Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Chief Minister today accepted RJD supremo Lalu Prasad's invitation to attend a rally of political parties opposed to the BJP-led central in August next.

"Lalu Ji, We accepted your invitation to be there on August 27. We will be there," Banerjee said in a tweet.

Banerjee's acceptance of the invitation came on a day when IT raids were carried out at various locations in and adjoining areas in search of the alleged benami properties linked to and others.

The former chief minister earlier this month had said he would convene in August in an all-rally of parties opposed to the BJP-led at the Centre.

According to the RJD, the meeting would be a precursor to a Bihar-like grand alliance at the national level to dethrone the from power in the 2019 general
