She added that when political people meet then, of course, they will discuss politics, there is nothing to hide in that.

NCP leader Sharad Pawar, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Dinesh Trivedil during a meeting at NCPoffice at Parliament in New Delhi on Tuesday.

Banerjee, who is also the Trinamool Congress chief, is also expected to meet UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

It is interesting to note that the Shiv Sena, which is now an ally of the BJP in the NDA government, had said in January this year that it would contest solo in 2019.

There also have been efforts to form a third front of parties that want to be equidistant from both BJP and Congress.

Addressing a press conference in the national capital, Mamata said, "Yes, Sonia Ji is unwell right now and recovering".

In her interaction with DMK MP Kanimozhi, Mamata Banerjee said that she is confident that the "DMK is coming to power" and the party has her support.

"Same opinion. Everyone is of the same opinion", she said. No one will be allowed to organise processions in the area of another community and murder a person, she said.

The chief minister also said "there's no party in the country that's more communal than the BJP", even as she took on saffron party for announcing the Karnataka poll dates before the Election Commission's official announcement. State BJP President Dilip Ghosh rallied with a sword in West Midnapore while party's state women wing president Locket Chatterjee was seen carrying a trident.

After a day of hectic parleys in Parliament where she spent about four hours on Tuesday, the TMC chief said, "All of us are of the view that we should work together". "In UP, if Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati stay together nothing can beat them. It is best to work along with everyone", Mamata had said after meeting Rao.

The West Bengal chief minister further said that she can meet Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati and Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav if they call her to Lucknow.

TMC sources told ThePrint that, after the meetings in Delhi, Mamata will try to reach out to regional parties such as the TDP, a former BJP ally, and the BJD in order to explore the possibility of getting them on board the idea.

Following her meeting with NCP and RJD leaders, Mamata said the "Lok Sabha elections of 2019 will certainly be interesting".
