Congress Defers INDIA Block Meeting As Many Leaders Decide to Skip It

New Delhi: A meeting of the INDIA Opposition Alliance called up by the Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday in New Delhi was postponed.

The meeting was postponed shortly after the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav informed that they would skip the meet. On Monday Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said she too would not attend the meeting.

This meeting was called up by the Congress president after his party was defeated in assembly polls in three state elections.

According to sources, this meeting of the INDIA Bloc may be held in the third week of December as per the convenience of most leaders of the alliance.

According to NDTV, Kumar, Yadav and Banerjee weren’t the only senior INDIA leaders who backed out of Wednesday’s meeting. Leaders of some other regional parties are also grumbling over the Congress insisting that it will continue to fight elections largely on its own.

Both Akhilesh Yadav and Mamata Banerjee have stated that the Congress party’s defeats could have been smaller, or even averted if it had agreed to share seats with allies.
