Conceding defeat? Mamata Banerjee writes to the opposition leaders to ‘unite against BJP’

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday wrote letters to top Opposition leaders, giving a call to unite against BJP. "I am writing this letter...to convey my serious concerns over a series of assaults by the BJP and its government at the Centre on democracy and constitutional federalism in India," Mamata Banerjee wrote in the three-page letter. Mamata Banerjee sent the appeal to 15 non-BJP leaders including Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, , Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik, DMK chief MK Stalin, Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren, Andhra CM Jagan Mohan Reddy, NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal RJD chief Tejashwi Yadav, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav as well as NC chief Farooq Abdullah and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti. Claiming that the BJP wants to establish a one-party 'authoritarian rule, Mamata Banerjee said, "Overall, the Centre-State relations, and also relations between the ruling party at the Centre and Opposition parties, have never been as bad in the history of independent India as they are now, and the blame for this rests squarely with the Prime Minister's authoritarian conduct." While giving a call on the Opposition to unite against the BJP, Mamata Banerjee said "I strongly believe that the time has come for a united and effective struggle against the BJP's attacks on democracy and the Constitution...We can win this battle only with the unity of hearts and minds, and by presenting a credible alternative to the people of India." Mamata’s letter is seen as a last-minute attempt to gain the support of the opposition parties since she is sensing her party’s defeat in West Bengal in the ongoing assembly election.
