NEW DELHI: With West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Delhi to attend a mega opposition rally, posters have been put up in the national capital mocking the Trinamool Congress chief. Posters carrying captions which read 'Didi, smile please, you are in a democracy' and 'Welcome to Delhi, where democracy is alive and kicking' have been put up by an organisation known as Youth For Democracy.

However, the posters put up at several places across the city have caricatures of the West Bengal Chief Minister along with different captions aimed at taking a dig at her over various developments in her state recently. They have been installed at major areas of Jantar Mantar road, Bang Bhawan (Hally Road) and Windsor Palace Circle Area.

Mamata is in Delhi to join the Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party led 'Tanashahi Hatao, Desh Bachao' (Remove Dictatorship, Save Country) rally at Jantar Mantar. Along with Banerjee, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu are also expected to take part in the opposition protest.
