Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav will skip Congress president Sonia Gandhi's Iftar dinner due to his also holding a similar function on the same day.

According to reports, Gandhi has invited leaders from all non-BJP aligned parties for an Iftar dinner in an attempt to show a message of opposition unity, including those from the Trinamool Congress (TMC), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP), along with the leaders of allies Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and National Conference (NC).

The Congress plans to go on the offensive against the BJP in the upcoming Monsoon Session of the Parliament over the Lalitgate issue, involving External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, as well as over the Vyapam scam.
