Major parties likely to skip Congress’s Srinagar rally to mark culmination of Bharat Jodo Yatra on Jan 30

Kashmir, 22/1:Top leaders of Trinamool Congress, CPI(M) and Samajwadi Party are likely to skip the rally in Srinagar on January 30 to mark the culmination of the Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra, exposing the continuing uneasiness in the Opposition block over the question of who leads the grouping.

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge had last week written to presidents of 23 parties seeking their presence at the rally, which was seen as a bid to showcase unity of purpose among the Opposition ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha election. Congress leaders had said that the occasion would initiate talks about 2024.


However, prominent parties are not enthused though Rahul himself said that Congress has to be respectful to other Opposition parties. Congress has not invited AAP, BRS, YSR Congress, BJD, AIUDF and Akali Dal to the programme.
