Congress President Rahul Gandhi and several other opposition leaders on Sunday extended their full support to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in her sit-in against the Centre over CBI move in the state, saying the happenings in Bengal were part of the unrelenting attack on India's institutions by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav and DMK leader M. K. Stalin were among leaders who expressed their solidarity with Banerjee in tweets.

However, CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury attacked both Banerjee and the BJP accusing both of "drama"

Gandhi, who spoke to Banerjee, said in a tweet that the "entire opposition will stand together and defeat these fascist forces."

"I spoke with Mamata Di tonight and told her we stand shoulder to shoulder with her. The happenings in Bengal are a part of the unrelenting attack on India's institutions by Modi and the BJP. The entire opposition will stand together and defeat these fascist forces,"

Events occurring in Bengal are a part of the continuous attack on Shri Modi and the BJP on democratic institutions of India. The entire opposition will stand together and defeat these fascist forces.

Nationalist Congress Party President Sharad Pawar tweeted that the central government has used tremendous use of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in West Bengal to scare the Opposition. Mehbooba Mufti, chief of the People's Democratic Party, wrote on Twitter: "History is witness to how Jammu and Kashmir have faced the harassment of central agencies. It is disappointing how democratic institutions are being used to humiliate political opponents? It is not good for the center and state relations. "
