New Delhi: In the run up to the Lok Sabha polls, Delhi’s rul­ing AAP will host a mega rally of non- BJP lead­ers in the na­tional cap­i­tal on Fe­bru­ary 13 against the PM Naren­dra Modi- led govern­ment at the Cen­tre. It will be at­tended by all those who had at­tended CM Ma­mata Ban­er­jee’s Kolkata rally last month.

In the run up to the Lok Sabha polls, Delhi’s rul­ing Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP) will host a mega rally of non- BJP lead­ers in the na­tional cap­i­tal on Fe­bru­ary 13 against the Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi- led govern­ment at the Cen­tre.

“‘ Tanashahi Hatao, Desh Bachao’ ( Re­move Dic­ta­tor­ship, Save Coun­try) rally will be or­gan­ised at Jan­tar Man­tar on Fe­bru­ary 13. All Op­po­si­tion lead­ers will at­tend the rally against the Modi govern­ment,” said se­nior AAP leader Gopal Rai.

It will be at­tended by all those who had at­tended Ma­mata Ban­er­jee’s Kolkata rally last month, he said.

How­ever, sources said,

the Con­gress is un­likely to par­tic­i­pate in the rally that will be at­tended by Ma­mata Ban­er­jee and Chan­drababu Naidu among other Op­po­si­tion lead­ers. More­over, the AAP is not in favour of form­ing an al­liance with the Con­gress in Delhi for the up­com­ing polls.

With the Lok Sabha elec­tions months away, the rally will help to bring the Op­po­si­tion lead­ers to­gether and firm up a “mahagathbandhan” to chal­lenge the BJP- led NDA, said the AAP leader.

Delhi chief min­is­ter and AAP con­vener Arvind Ke­jri­wal had also at­tended the Kolkata rally, where he gave a call to de­feat the Modi govern­ment. Mr Ke­jri­wal has been a fierce critic of Mr Modi and BJP pres­i­dent Amit Shah.
