"Welcome to Delhi, where democracy is alive and kicking, Didi", reads one of the many posters that have popped up at several places in Delhi as West Bengal Cheif Minister Mamata Banerjee landed in the Capital on Tuesday to participate in an Opposition rally.

Banerjee arrived in Delhi on Tuesday night to take part in a mega opposition rally called by the AAP at Jantar Mantar on Wednesday.

Put up by an organisation known as Youth For Democracy, a number of posters have been installed at different corners of the city taking a jibe at Banerjee.

The posters have caricatures of West Bengal Chief Minister along with different captions aimed at taking a dig at Banerjee for different political developments in her state in the recent past.

Large numbers of such banners have been installed at major areas of Jantar Mantar road, Banga Bhawan (Halley Road) and Windsor Palace Circle Area.

"Didi, no one is going to prevent you from addressing people here", reads the caption of another poster.

Banerjee has emerged as one of the most formidable voices of the opposition and her visit to Delhi assumes significance after the protest she led in Kolkata over the CBI's attempt to interrogate the city police chief in chit fund scam cases created a political storm.

She has been at loggerheads with the ruling BJP, which is eyeing at least 22 of 42  seats in Bengal in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Last month, Banerjee organised a rally of opposition parties in Kolkata, where she called for ousting the Narendra Modi government at the Centre, claiming its "expiry date" has elapsed.

Along with Banerjee, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal are also expected to take part in the opposition protest.
