Jayalalithaa calls up Mamata: Reports
Tamil Nadu chief minister and All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) supremo J Jayalalithaa has reportedly called up West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee over the Lok Sabha elections, said reports on Friday.
"A day after AIADMK chief and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa snapped her pre-poll alliance with the Left Front, sources have told CNN-IBN that she called West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee and wished her for the coming Lok Sabha polls," said the news channel.
"Mamata had told CNN-IBN that she wanted Jaya to be a part of the Federal Front. Mamata had also said that Jayalalithaa could even be a Prime Ministerial candidate of the Federal Front," it said.
Banerjee on Thursday said she has no problem working with Jayalalithaa or Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati following the situation after the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
"I am very much open to working with all...I have no problem at all..We can work together," Banerjee told Times Now news channel.
When asked whether she is ready to support the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister if she wants to become the Prime Minister of the country, Banerjee said: "I have no problem. I don't bother the chair, I care for the people."
She said she will like to see good governance.
