"I thank him for agreeing to meet reps of political parties on 16 and 17 November where we will brief him in detail on the grim situation," she wrote in the microblogging site. Upping the ante against BJP, Banerjee had said on Saturday tha she is not averse to working with arch rival CPI(M) and other opposition parties like Congress, SP, BSP to fight against the "anti-people" Modi government which has imposed an "undeclared emergency".

Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of conducting a "surgical strike on the common people" in the name of unearthing black money, she had said the demonetisation move was taken without proper planning causing immense hardship.
