All opposition leaders from about 28 parties within the anti-BJP bloc gathered for a group photo session during the second day of the third INDIA alliance meet in Mumbai.
The leaders included Congress leaders Rahul and Sonia Gandhi, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, NCP leader Sharad Pawar, former Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, and National Conference leaders Farooq and Omar Abdullah, among others.
Meanwhile, INDIA alliance’s plans to unveil its new logo were put off for now.
Shiv Sena UBT leader Sanjay Raut, who stressed that the unveiling had not been cancelled but temporarily postponed, said some leaders had “raised objections to the need of the logo when every party has their own party poll symbol,” Indian Express reported.
“We, the INDIA parties congratulate the entire ISRO family — present and past — for its outstanding achievements which have made our country proud. It has taken six decades to build, expand and deepen ISRO’s capacities and capabilities. Chandrayaan-3 has thrilled the world, which is looking eagerly to the launch of Aditya-L1 tomorrow. We hope that the extraordinary accomplishments of ISRO strengthen the spirit of scientific temper in our society and give our youth the inspiration to excel in fields of scientific endeavour,” read a resolution passed by INDIA.
