Trinamool Congress and Aam Aadmi Party skipped the opposition meeting called by the Congress ahead of the commencement of winter session of Parliament on Monday.

The meeting called by Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge was attended by 11 parties.

RSP’s NK Premachandran.

The leaders spoke of the Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021, listed for introduction and passage in the Lok Sabha on Monday.

The opposition also sought a law on MSP and decided to work together to demand it.

Inflation, Chinese aggression, Pegasus, BSF jurisdiction in border states were other issues the leaders agreed to cooperate on.

Chinks in the opposition’s armour, however, were visible with the TMC and AAP staying away.

Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said if parties did not want to be seen as opposing the government it was up to them.

Several Shiv Sena and NCP MPs are away to attend leader Sanjay Raut’s daughter’s wedding in Mumbai on Monday.
