Opposition parties are trying to make an anti-BJP front ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Banerjee is also expected to meet UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

A strident critic of the BJP-led central government and its policies, Banerjee had recently called for unity among all the anti-BJP forces to defeat the saffron party in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

Banerjee had earlier emphasised on forming a federal front to take on the BJP, which has also emerged as a strong force in West Bengal. A large section of the Trinamool Congress also wants to see her playing a key role in national politics if the non-NDA parties are able to form a majority in 2019.
