Mamata to speak in Delhi Assembly


West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said she accepted an invitation from the Aam Aadmi Party to deliver an address at a workshop in Delhi Assembly.

"They invited me for a workshop in Delhi Assembly. I will go there," Banerjee told reporters after a meeting with a delegation of AAP leaders led by Somnath Bharti at her office.

AAP legislators were in the city to see the functioning of the state Assembly.

"We stand by ‘Didi’. We are with her in the federal structure. AAP is against the Centre’s attempt to interfere in the states’ own matters," Bharti said while criticising the newly-formed Niti Aayog. 

He accused the NDA government led by Narendra Modi of hurting India’s parliamentary structure as well as creating harm to cooperative federalism.
