With the Lok Sabha polls scheduled this year, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is going to host a mega rally of non-Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) leaders in the national Capital on February 13 against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Government at the Centre.
The rally “Tanashahi Hatao-Desh Bhachao” (remove dictatorship, save democracy) will be organised at Jantar Mantar on February 13. All Opposition leaders will attend this rally against the Modi Government,” said a senior party leader.
It will be attended by all those who had attended Mamata Banerjee’s Kolkata rally last month, he said.
“The rally would be organised on February 13 at 10 am in the morning which will be attended by West Bengal Mamata Banerjee and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu,” Gopal Rai, Minister for Employment, Development and Labour said on Twitter.
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 just months away, the rally will help to bring the Opposition leaders together and firm up a ‘mahagathbandhan’ to challenge the BJP-led NDA,” he added.
Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal had also attended the Kolkata rally, where he gave a call to defeat the Modi Government.
