As per news report of The Indian Express, The Opposition parties, after holding a meeting to chalk out strategy on attending the Winter Session of Parliament, had gone to meet Naidu over the matter. The parties included INC, DMK, Shiv Sena, NCP, CPM, CPI, RJD, IUML, MDMK, LJD, NC, RSP, TRS, Kerala Congress, VCK and AAP. With the suspension of 12 Rajya Sabha MPs deepening the political divide and threatening a washout of the entire winter session, backchannel talks were held between the government and the Opposition Monday to find an amicable resolution, but there was no immediate headway. The Congress, sources said, did not reveal its mind immediately. Some Congress leaders said boycotting the session would be an extreme response.
