West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called her Delhi counterpart, Arvind Kejriwal, to congratulate him.
She told reporters that the Modi government's citizenship policies would be rejected. Only development will work, she said. Sher tweeted, 'I have congratulated Arvind Kejriwal. People have rejected BJP. Only development will work, CAA, NRC and NPR will be rejected'. A fierce critic of the Modi government, Mamata Banerjee took the extraordinary step of asking Delhi voters to pick the AAP over the BJP, a common rival.
Last year, Arvind Kejriwal was one of several Opposition leaders who spoke out against the Centre at a massive Kolkata rally organised by Mamata Banerjee's All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) party.
