In the national capital ahead of the winter session of Parliament, Mamata created a buzz with her sudden meetings with former Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar, former Congress leader Kirti Azad and ex JDU MP Pavan Verma. All three joined the TMC moments after meeting Mamata, who is expected to meet prime minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday and raise the issue of extended BSF jurisdiction and Tripura violence.

After the inductions today, Mamata signalled her national ambitions hailing India and the states and UTs of India. “Jai Hind, Jai Bharat, Jai Bangla, Jai Haryana, Jai Goa. I say this because the Centre cannot go ahead without the states,” said Mamata who continues to poach leaders from the Congress.
