Opposition Meeting: After the congress extended its unequivocal support to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over the Delhi ordinance issue, AAP leader Raghav Chadha on Sunday announced that the party will take part in the next giant opposition meeting in Bengaluru.

Addressing the media, AAP MLA said that Aam Aadmi Party AAP under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal will take part in the meeting of like-minded parties in Bengaluru on July 17-18.

Congress on Sunday extended its unequivocal support to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over the Delhi ordinance issue.

Taking the matter to Twitter, Chadha wrote, “Congress announces its unequivocal opposition to the Delhi Ordinance. This is a positive development.”

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convened a PAC (Political Affairs Committee) meeting on Sunday to discuss important matters within the party.

In a parallel development, a significant opposition meeting is set to take place in Bengaluru, aiming to unite various political parties against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the forthcoming 2024 general assembly elections.

The meeting, organized by the Congress party, is expected to witness the presence of leaders from approximately 24 political parties, furthering the cause of opposition unity.

Congress leader Pawan Khera said, “Congress party will oppose the Centre’s ordinance on Delhi government.”

Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram has suggested that a “leader of united Opposition” will emerge in due course. He also expressed his disappointment with the way the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) raised the Delhi ordinance issue during the opposition meeting in Patna.

During the meeting, the Congress party’s stance on the Delhi ordinance issue created a significant disagreement among the opposition members. The AAP criticized the Congress for not supporting the Delhi government on this matter.

Chidambaram’s remarks indicate that the Congress party is still working towards finding a unified opposition leader who can effectively represent the collective interests of the opposition parties. However, he expressed discontent with the approach taken by the AAP in addressing the Delhi ordinance issue during the meeting.

The differences among opposition parties regarding certain issues highlight the challenges in achieving a cohesive stance on various matters. Nonetheless, the search for a united opposition leader and collaborative approach remains an ongoing process.

“The Congress’ hesitation and refusal to act as a team player will make it very difficult for the AAP to be a part of any alliance that includes the Congress,” the AAP had said in a statement.

On June 23, the first opposition meeting was held during which 17 parties decided to fight unitedly in the upcoming lok sabha elections to defeat the saffron party.

Addressing the meeting post four-hour opposition party meeting, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar informed that the leaders of all the 17 parties will again hold a meeting in the near future to chalk out the final strategy for election.

Kumar said that the meeting was successful and several leaders expressed their views, while keeping aside the differences. “17 parties came to the conclusion that they will fight unitedly in the upcoming lok sabha elections,” he added.
