New Delhi, Dec 9 (IBNS): Aam Aadmi Party supremo and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Telugu Desam Party boss-cum-Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu will attend a meeting of opposition parties in the national capital for the first time on Monday, NDTV said.

"The main agenda of the meeting is to chart the future course of action for forming a non-BJP front," said Naidu, who has called the meeting.

The Congress will be among those attending the meeting. Naidu had blamed the Congress for the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh (which led to the formation of Telangana) but the two parties, have of late come together again.

Naidu has already met a string of opposition leaders including Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah, Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Arvind Kejriwal over the last few weeks.

Besides Mamata, Congress president Rahul Gandhi and United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi, DMK's Stalin, Rashtriya Janata Dal's (RJD) Tejashwi Yadav, HD Kumaraswamy and others are likely to be there for the meeting, the report said.
