Reluctance of three opposition parties to Sonia Gandhi’s invite

Coming up of Demonetisation or notes ban in India has made Congress catch the limelight in its continuous attempt to oppose the decision of the government. Congress is also attempting to join hands with other opposition parties outside the Parliament with a meeting and joint press conference addressed by Sonia Gandhi to which Left and Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United has expressed their inability to attend. Sharad Pawar's Nationalist Congress Party has also shown their unwillingness to attend the meeting.

Congress is expecting to give a big attack on Tuesday to Modi Government and Demonetisation after leading at least 14 parties in a united protest in Parliament. Left's Sitaram Yechury expressed his views on this saying that it is not a simple process to unite parties on a platform outside Parliament. He added that “success of any such united opp activity always depends on prior consultations."

Janata Dal United leader KC Tyagi was clear enough in saying that his party should know the agendas first. He added that all the parties read PM’s decision of Demonetisation which aims at eradicating black money very differently.  On one hand, Mamata Banerjee's party is opposed to demonetisation and on the other hand the JDU has supported the Modi government.

Since everything has its drawbacks, temporary or permanent, it does not seem a possible thing for parties to unite under the same roof and protest against something which is viewed differently by each party.
