Mamata meets Sonia, Rahul on presidential polls

West Bengal chief minister and Trinamul Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee met Congress president Sonia Gandhi here Tuesday and discussed possible names for a consensus Opposition presidential candidate.

The association, which has been demanding some amendments in the act, had written to Banerjee seeking an appointment next week for discussion, he said. Taking a veiled dig at the government, she said: "If you do not like someone, then you send in the CBI, then put him in jail". In political matters there is some political vendetta going on.

The Trinamool chief also lashed out at the Centre for using CBI and other central agencies to get at rival political parties and leaders, saying, "confrontation can not be the way to function in a democracy".

Taking forward Opposition camaraderie, Ms Banerjee on Tuesday also supported RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, who has been at the receiving end of income-tax raids at his offices and residence since the morning. Political battles should be fought politically. "It does not behove anyone".

Banerjee said she would not disclose the discussions that took place but stressed that an ideological fight should be fought politically. "Soniaji and me discussed important political issues and also the presidential poll..." When two political leaders discuss, it is natural that they would talk politics. Mannan will be highlighting the plight of state Congress workers in the hands of TMC cadres and would urge that whatever transpires between the two parties in New Delhi over the upcoming Presidential election, should not have any impact in the politics of West Bengal.

Banerjee said no names were discussed at the 40-minute meeting, which was also attended by Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.
