With an eye on the Lok Sabha polls, the Bengal Chief Minister is expected to unveil her plan what is being called as her ‘national agenda’ at the historic ground in Old Delhi.
Today rally is also likely to feature Hazare's 17-point agenda for clean governance.

In the process, Hazare will be indirectly taking on his estranged prodigy Arvind Kejriwal, whose Aam Aadmi Party bagged 27 out of 70 seats in the Assembly polls held in
December last.

The candidates will be selected together by Banerjee and Hazare from around 300 aspirants, Trinamool's Rajya Sabha member Shukhendu Sekhar Roy said.

"The party has adopted the policy of total transparency in terms of candidates' selection with affirmation on an affidavit which seeks approval of 17-point agenda of Anna Hazare's model of responsive governance from the deserving candidates," he said.

"If the candidates fail to abide by this agenda, they will automatically get disqualified," Roy added.

Sources said Trinamool Congress would field only the "sons of the soil", implying those who are originally from Delhi. They are likely to be from varied professions like doctor and lawyer.
The support of Hazare, who has mass appeal, would provide Banerjee a platform to try her luck in the national capital amidst her ambition of becoming the Prime Minister.
