A day after the Nationalist Congress Party's (NCP) split, the meeting of the opposition parties that was slated for July 13-14 in Bengaluru has been postponed. The meet was postponed to July 17-18, said Congress.

Congress General Secretary K.C Venugopal in his latest tweet said that “After a hugely successful All-Opposition meeting in Patna, we will be holding the next meeting in Bengaluru on 17 and 18 July, 2023.”

“We are steadfast in our unwavering resolve to defeat the fascist and undemocratic forces and present a bold vision to take the country forward,” he added.

Earlier, reports said that the postponement was due to the monsoon sessions of the Bihar and Karnataka Assembly.

The monsoon session of the Bihar Assembly is slated for 10-24 July.

JD(U)'s Nitish Kumar, reportedly, asked Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge to postpone the meeting as he and Tejashwi Yadav would be busy in the assembly session.

Among others, the recent NCP split, rift widening between the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) questions the strength of the opposition unity.
