Kanimozhi to represent DMK at Sonia's dinner

Kanimozhi to represent DMK at Sonia's dinner”

With the parliamentary logjam unlikely to end, Prime Miniter Narendra Modi will today address the Parliamentary party meeting ahead of the session.

As per Congress' sources, the senior political leaders that are likely to be present at the dinner include Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Sudip Bandyopadhyay, DMK's Kanimozhi and Ram Gopal Yadav of the Samajwadi Party.

While Congress leader Sonia Gandhi will host a dinner today which is likely to be attended by leaders of 17 opposition parties, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar too plans for a separate meet of opposition leaders this month. Neither have Naveen Patnaik's Biju Janata Dal, Odisha's ruling party, or the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) which is in power in Telangana.

It is also said that Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati has also been invited to the dinner but is likely to escape the guest list.

It comes at a time when talk of a non-BJP, non-Congress front is doing the rounds following a proposal by TRS chief and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao for a national consultation process on the matter.

Notably, Sharad Pawar will attend the dinner hosted by Sonia Gandhi and the NCP will also invite the Congress to the discussion of opposition leaders.

They said former chief ministers of Jharkhand Babulal Marandi of Jharkhand Vikas Morcha and Hemant Soren (JMM) will attend the dinner, along with former Bihar chief minister and Hindustani Awam Morcha chief Jitan Ram Manjhi, who recently quit the NDA and joined forces with Lalu Prasad's RJD, which is an ally of the Congress. The Left parties will be there. Leaders of around 17 Opposition parties are expected to reach the former Congress President's house tonight. Sonia Gandhi stepped down as Congress president last year after an uninterrupted run of 19 years. However, with Banerjee announcing that TMC has backed Singhvi on the "request of Congress" she has also sent out a message that any future alliance will have to honour TMC's terms as an equal partner.
