Indore: Sharad Yadav to lead opposition's 'save composite culture' meet today

Aiming to corner BJP government, rebel JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav is convening the opposition's "save composite culture" meet in Indore on Wednesday.

Yadav informed that several senior opposition leaders, including Digvijay Singh and Anand Sharma of the Congress, Sitaram Yechury of the CPI-M and Tariq Anwar of the NCP, are going to attend the meeting.

Violent protests were witnessed in Mandsaur by a section of farmers a few months back and opposition leaders are trying to build a campaign against the saffron party.

The party is ruling the state for the last 14 years.

The state will face the assembly polls by the end of next year along with Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, two other states ruled by the BJP.

"I will hold a similar campaign in Gujarat and Rajasthan. I will go to other states too," Sharad Yadav said.

The "save composite culture" meet was organised at the national level on August 17 in which Yadav had made clear his intentions to defy his party chief Nitish Kumar's move to ally with the BJP, claiming that the country's secularism and pluralism was under attack in the NDA government.
