AAP to host mega Opposition rally in Delhi; Cong unlikely to attend
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.
The rally is against 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 Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal
leaders will attend it,” senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Gopal Rai told media. It will be attended by all those present at 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.
With the Lok Sabha elections a few months away, the rally will help to unite Opposition leaders and firm up a ‘mahagathbandhan’ to challenge the BJP-led NDA, they said.
