Congress leader Sonia Gandhi has invited leaders of all opposition parties for dinner on the 13th of March and she hopes to forge a united front against the BJP. This move is seen as a step towards laying the foundation for a united front in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
This may be to counter a non BJP, non Congress front that is currently doing the rounds. Several leaders have confirmed their attendance. The coming together of all opposition parties would mean attack of the BJP both outside and inside the Parliament. Meanwhile the BJP has also called for a dinner meeting with all the BJP MP’s and Prime Minister Modi and party President Amit Shah.
