New Delhi, July 9: In the run up to the general elections next year, the DMK is organising a show of strength of opposition parties by inviting top political leaders to a meeting on federal structure in Chennai on August 30. Congress President Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee (TMC), General Secretaries of CPI and CPI-M Sudhakar Reddy and Sitaram Yechury, National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal are among those invited to the event.
DMK MP Tiruchi Siva met Kejriwal on Monday at his residence and extended him an invitation on behalf of his party leader M.K. Stalin.
