Without Congress, UPA is body without soul: Kapil Sibal

New Delhi: Congress has appealed to the regional parties that it is time to show opposition unity.

On Tuesday, Mamata Banerjee said that there is no UPA, and said that she is forming an alliance with Congress. Reacting to her statement, Congress leader Kapil Sibal said that “without Congress, UPA will be a body without a soul. Time to show opposition unit”, he tweeted.

However, Trinamool Congress was once part of the UPA and enjoyed power at the Centre for ten years from 2004 to 2014.

"We've tried to include them (Trinamool) in various socio-political issues where Congress made its name. The opposition should not get divided and fight amongst themselves, we've to fight against BJP together," underscored Mallikarjun Kharge, Congress leader in the Rajya Sabha.

The Trinamool Congress is pulling its weight to project Mamata Banerjee as the big opposition leader ever since her landslide victory in the Bengal polls in April-May, NDTV reported.
