As Narendra Modi government at the Centre completes three years successfully, leaders of almost all Opposition parties are meeting today in Delhi on the call of Congress president Sonia Gandhi. The meeting is significant because for the first time leaders of all anti-BJP and anti-Modi parties are coming together to discuss important issues of relevance to them.

The top opposition leaders are also expected to attend a lunch meet hosted by Gandhi in the Parliament House library. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, however, will not be present, but Sharad Yadav would represent the JD(U). Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has not been invited.

Here we take a look at five things the Opposition leaders are expected to discuss today to take on Modi government:

1. Presidential candidate: It would be a big loss of face for the Modi government, if the opposition pull a win in the Presidential election, or manage to come up with a name who may become a consensus candidate for all. The opposition leaders are expected to deliberate on such a consensus candidate today.

2. Joint front for forthcoming Assembly elections: With BJP footprint expanding at an unbelievable speed across the country, the Opposition leaders are expected to discuss on the possibility of fighting upcoming Assembly elections in Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka together.

3. Bringing rival opposition parties on the same page: During the meeting, it is expected that the leaders would discuss how to bring together rival parties such as Mayawati-led BSP and Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party, or TMC and Left, together for putting up a joint front against the BJP.

4. Roadmap for 2019 election: As Modi government completes three years at the centre successfully, the opposition leaders are expected to start working on a roadmap for 2019 General elections, which has been predicted to be a cakewalk for PM Modi.

5. State of India, its economy, Saharanpur caste violence: The opposition parties are expected to discuss about the state of India today, the issue of disturbance in Kashmir, alleged rise of Hindutva forces and the recent caste-based violence in Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh.

    All anti Indian and national political parties have been trying their best to halt the march of BJP across all the states and to win 2019 general elections . I just fail to understand what the main ideology nation-wide for the left groups is . What do they wish to do for the workers and farmers of India ? Have they forgotten "left movement " completely in this country ? Today these so called groups are simply " anti government They are mostly relying on " Sonia-Rahul Congress or Mamata TMC or RJD JDU BSP" without any national programme of their own . Another interesting point to be noted is ..... who do these parties like to project as an alternative to Mr. Modi ? All the invitees sat together, had lunch practically without any common aim . Alas ! The Left have been still dreaming ...... uming an unfounded self proclaimed "king makers " , when their existence at the national stage is pathetically insignificant. Sitaram Yechuri's leadership can do no good

    Let the Opposition to brain storm to qualify for a good opposition to the ru Government rather than oppose everything the government do. The people of India are not donkeys, they are watching every activities of all parties whether in government or in opposition. The government is run by people of India and not by the hapless opposition.
