Top leaders of the country’s opposition parties are going to have a two-day unity meeting in Bengaluru from today. This will be the second meeting of these leaders. Earlier on June 23, 17 parties united in Patna. Political plans to be explored here could include joint programs at the national level, but the decision on possible seat-sharing between the opposition parties would be left to the respective state units, people familiar with the issue said on Sunday.
A total of 26 parties are expected to participate in Bengaluru, showing the growing strength of opposition unity. This number is nine more than the meeting held in Patna. It is being told that in the meantime, the opposition leaders will attend an informal meeting. This will be followed by a dinner by Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday and a marathon meeting from 11 am on Tuesday.
Besides, sources say, Krishna Patel’s Apna Dal (Kamerwadi) and Tamil Nadu’s Manithaneya Makkal Katchi (MMK) led by MH Jawahirullah are also likely to join the morcha after invitations are sent.

These matters will also be discussed
he/she said that we will also discuss and develop a strategy for the monsoon session of Parliament. Issues like violence in Manipur, train accident in Balasore, attack on federal structure and role of governors are important issues for all.
There will be no discussion on seat-sharing
If media reports are to be believed, several opposition leaders who have gathered in Bengaluru are clear that this meeting is not an ideal forum to discuss the seat-sharing deal. Another Congress leader said that seat-sharing would be done closer to the elections. It would be unfair to decide on any seat-sharing agreement at the national level as most parties are not really eyeing an all-India alliance. Leaders say seat-sharing agreement should be done at the state level.
Congress set the framework
Like the previous meeting, there will be no fixed agenda for the Bengaluru discussion. However, it is being said that after the political aspects of the Patna meeting, more issues can be taken up in Bengaluru. Congress has prepared the outline of the meeting. Its General Secretary KC Venugopal has clearly stated that the main opposition party will not support the Delhi Ordinance.
he/she said I think you will attend the meeting tomorrow. As far as the Delhi Ordinance is concerned, our stand is very clear. We are not going to support it. At the same time, the Congress on Sunday declared that it has always fought against the attack of the Modi government on the constitutional rights and responsibilities of the democratically elected state governments and local bodies. This attack is done directly or on behalf of appointed persons like governors. The Congress party has opposed it before and will continue to oppose it.
