Insiders say they are in motion on these issues.
The meeting was convened by opposition leader in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, attended by Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Anand Sharma, Kodiknnil Suresh, Jairam Ramesh (Parliament), Sharad Pawar (NCP), Tiruchi Shiva (DMK), Sanjay Raut (Shiv Sena), Derek O’Brien (Trinamool), Elamaram Kareem (CPM), Binoy Vishwam (CPI), Mohammad Basheer (IUML), NK Premachandran (RSP) Bhagwant Mann (AAP), Thomas Chazhikadan (KCM). While SP and BSP declined Kharge’s invitation, representatives of JMM, NC and AIUDF were unable to attend the meeting as their MPs have yet to reach Delhi. These parties will coordinate regularly during the meeting.
While Pawar showed up at the opposition meeting on his own, instead of sending a junior NCP candidate, sparking his Saturday meeting with the triggering Prime Minister, Trinamool parliamentary leader Sudhip Bandhopadhyaya did elected O’Brien, in line with the plans of Trinamool Lok Sabha members not to share meetings with Adhir Ranjan Chodhury, a political enemy of party leader Mamata Banerjee.
