Banerjee on Thursday met with her party’s MPs and discussed with them the current session of Parliament and the road to the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. “Our Chairperson @MamataOfficial held a meeting with all MPs in Delhi. The current Parliament session, the road to 2024 and various issues were discussed, with several activities and initiatives outlined for the coming days. We are always committed to serving the people,” tweeted the official handle of the All India Trinamool Congress.

Mamata Banerjee’s meeting holds importance ahead of the upcoming Vice-Presidential polls. Notably, the election for the Vice President’s post will be held on August 6. This comes just as the tenure of Vice President Venkaiah Naidu comes to an end on August 10, 2022. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) has announced Jagdeep Dhankhar as its vice-presidential candidate while opposition parties have announced Margaret Alva as their candidate.

The West Bengal CM is also likely to attend a Niti Aayog governing council meeting on August 7 that will be chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Last year, she had skipped the meeting.
