West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee shall hold a meeting with senior BJP leaders Yashwant Sinha and Shatrughan Sinha, along with Arun Shourie, in New Delhi on Wednesday. 

The three senior BJP leaders, on more than one occasion, have expressed their displeasure with some of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government’s decisions.

This development comes a day after Banerjee met various opposition leaders, including National Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, to discuss prospects of forming a third front.

The Trinamool Congress Chief is looking to stitch an alliance with opposition parties with an aim to forge a 'Non-Congress Non-BJP' third front. 

The Trinamool Congress leader, who is on a four-day visit to Delhi, also expressed her willingness to meet BSP chief Mayawati and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav in Lucknow, should they invite her. "Will certainly go meet if they (Mayawati-Akhilesh Yadav) call us for a meeting to Lucknow," she told reporters.
