A meeting on Tuesday at veteran politician Sharad Pawar’s house, which drew outsized attention over reports of Third Front manoeuvres ahead of the 2024 polls, featured eight parties including Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress, Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Left. The Congress was missing.
Former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha said he had asked Sharad Pawar to host the gathering of his outfit Rashtra Manch to “debate current events”.
“The meeting was called by Yashwant Sinha, not Sharad Pawar, this was not a political meet,” stressed Majeed Memon, a leader of Mr Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and a founding member of the Rashtra Manch. For the NCP, leaving out the Congress, its ally in Maharashtra, would be awkward.
