There is no other leader like Mamata Banerjee, she should be PM: Anna Hazare
New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare’s endorsement to be the next Prime Minister. Anna has said that there is no other leader like Mamata Banerjee.
“Mamata Banerjee is a grassroot leader. She leads a simple life and does not accept any benefits. There is no other leader like her. Leaders like her are essential for the country. She gives me hope that the problems in India can be effectively tackled. We have agreed on 17 poll promises. We will work hard to deliver them when we come to power,” Anna said on Tuesday.
This came after the two leaders met on Tuesday and planned to launch a ‘Fight for India’ campaign before the Lok Sabha elections.
Mamata hosted a dinner in his honour in Delhi. Anna said that she has promised that the Trinamool Congress will fulfil his 17 demands, if it comes to power. “I sent 17 points to every political party. The points if implemented will change the nation for good. Nobody responded. Only West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sent a reply. We need such people,” he reportedly said.
This is quite a U-turn from Mamata’s stand two years ago when at a CNN-IBN award function, she had refused to share the stage with Anna.
