The meeting of Opposition parties is being organised to discuss the grand alliance against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the 2019 Lok Sabha election and is scheduled for Monday in the national capital — a day ahead of the election results for five states.
The winter session of the Parliament will also begin on Tuesday. The session from December 11 to January 8 will be the last full-fledged session before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the very same day of the recent election results.
Change is coming.

The main agenda of the meeting is to chart the future course of action for forging opposition unity and a front of non-BJP parties to take on the BJP. The opposition parties are also expected to chalk out their strategy to corner the government in Parliament tomorrow on issues like the Rafale jet deal, farmers distress and communal polarisation in the wake of growing calls for Ram temple construction.
The parties likely to join the meeting are Congress, Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Trinamool Congress (TMC), National Conference (NC), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Communist Party of India (CPI), Communist Party of India (Marxist), Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD), Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).
