This story from Mumbai where the month of energy is meeting Sharad Pawar and NCP Sharad Pawar in Mumbai city and in a bit to talk about the possible new alliance will there be a new alternate force that Mamata Banerjee is talking about she says there’s a need to counter our fastest regime the upa does not exist the United progressive alliance does not exists it’s a big statement coming in from energy remember the chairperson of upa was sonia gandhi the Congress was leading the alliance in the year 2004 2009 when there was a coalition government not once but twice with Sonia Gandhi as the chairperson of up dr Mohan Singh was prime minister and the other opposition parties were in fact rallying around the Congress party, the Congress was leading the UPA that is no more is what mamta banerjee has said it’s a clear attempt to project herself then as a face of a United opposition just before lok sabha elections and it’s with this reason that she has met sharad Pawar . She’s meeting Sharad Pawar today she was also supposed to meet with devtakri it’s evident that the opposition front is now not month of energy in fact doesn’t want the opposition to be led by the Congress he says upa is history it’s obviously an all-out attack on the Congress party also when she says that to fight the bjp you have to be on the ground and not be taking foreign trips.
Mamata Banerjee for the moment seems to be mocking the Congress party where she says upa is history now up remember was the alliance that was led by sonia gandhi she was chairperson in the year 2004 and 2009 when twice the Congress said coalition was in power at the center with other parties being a part of it ncp and tmc two were a part of it during this time with month of energy also holding important portfolios in the upa government including that of the railway minister after which she later on went to become the chief minister of being gone but is this essentially a signal to the Congress party that mamata is not willing to do business with them and if at all there is an opposition front that is United then she would rather have the Congress out of it that’s the question that at best tmc chief supremo Mamata Banerjee can answer but she says that upa is history which means that she doesn’t that she doesn’t want congress to be leading this alliance that’s the message from mamata banerjee today as she meets ncp chief shark pavar in mumbai listening to one month of energy.We had positive discussions is what ncp chief Sharad Pawar has said but month of energy has gone and said what up there is no upa now when a reporter was trying to ask a question about who is going to be leading the United progressive alliance at upa remember the coalition that brought together the Congress along with other parties and which was of course in government since the year 2004. It was elected the second time in the year 2009 as well Sonia Gandhi was the chair person and other parties along with the Congress had joined hands to form the government mamata banerjee remember was a part of upa now she Seems to be suggesting that she is not interested in doing business with the Congress anymore or at least doesn’t want congress to be leading an alliance if at all there is alliance in the near future and an attempt clearly is being made to unite the opposition parties because she’s not meeting Sharad Pawar She’s also meeting other leader of a regional party she’s been doing that for a while, the tmc of course is keen to project Mamata Banerjee as a phase of the opposition in the lok sabha elections that’s due in 2004 . It’s a big political development today where ups history is what mamata banerjee has said upa remember was in government in the year 2004 and 2009 it was a coalition government that was led by the Congress Sonia Gandhi was the chairperson of the upa Mamata Banerjee today says ups history she’s also mocking the Congress when she says to fight the bjp you have to be a part of , in fact you have to be on the ground and you can’t be taking flights outside India you can’t be on foreign soil all the time .
