The prelude to a mouth-watering political drama has been written for 2019 with an appetiser in Kolkata. A range of opposition parties came together to address a mega rally in Kolkata wherein soaring speeches were delivered, gracious gestures exchanged, clever slogans worked the crowds with expectations running high.
