Presidential Polls: Mamata Banerjee to meet Sonia Gandhi

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Chief Minister will today meet president in

While the main purpose of the meeting is speculated to be the selection of a Presidential candidate, the two leaders are also likely to discuss the formation of an anti-(BJP) coalition to counter Prime Minister Modi-led in the 2019 elections.

With President Pranab Mukherjee's term set to end in July, Gandhi has already Janata Dal-United JD (U) leader and Nationalist Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar.

According to reports, Pradesh Committee president Adhir Chowdhury, has written a letter to the party high command, requesting her to deal with Banerjee carefully as most of the (TMC) leaders are under the scanner in Saradha and Narada scams.

Sources in the TMC said that Banerjee might place President Mukherjee's name as one of her choices. However looking at the present situation, where the party is on the radar due to the ongoing investigations involving several scams, the Chief Minister might settle for a common candidate selected by all major parties.

After meeting with the president, Banerjee may meet Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal next week.
