Banerjee has given a call for formation of a federal front of regional parties as an alternative to the Congress and the BJP.

Banerjee, also the Trinamool Congress supremo, avoided a direct reply to a query on whether social activist Anna Hazare would campaign for her party in the coming Lok Sabha polls.

"Let me meet him first. Then I will let you know the details," she said.

Banerjee said Hazare was a "respected" person, and she was happy to meet him.

"He wanted to meet me when our all India general secretary Mukul Roy called on him recently. I have never met him. This is the first time I am meeting him. I will be happy to meet him," she said.
