"Tanashahi Hatao, Desh Bachao" (Remove Dictatorship, Save Country) rally will be organised at Jantar Mantar on 13 February. All Opposition leaders will attend this rally against the Modi government," senior AAP leader Gopal Rai told PTI on Sunday.

"It will be attended by all those who had attended Mamata Banerjee's Kolkata rally in January," 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 just months away, the rally will help to bring the Opposition leaders together and firm up a 'mahagathbandhan' to challenge the BJP-led NDA," they said.

Delhi chief minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal had also attended the Kolkata rally, where he gave a call to defeat the Modi government. Kejriwal has been a fierce critic of Modi and BJP president Amit Shah.
