In Parliament last week, Rahul Gandhi met leaders of the opposition parties in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. After that, he demanded accountability and investigation of the Narendra Modi government in the Pegasus case. This time, he invited the Leader of the Opposition and MPs to Parliament to unite the opposition parties.
The Trinamool Congress is also scheduled to attend Rahul Gandhi’s breakfast meeting at the Constitution Club in Delhi on Tuesday morning. Before Mamata Banerjee’s meeting with Sonia Gandhi during her visit to Delhi last week, the Trinamool was absent from a meeting of opposition parties initiated by Rahul Gandhi. But sources said Rajya Sabha leader Derek O’Brien has already received a green signal from top grassroots leaders to join Rahul’s breakfast.According to sources, the top leadership of the Trinamool Congress has asked everyone to attend the meeting.
Why did you decide to go this time after not going to the previous discussion? Trinamool sources said, “Mamata and Sonia did not meet during the last meeting. But after that, the direction is clear now. In anti-BJP politics, we will be on the side of the Congress. The Congress will be with us. ”
Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge of the Congress, said, “All the leaders of the opposition in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha and other MPs will attend the meeting.” Even on the first day of the third week, it remained virtually obsolete. The center is reluctant to discuss Pegasus.For so long, ministers like Piyush Gayal and Prahlad Joshi have been working with the opposition. Veteran Rajnath Singh has been given that responsibility after a meeting of Union Ministers with the Prime Minister this morning. Rajnath today spoke to Sudip Bandyopadhyay of the Trinamool Congress. But they said the opposition would not shy away from demanding an accountability and impartial investigation into the Pegasus.As a result, there was no direction to cut the stalemate in the parliament. Opposition groups called for a mock parliament to be set up. This will be discussed in Rahul’s meeting.
As for the Congress, at least 14 to 15 opposition parties will attend Rahul’s meeting. But the question has arisen in the political camp, why did Rahul Gandhi suddenly become active? For so many days he was reluctant to return to the post of Congress President! Is he trying to take the reins of the opposition this time? Or the anti-Mamata Seeing this activism in the face of alliance? Many people think that this is the first time that Sonia has invited political leaders to tea parties at different times.
Although the Leader of the Opposition, MPs agreed to attend the meeting called by Rahul, they are not willing to accept that they are accepting Rahul Gandhi’s leadership. Rahul and the They also do not accept that the leadership of the opposition alliance is leaving the hands of the Congress. SP Rajya Sabha leader Ram Gopal Yadav said, “Opposition parties meet every morning at Kharga’s house. And this is the invitation to breakfast. “CPM MP Elamram Karim said they were also attending the breakfast meeting. However, as almost all the DMK MPs are now in Chennai, there may be no one on their side. Meanwhile, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut had a meeting with Rahul today. “Rahul is happy with the work of the Maharashtra government,” Raut said. He is also interested in knowing the growth and work of Shiv Sena.
According to Congress sources, in the last one or two months, everyone in the discussion on the opposition alliance has said that it will not be without the Congress. But no one has said that the leadership will be in the hands of the Congress. NCP leader Sharad Pawar has said that “united leadership” is needed to build opposition unity. As a result, if the Congress is to hold the reins of the opposition alliance, Rahul Gandhi must be active. The party leaders, however, agree,While Sonia is acceptable as the leader of the anti-BJP alliance, Rahul does not. So, if only a political meeting is called on Tuesday, many will have objections, so Rahul has been invited to breakfast.
According to Trinamool sources, the top leadership has asked everyone to join the discussion but Mausam Noor, who recently came to the Trinamool from the Congress due to natural discomfort, may not go. Lok Sabha leader Sudip Banerjee may be absent due to physical illness. Rajya Sabha chief whip Sukhendu Shekhar Roy may not go because he avoids outside food.
