Mamata and Sonia

Mamata Banerjee will meet UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi later this month to thrash out what might turn out to be an alliance in her favour with the state Congress. Mamata, in keeping with her stand, has refused to meet any state level leader regarding any alliance for the coming Lok Sabha elections.

IMO: We do not want a split vote. The land acquisition matter should not sidetrack this issue, and can probably be resolved ultimately in a constructive way. The Serious Fraud Office investigation into Satyam, for example, makes it clear that such matters must not be rushed through in two days. Mamata is to meet Sonia, apparently through the mediation of Union Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee.
