Kolkata, Nov 28 (TIWN) As the Parliament's Winter session begins, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has called an emergency meeting of her Trinamool Congress' Working Committee on Monday to decide the future course of action in strengthening the footprints of the party on the national canvas.

Congress leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said it is a party tradition that the leader of opposition calls everyone ahead of every session. However, if anyone feels that by joining hands with the Congress they will be seen as opposing the government, they need not do so.  Mr Chowdhury's remarks came a day after the Trinamool Congress said it "most probably will not attend" the meeting called by Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday morning, the first day of the Winter Session.  Mr Kharge has called the meeting to ensure unity and synergy among opposition parties during the session.  "Anyone who wishes to come (to the meeting) can come. If one does not want (to come), it is their wish. There is no compulsion. It is a tradition of Parliament and the Congress goes by that tradition," Mr Chowdhury said.  "It is our duty to call opposition parties to discuss the issues before (the) Parliament (session), but if they feel that by joining hands with us they will be seen as opposing the government, they need not do so. Those who do not want to fight the government may not attend," he said when asked about the TMC's decision.  "It is up to the TMC to attend or not," he added.
