'Bypoll results shows that voters are angry with BJP', says Rahul Gandhi

"This dinner was not hosted for politics, but for amity and friendship".

The dinner took place against the backdrop of a standoff between the government and the Opposition in Parliament, which has seen continuous disruptions since the start of the second half of the Budget session on March 5.

Speaking at the popular "Aap Ki Adalat" television programme hosted by India TV journalist Rajat Sharma here, he also claimed that Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi will migrate to some other safer seats out of fear of losing their traditional constituencies of Amethi and Rae Bareli.

Rahul Gandhi tweeted after the dinner that there was "much political talk" but also "tremendous positive energy, warmth and genuine affection".

Surjewala said at a time when the Centre was not allowing Parliament to function, it was obvious that leaders of various parties would get together to discuss the current political situation.

"The effort is on". The effort is going on. It could not be taken up amid objections raised by opposition parties who have written to Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan requesting her intervention. Chandrababu Naidu is angry, Akalis are also angry.

To a question on whether by saying that he will not celebrate Eid, was he not confining himself as a leader of Hindus, Adityanath answered in the negative and said Hindusim was his faith and religion and he was extremely proud of it. "TRS is not happy".

The RJD was represented by two children of party chief Lalu Prasad - former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav and Rajya Sabha MP Misa Bharti.

He also accused the government of running away from debate on key issues such as banking frauds. "When the government does not have interest to run Parliament, then it is natural that leaders of opposition parties, who are concerned about the problems faced by the people, will discuss the country's politics. This is our duty to let it work and the government has been doing everything to ensure that it happens", he said.

Media reports said leaders of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Samajwadi Party (SP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Trinamool Congress, DMK and Left parties attended the dinner among others.

Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mallikarjun Kharge, Ahmed Patel, AK Antony and Randeep Surjewala were among the Congress leaders present.

"The one who stood by the mandate has been vindicated", Yadav said, referring to his opposition to Kumar's alliance with the BJP.

Sources said while BSP has been invited, but its leader Mayawati may not send a representative as her party has aligned with JD-S for the Karnataka polls likely in April/March this year.

The elephant cycled it to glory, and the lotus withered, but it is the dinner that Congress supremo Sonia Gandhi hosted last night where they chewed plans about the larger opposition unity. Trinmool Congress chief mamta Banerjee had also reflected the discordance in the past and launched consultations with regional parties to form a "federal front" and even offered its leadership to TRS chief K Chandrasekhara rao.
