'Sometimes govts last only a day': Mamata Banerjee hints at INDIA bloc's future govt formation ambitions

PTC Web Desk: Following a meeting of senior TMC leaders and recently elected MPs to discuss the party's strategy in the Lok Sabha, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee stated on Saturday that although the opposition INDIA bloc may not have claimed to form the government, that doesn't mean it won't tomorrow.

The TMC leader expressed scepticism about how long the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will hold power and declared that her party would "wait and watch."


"The nation is in need of change and wants it. This mandate called for change. We are waiting and monitoring the current situation. Narendra Modi shouldn't be prime minister this time around because this mandate was against him. Someone else should have been allowed to take over,” she said.

The president of the Trinamool Congress declared that the party would not be present at the new government's swearing-in ceremony, calling it "illegal" and "unconstitutional".

"The BJP is forming the government in an undemocratic and illegal manner. Although the INDIA bloc has not yet staked a claim to form the government, that does not mean it will not do so tomorrow. Let us wait for a while," she said.

"I would be happy to see that this unstable and weak government at the centre is out of power," Banerjee stated.
