Opposition parties to meet Friday

The reason, sources said, might be the NCP being miffed with the Congress after it expressed doubt over its integrity.

There has been a news squandering around by the Congress party that the NCP MLAs instead of voting Congress candidate Ahmed Patel, they have voted for BJP in the Rajya Sabha elections, Gujarat.

Another UPA constituent, Kerala Congress (Mani), was also absent.

A Congress leader said that invitations were being sent to opposition leaders for the mega protest in Gujarat and the party expected a good show at the satyagraha protest.

Calling upon the party's state leaders and cadres to work together with unity, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said the party would win the assembly election in the state due in April-May 2018.

JD (U) MP Ali Anwar's presence gave a feeling that the Bihar ruling party is on the verge of a split. CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury proposed that the parties should align with the people's movements on the ground, for instance like the farmers' unrest over policies of the government.

The NCP decision to stay away from the meeting of opposition leaders, attended by Mamata Banerjee (Trinamool), Sitaram Yechury (CPI-M), Omar Abdullah (NC), Naresh Agarwal (SP), S C Mishra (BSP) among others, was Pawar's way of telling the Congress that smaller allies can not be taken for granted.

Today's meeting chose to form a small group to coordinate with all Opposition parties during the session-break. Parties that have a strong organisational strength in each of these states could take the lead in organising the programmes and other parties will join them, to make their presence felt on the ground. Azad said the parties were told to take independent decisions on joining the rally. Conduct any meeting; nothing can hamper us in any way, ? he said.
