Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-01-13

The opposition parties will meet today (Monday) afternoon to discuss the current political situation and chart out their strategy in the backdrop of the student protests and the contentious citizenship law and the citizenship list NRC. The meeting, expected to signal opposition unity.



 

Nevertheless, Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Bahujan Samajwadi Party chief Mayawati will skip the meeting, according to sources.



 

Moreover, Banerjee had decided to skip the meeting called by the president of the grand old party, Sonia Gandhi following her resentment with the Congress and the Left over violence allegedly perpetrated by them in the state during the January 8 Bharat Bandh. The Congress Working Committee has already passed a resolution asking the government to withdraw the CAA and stop work on the National Population Register (NPR).


 

Assemblies in Congress-ruled States are also likely to follow the Kerala Assembly in bringing resolutions to not implement the CAA.
