Sonia Gandhi to meet Opposition leaders today including Mamata Banerjee

The virtual meeting has been slated to start at 4:30 pm

Congress president Sonia Gandhi is in talks to meet at least 18 Opposition leaders including West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray today.
 
The virtual meeting, which has been slated to start at 4:30 pm, is aimed at putting up a united Opposition front on reaching out to people on the economic slowdown, the alleged mismanagement of the COVID-19, the Pegasus Project row, and the farmers’ protest, according to sources.
 
NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference chairman Farooq Abdullah, former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, and other leaders are included in the list.
 
This comes days after Opposition parties displayed unity against the government during the Monsoon Session of Parliament that concluded two days ahead of schedule.
 
Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and former National Democratic Alliance (NDA) ally Shiromani Akali Dal have not been invited to the meeting.
