West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee arrived in New Delhi late on Tuesday to take part in a mega rally of non-BJP parties convened by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday.
AAP's 'Tanashahi Hatao, Desh Bachao' (Remove Dictatorship, Save Country) rally will be organised at Jantar Mantar and all parties which had attended the January 19 mega opposition rally called by Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata are likely to attend the gathering.

Congress is, however, unlikely to participate in the AAP rally that will be attended by Telugu Desam Party chief, Chandrababu Naidu.
Naidu also holded a day-long fast in Delhi on Monday demanding that the Centre fulfil all promises made during the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh in 2014.
Leaders of more than 23 political including Delhi CM and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal had attended the Kolkata rally held in Brigade Parade Grounds by Banerjee, who is a strident critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and one of the prime movers behind the efforts to cobble up an anti-BJP alliance ahead of the coming Lok Sabha polls.
Kejriwal had expressed his support to Banerjee again when she was on a "Save the Constitution" dharna from February 3 to 5 here after the CBI's failed bid to question Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in connection with chit fund cases."
The Opposition parties aim to firm up a 'mahagathbandhan' to challenge the BJP-led NDA ahead of Lok Sabha elections which are just months away.
