Lunch includes Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mewani, Sushil Modi, Sharad Pawar, Shatrughan Sinha, Stalin of DMK among others. The opposition rally that took place days ago saw leaders of all political parties descend to West Bengal in a demonstration of unity before the election of Lok Sabha. In the midst of the politically charged atmosphere, what evaded the public eye was the development of sympathy among once-rival leaders, with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as the perfect host.
A photo of Mamata Banerjee serving food to her fellow politicians and public leaders is now doing the rounds on social networks. The image was shared by social media strategist Ankit Lal of Aam Aadmi Party on Twitter and has gained wide appreciation for Mamata. The CM of West Bengal can be seen serving the former deputy of Bihar CM and Tejaswhi Yadav of RJD, followed by the leader of Patidar, Hardik Patel. Lunch includes Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mewani, Sushil Modi, Sharad Pawar, Shatrughan Sinha, Stalin of DMK among others. Former HD Prime Minister Deve Gowda, National Assembly Party President Sharad Pawar, Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav, National Conference President Farooq Abdullah are also present.
It should be noted that 25 political leaders from more than 20 political parties joined with a shared agenda to take on the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections. They also agreed to pursue this partnership with more meetings of this type in other states and a concrete action plan in the form of a joint policy document.
