Mamata Banerjee to meet Sonia Gandhi Oppn leaders
According to news agency ANI, senior NCP leader Praful Patel confirmed that the party had boycotted the opposition meeting called by Congress.
After Lalu Yadav's anti-BJP rally planned for August 27 in Patna, opposition unity will face its big test in Gujarat where the Congress has chose to launch a satyagraha on September 1 along with other opposition parties, to protest what it calls are attacks on tribals in the state. The 16 parties, which attended the meeting, made a decision to form a sub-group to prepare a agenda ahead of the Winter Session of Parliament.
The meeting was held by Sonia Gandhi the Opposition party member. Mr. Shivakumar had recently been through gruelling Income Tax raids soon after he took on the onerous task of safeguarding 40-odd Gujarat Congress MLAs from being poached by the BJP before the Rajya Sabha poll.
Apart from the Congress, Left parties, TMC, RJD, JD (U), NCP, JMM, DMK, NC, SP, BSP, RLD, JD-S, Kerala Congress, AIUDF besides some others are slated to participate in the meeting. She has been the longest serving Congress president in the 125-year history of the party after being re-elected for the fourth time in September 2010.
Born Antonia Edvige Albina Maino on December 9, 1946, Sonia Gandhi is an Italy-born Indian politician. Today's agenda for the meeting was to thank presidential and vice presidential candidate of the joint opposition which is Meira Kumar and Gopalkrishna Gandhi. "We also thanked MPs and MLAs who voted for them", Azad told reporters. Suggesting that the opposition parties had to build an "alternative narrative" to counter PM Narendra Modi and BJP, Yechury said, "This could be done through effective strategy and by taking up pro-people issues such as agrarian crisis". A party MP who took part in the deliberations, against the party's decision, was penalised.
