NCP skips opposition meet chaired by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi

The reason behind NCP not being a part of the Opposition meeting is reportedly the recent Gujarat Rajya Sabha polls.

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. Also NCP skipping the meeting shows that Congress has no power and has lost it long back.

Today's meeting chose to form a small group to coordinate with all Opposition parties during the session-break. "That is why we chose to boycott this meeting", Praful Patel said. State Congress leaders believe that the NCP is moving away from opposition's fold.

The group also reported vandalism to "Hate Has No Home Here" signs that were put up in yards throughout the neighborhood. One of the rioters was former KKK leader David Duke . "We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump ".


Congress high command Sonia Gandhi had invited nearly all the opposition parties to unite as one entity against the BJP-led government on Friday, ahead of the last day of the monsoon session.

Gandhi said when the Congress-led government was at the Centre, every year minimum support price (MSP) on crops used to increase by about 15 per cent, but after BJP came to power it has been increasing only by two to three per cent. Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav has been invited for the meeting.

After initially raising the bogey of Opposition unity, the Bihar chief minister has since switched sides to the NDA, however, Mr Yadav has refused to accept his decision. The farmer-related issue, increasing communal tension, misuse of investigating agencies, subversion of democratic institutions, attack on opposition leaders, etc were to be discussed.

He is also organising a conclave in New Delhi on August 17, which will be attended by opposition leaders.

CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said his party is of the view that the Narendra Modi regime can be opposed by creating an alternative narrative through the struggles of people. Yechury said the Left parties in Bihar will take a decision soon on whether to participate or not in the rally.

Justifying the no-show, NCP MP Praful Patel said his party was angry at being accused of not voting for Ahmed Patel despite having issued a whip in his favour.

Accusing the Modi government of indulging in false and hollow promises, the congress leader said people know that Congress will do, what it says. He also recounted how some parties had chickened out of the plan to collectively protest against demonetisations past year.
