Congress Hosted A Dinner For 20 Parties To Forge A Coalition To Defeat BJP, Gets Trolled

Published on 14 March, 2018 at 4:34 pm By

In what could be described as “dinner diplomacy,” United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Chairperson Sonia Gandhi hosted a dinner for opposition politicos on March 13 in which leaders of 20 parties, including the Congress, attended. Political pundits see the move as an effort by the Congress to put up a broader front against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Despite the meeting bearing a political tone, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala termed it as a meeting for friendship and better dialogue between parties. The prominent leaders in attendance were NCP’s Sharad Pawar, SP’s Ram Gopal Yadav, BSP’s Satish Chandra Misra and former chief ministers Omar Abdullah, Babulal Marandi, Hemant Soren and Jiten Ram Manjhi, besides JD(U)’s Sharad Yadav and RLD’s Ajit Singh. The RJD was represented by Tejashwi Yadav and Misa Bharti.

The others present included TMC’s Sudip Bandyopadhyay, CPI’s D Raja and CPM’s Mohammad Salim, DMK’s Kanimozhi, AIUDF’s Baddrauddin Ajmal and leaders of Kerala Congress, besides Kupender Reddy of the JD(S). Senior Congress leaders present during the meeting included Rahul Gandhi, former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mallikarjun Kharge, Ahmed Patel, AK Antony and Randeep Surjewala.
