The meeting was about to talk and discuss the strategy against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi the leading Central Government. Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav has been invited for the meeting.

Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee attended the meeting, as did CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah.

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.

".Congress party will win the election on the strength of its work, the work done towards farmers, youth in the state".

"We are not the B-team of the Congress".

Meanwhile, with Ahmed Patel emerging victorious in the Gujarat Rajya Sabha polls, the NCP on Wednesday reminded the Congress that this triumph happened due to their help, and the grand old party must remember this in the future.

The meeting thanked opposition presidential candidate Meira Kumar and vice-presidential candidate Gopalkrishna Gandhi for accepting their request to contest despite knowing that the result was likely to be unfavourable.

When asked about the absence of NCP at the meeting, senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad told reporters he had personally spoken to Pawar, who in turn informed him that he was unwell and was therefore skipping the meeting.

The 18 opposition parties had earlier made a decision to meet once a month to discuss various crucial issues and maintain better coordination among themselves to "unitedly" take on the government. Siddaramaiah had implemented a number of projects for Dalits, backward classes and the minorities, he said.

"A small coordination committee will be formed of opposition leaders to decide the future programmes", he said. "When I spoke personally to Sharadji, why should I believe in sources", he said referring to Patel's remarks.

After the repeated defeats at the hands of the BJP in a series of elections and the party's aggressive push to establish footprints in non-BJP ruled states through other means, the Opposition leaders are working around the "unite or perish" principle. "Now tell me how many jobs has Siddaramaiah given in Karnataka?-30,000".
