Sonia to chair opposition leaders' meeting on Friday, Sharad invited

Narendra Modi

Though the NCP had claimed to have voted in favour of the Congress candidate in Gujarat, the party feels it has reasons to be sceptic since the lone lawmaker of JDU in Gujarat also made the same claim and the number that went in favour of Ahmed Patel does not accommodate both.

The meeting also made a decision to constitute a small coordination committee to discuss future strategy against the BJP-led NDA government.

Meanwhile, with Ahmed Patel emerging victorious in the Gujarat Rajya Sabha polls, the NCP on Wednesday reminded the Congress that this triumph happened due to their help, and the grand old party must remember this in the future.
