Days after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee stated that she will be boycotting the January 13 Opposition meeting in New Delhi, Congress has stepped into an attack mode and has alleged Mamata Banerjee of taking a U-turn.

While interacting with the media on Saturday, Leader of Opposition in the parliament Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury slammed Mamata Banerjee of taking a U-turn and stated that it is 'easy to not trust her.

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said, " What she has done is political somersault and with such U-turn it's difficult to trust her and easy to not trust her."

Adding further the Congress leader also responded to CM Mamata's claim about Congress playing dirty politics.

"In Jharkhand, she met the opposition but that time she did not say that Congress is doing dirty politics. But now, she is saying so. She has received orders from the top to stop, and we all know who gives orders. The government is functioning centrally and we also need to come together to fight against them. If she wants to fight alone let her."
