Mamata Banerjee didn't give a clear answer if she could lead a front of regional parties.

Interestingly, major opposition parties such as the BJP, the CPI (M) and the Congress have joined hands to defeat the ruling Trinamool Congress, she said in an interview to a Bengali news channel Zee 24Ghanta. "Ihave never spoken about this to anyone", the Hindustan Times quoted the Trinamool Congress chief as saying. According to him, Ms Banerjee had a meteoric rise with the support of the Congress, but she deserted it. Mr Roy was addressing a panchayat election campaign rally at Gopiballavpur in Jhargram. Federal Front of regional parties is the future.

"A particular party has given supari (contract) to kill me".

Ms Banerjee predicated the Rashtriya Janata Dal, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the Telangana Rashtriya Samiti and the Telugu Desam Party will perform well in the Lok Sabha polls. It has to work in a united way. In such a situation, she added, former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda's Janata Dal Secular would play the kingmaker's role. And sometimes even function as the king. Why did she desert the Congress?

However, all that changed Friday when Aishwarya started her Instagram account before she walks the Cannes red carpet again. The former beauty queen has reached the French land and will make an appearance at Cannes red carpet on Saturday night.

An eight-member committee, headed by chief secretary Malay De, will devise a mechanism to deal with the issue, the chief minister had said earlier in the week. "But considering the financial constraints of the state government, it will no more be possible to provide free treatment to these patients", said the chief minister while adressing a gathering at the West Bengal University of Health Sciences.

"Patients from around four to five states are getting treatment here and from two-three neighbouring countries also", she said.

Banerjee, then with Congress, suffered a skull fracture and stayed in hospital for a month. She, however, congratulated Hardik Patel and Jignesh Mevani for their poll success. "We'd like the Congress to triumph Karnataka as the Congress is powerful that there", she had subsequently stated.
