She called upon the Uttar Pradesh government to take immediate cognizance of the crime and bring to book those responsible and asked Congress workers to provide relief to the families of the victims.

While senior NCP leader Praful Patel publicly declared that their party was boycotting the meeting, the Congress put up a courageous face, stating that Pawar had called to say that he would have personally participated in the meeting but was unable to do so as he was unwell.

Congress high command Sonia Gandhi had invited nearly all the opposition parties to unite as one entity against the BJP-led government on Friday, ahead of the last day of the monsoon session.

Rahul Gandhi also said that the Congress is continuously working to improve the situation of employment in the country. The JD (U) national executive will be chaired by the party chief Nitish Kumar and a decision to join the NDA government will be formally announced, he said.

NCP was, however, conspicuous by its absence, especially in the backdrop of the just concluded Rajya Sabha polls in Gujarat on Tuesday where it was at logger heads with the Congress party over support to senior leader Ahmed Patel. Why should we be accused of not supporting it?

Earlier, the youth clashed with the security forces in Awneera to break the cordon around the village on Saturday. Many among the injured have suffered bullet and pellet injuries, doctors said, but their condition is stable.

On Saturday, JD (U) members of the Upper House members backing Nitish met Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu to hand him a letter appointing R.C.P. Singh as their leader in place of Yadav in the House. "That is why we made a decision to boycott this meeting", Praful Patel said.

Though Anwar Ali of his party was present at today's session, he is seen as part of the much smaller camp of Sharad Yadav, who is prepping to split from Mr Kumar over his new arrangement with the BJP.

At the meeting, West Bengal chief minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee proposed a few joint programmes during the three months before the winter session of Parliament begins in November. Suggesting that the opposition parties had to build an "alternative narrative" to counter PM Narendra Modi and BJP, Yechury said, "This could be done through effective strategy and by taking up pro-people issues such as agrarian crisis". Yechury said the Left parties in Bihar will take a decision soon on whether to participate or not in the rally.

Accusing the Modi government of indulging in false and hollow promises, the congress leader said people know that Congress will do, what it says.

Speaking about article 371 (J), Gandhi said Congress has fought with the people for this for their development.
