif Minister Mamata Banerjee as the "architect" of the federal front, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday said that in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, her ruling Trinamool Congress will win all 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state.

Naidu, who joined Banerjee's "Save India" sit-in Kolkata to protest CBI's attempt to question Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar, said her ruling Trinamool Congress will win all 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal in the upcoming general elections.

"She (Mamata Banerjee) is the architect of the federal front. She is the main pillar of the opposition," Naidu told reporters.

"She will win all the 42 seats in West Bengal and will be in a decision making position at the national level," he said.

The Andhra Pradesh chief minister said he had come on behalf of the 23 political parties who had participated in the January 19 opposition rally in the city.

Naidu also welcomed the Supreme Court order which stated that the CBI would not be able to arrest Kumar, and supported Banerjee's move to stage a sit-in demonstration in protest.

Banerjee began the sit-in in front of Metro Cinema in the heart of the city on Sunday night after a CBI team attempted to enter Kumar's residence to question him in connection with chit fund scams.

She alleged that the CBI action was tantamount to stifling the spirit of "Constitution and federalism" in the country.
