Raising the pitch for defeating the BJP, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said the mega opposition rally being hosted by her Trinamool Congress on January 19 would sound the “death knell” for the saffron party in the Lok Sabha polls and regional parties would be the deciding factor.

The firebrand CM also had a prediction for the BJP. She claimed that the BJP’s seat count in the general elections 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 added. 
“The federal parties, that is the regional parties, will be the deciding factor after the elections,” she said. “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.
Banerjee also visited the Brigade Parade grounds to check arrangements for the rally.
Ending days of suspense, BSP chief Mayawati on Thursday confirmed her participation in the mega opposition rally. Mayawati said she will be sending senior party leader Satish Chandra Mishra to join the anti-BJP chorus in Kolkata.
Biju Janata Dal (BJD), Telangana CM and Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) President K Chandrashekar Rao (who is calling for a non-BJP and non-Congress front) and CPI are non-committal about their participation.
With BJP’s recent electoral defeats in three states, Mamata is looking forward to playing an important role in fighting the saffron brigade in general elections.
At present, the TMC has 34 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats.
