Rahul meet Yechury to forge alliance

Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday met CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury amid demands from opposition parties that the Congress take lead in exploring possibilty of forging a broad-based alliance to counter an aggressive BJP both inside and outside Parliament.

The 30-minute meeting at the Congress Parliamentary Party office here saw the leaders exchanging views on a range of issues – the GST Bill that is set to be a reality, the controversy over EVMs, the assault on innocents in Alwar over cow protection.

Over tea and sandwiches, the two leaders are learnt to have agreed to force amendments to the GST-related legislations being discussed in the Rajya Sabha when the bills are taken up for voting on Thursday.

Rahul’s meeting with Yechury comes close on the heels of his interaction with NCP president Sharad Pawar. Rahul and Pawar had discussed countering BJP in Maharashtra as well as nationally, but wanted the Congress to take lead in this regard.
