Banerjee on Thursday said the rally, scheduled for Friday, would sound the "death knell" for the BJP in the Lok Sabha polls and regional parties would be the deciding factor.
She also claimed that the BJP's seat count in the general election will not cross more than 125. The number of seats that the state parties will win will be much more than the BJP's, she further claimed.
"The federal parties, that is the regional parties, will be the deciding factor after the elections," she told newsmen.
"The rally will sound the death knell for BJP ... Obviously, they (BJP) will not cross more than 125 seats," she said in reply to a question.
"Every political party has a vision ... This will be a grand alliance of people," Banerjee said about the rally.
She visited the Brigade Parade grounds in Kolkata, the venue of the rally, to check the arrangements.
The rally would start from 12 noon.
