Opposition leaders set to meet on February 26

The current political situation and strategy for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls are some of the topics that might be discussed

Opposition leaders are set to meet in New Delhi on February 26 to discuss the political situation and strategy for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

During the meeting, the leaders will also reportedly discuss the formation of a sub-comittee for exploring the Common Minimum Programme.

The meeting, originally meant to be held in Mohali along with a public rally, was supposed to be a show of unity among Opposition leaders, according to sources.

The meeting is now scheduled to be held in the Parliament Annexe building.

The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), which did not show up at the all-party meeting on December 10, attended the Opposition rally organised by Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee in January. Sources say that it is hoped that the BSP will send a representative to the meeting this time.

This meeting also assumes significance as it is scheduled just a couple of days before the Congress Working Committee is set to meet in Gujarat on February 28.
