The discussions have seen Sonia being interested to a “joint” opposition candidate as leaders she has met expressed concern over promotion of belligerent and bigoted social attitudes exemplified by violence by cow vigilantes.

Though no names were discussed, there has been an agreement that opposition parties need to mobilise against the Modi government and signal that they are ready to oppose BJP’s hardline postures on social and political issues.

Opposition figures who met Sonia include JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar and CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury. CPI’s D Raja met the Congress chief on Monday.
