Kolkata to host most leaders of grand alliance, only Sonia & Rahul to skip

<p><br />Ahead of the national election, there will be glimpse of what the grand alliance could look like.</p>

<p>It is so because the former Prime Minister HD Devegowda, Delhi chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Karnataka counterpart HD Kumaraswamy apart from political heavyweights</p>

<p>like Sharad Pawar and Akhilesh Yadav would address the January 19 opposition rally in West Bengal capital Kolkata.</p>

<p>This was confirmed by none less than Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee.</p>

<p>It is not a secret that Mamata is one of the contenders to be the face of the opposition to take on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in
the 2019
election.</p>

<p>But what is also important is that Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and her mother Sonia Gandhi are deciding to skip the rally even as party will be represented by leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge.</p>
