Congress leader Ahmed Patel on Wednesday expressed his gratitude towards JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav, whose party had supported the BJP but its lone MLA voted for Patel.
Leaders of 16 opposition parties, including Trinamool Congress Chief Mamata Banerjee, Yechury, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah, RJD's JPN Yadav, CPI's D Raja, SP's Naresh Agarwal, RLD's Ajit Singh among others met here to chalk out the joint opposition programme for the next three months. Within hours of Ansari marking his presence at the meeting, the JD (U) suspended him from the parliamentary party. His turnaround comes after Mrs Gandhi's party, the Congress, suggested that he had betrayed it in the recent Rajya Sabha election in Gujarat. The NCP justified the decision and said its leaders were very angry.

Asked if he believed that the Modi-led BJP can be defeated by a united opposition, the CPI (M) General Secretary said: "Defeating is later, first let us build an alternate narrative". The party, which returned to power in May 2013 after a decade in the opposition, will contest the assembly election on the basis of its performance over the last four years, including various welfare schemes for the people across the state, he said.
