Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee has claimed that the next government at the center will be that of Federal Front. The mercurial chief minister, who has distanced herself from the Congress Party led UPA and the BJP led NDA has said that neither the Congress nor the BJP led alliance would be able to get majority and thus will not be able to form the government in Delhi.
While talking to a leading news agency, the chief minister of the state who has decimated almost all the opposition parties in Bengal including the Left Parties who were the ruling parties before her rise, besides the Congress party, said that her Federal Front will be able to form the government at the center. While it is still not clear as to which parties are the part of her Federal Front, the claim simply seems preposterous.
The only known face who has openly said that he is part of the said front is Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao who also happens to be the Telangana Rashtriya Samiti (TRS). His party, having won the assembly elections held in November last year, is poised to do well and win the majority of the seats. The Congress party is the main opposition party in the state and is expected to win the second largest chunk of seats.
When asked about the claim of the BJP president, Amit Shah, that his party will win as many as 23 seats in the state, the chief minister said that Amit Shah doesn’t really know as to what he is speaking. She further said that Amit Shah’s party, the BJP, will not be able to win a single seat in the state.
On the issue of Muslim appeasement, the chief minister said that she doesn’t believe in dividing the people in the name of religion. Muslims make around 35 percent of the total population of the state and the chief minister has been able to attract the majority of the Muslim, as well as Hindu electorate towards her.
