According to sources, another meeting of the opposition alliance is likely to be held soon. The three leaders discussed the current political situation and issues related to the alliance, which are likely to arise in the upcoming Assembly and Lok Sabha Elections wants to compete with BJP.
The discussion between the three leaders on Friday took place at a time when a joint public meeting of the INDIA Alliance in Bhopal in October has been cancelled.
Sources said that the joint meeting could not be held after Congress leader Kamal Nath protested against the statements of DMK leaders including Udhayanidhi Stalin against Sanatan Dharma.
News agency PTI quoted sources as saying that some opposition leaders are suggesting that the next meeting of the India Alliance will be held in West Bengal.
This meeting also comes at a time when the parties included in the opposition alliance Mahavikas Aghadi in Maharashtra have formed a nine-member coordination committee to discuss seat sharing in the state for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
The committee includes three leaders each from each component (Shiv Sena (UBT), Congress and Sharad Pawar faction of NCP). Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan on Thursday (October 5) confirmed the formation of the coordination committee of MVA.

There are 80 Lok Sabha seats in UP and 48 seats in Maharashtra. Chavan had said that the Congress leadership in Maharashtra will hold a meeting with other MVA allies to decide its position in the seat-sharing talks, after which the seat-sharing formula will be decided in talks with the allies.
