NEW DELHI: Opposition parties will meet to discuss strategy on Monday for election of Rajya Sabha deputy chairman amid indications that the lead player Congress would give top priority to getting a non-NDA member to occupy the crucial post.
The meeting, to be steered by leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad will also discuss strategy for the coming monsoon session of Parliament, beginning on July 18. Congress leaders said there has not been any dialogue between the government and opposition on crucial issues including the bills stuck in the upper House like triple talaq and OBC commission.
Congress and Left bloc believe opposition has a strong chance of winning the election because key players are willing to make sacrifices. While Congress will seek suggestions from opposition parties, it will also keep its own candidate ready.
