Bhubaneswar: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today requested all the regional parties to come together with greater strength and form a great alliance in order to defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party.

While talking to the media, Banerjee went on to say: “All regional parties should come together and move ahead with greater strength maintaining good relations with each other. Our effort will be to unite them.”

The Chief Minister is on a three-day visit to Odisha. She is likely to discuss the matter with her Odisha counterpart Naveen Patnaik on Thursday.

“I have sought time for meeting with Naveen Patnaik. If permitted, I will meet him before leaving Odisha,” she said.

Janata Dal-United leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his colleague Sharad Yadav, who attended the funeral of former Lok Sabha Speaker Rabi Ray, had met Patnaik.
