Although Mamta Banerjee has strengthened her position in Bengal politics. In the elections held in Bengal, other opposition parties including BJP, Congress and CPI-M are marginalized.

Mamta Banerjee held a United India rally with 22 parties at Brigade Maidan
However, TMC leader and Trinamool Congress has been pitting Mamata Banerjee against Prime Minister Narendra Modi since the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Mamta Banerjee also held a rally to anti-BJP leaders at Brigade Maidan in Kolkata. On January 19, 2019, there was a United India rally in Kolkata. In this meeting organized by West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, veteran leaders of about 22 parties from the opposition had arrived. In this rally, from former Union Ministers like former Prime Minister Deve Gowda, SP leaders Akhilesh Yadav, Farooq Abdullah, Chandrababu Naidu to Chief Ministers of some states also participated in this rally of opposition solidarity. But after the election results of the year 2019, the opposing camp was completely shattered and PM Narendra Modi again became the Prime Minister of the country. In this election, Mamata Banerjee’s support base in Bengal slipped. By capturing 18 out of the total 42 seats in the Lok Sabha, the BJP gave a tremendous challenge to Mamta Banerjee.
After the assembly elections, Mamata Banerjee was projected as the opposition face.
Lok Sabha Elections 2019 had an impact on the 2021 assembly elections. BJP staked claim to gain power in Bengal and presented a tough challenge to Mamta Banerjee, but unlike the Lok Sabha elections, Mamta Banerjee’s magic worked in the assembly elections and Mamta Banerjee’s party won a bumper victory and although Mamta Banerjee herself was elected from Nandigram. Was defeated in the assembly elections, but again took oath as the Chief Minister of the state for the third time on May 5 last year. After that Mamta Banerjee was again presented as the face of the opposition in the country, but even after a year, Mamta Banerjee has not entered national politics.
After the elections, Mamta Banerjee started uniting the opposition parties.
After the assembly elections, Mamta Banerjee had visited Delhi and met Congress President Sonia Gandhi. He had met top Congress leaders including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. After that Mamta Banerjee went to Mumbai and there she met NCP chief Sharad Pawar, although she could not meet Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, but she did meet his son. Mamta Banerjee wanted to unite the opposition parties against the BJP, but even after a year she could not unite the opposition parties. Meanwhile, the victory of BJP in the assembly elections of five states, including UP, defeated Mamta Banerjee’s spirits and after the victory in Punjab, Arvind Kejriwal was seen ahead of Mamta Banerjee.

Mamta Banerjee on the margins of national politics even after a year of bumper victory
Although after the election, Mamta Banerjee is constantly trying to unite the opposition parties, but in national politics, Mamata Banerjee does meet the anti-BJP party leaders of other states, but someone seems to be cutting her head in some way. Mamta Banerjee had earlier tried to unite the opposition parties by isolating the Congress, but this led to further disintegration of the opposition party and in national politics, Mamata Banerjee was projected as an opponent of the Congress more than the opponent of the BJP. This also dented Mamata Banerjee’s anti-image and her attempt to unite the opponents was eclipsed.
