Mamata Banerjee accepts Lalu Prasad Yadav's invite to attend Opposition meet

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee accepted RJD supremo Lalu Prasad's invitation to attend a rally of political parties opposed to the BJP-led central government in August.

"Lalu Ji, We accepted your invitation to be there on 27 August. We will be there," Banerjee said in a tweet.

Banerjee's acceptance of the invitation came on a day when IT raids were carried out at various locations in Delhi and adjoining areas in search of the alleged benami properties linked to Lalu Prasad and others.

The former Bihar chief minister earlier said he would convene in August in Patna an all-India rally of parties opposed to the BJP-led government at the Centre.

According to the RJD, the meeting would be a precursor to a Bihar-like grand alliance at the national level to dethrone the Narendra Modi government from power in the 2019 general
