On the second meeting of the Opposition parties, which is scheduled to be held in Bengaluru, JSP general secretary¬†Siva Sankjar said he has “no idea about the meeting”.

Meanwhile, ahead of the NDA meeting, founder leader of Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party, Om Prakash Rajbhar, on Sunday formally joined the BJP-led National Democractic Alliance (NDA) government after calling on Union Home Minister Amit Shah in the national capital on July 14.
