NEW DELHI, FEB. 25. The National Democratic Alliance today decided to discuss the outcome of the latest Assembly elections and the changes in labour laws after a short meeting here today.
The NDA, which met here for the first time after the Assembly results in the four States, decided to hold discussions at a later date as the Prime Minister, Atal Behari Vajpayee, and other leaders had official engagements later in the evening.
Briefing correspondents, the NDA Convener and Defence Minister, George Fernandes, said he had received a request from the allies for a discussion both on the Assembly poll results as also the changes being proposed in the labour laws. Apparently, the Shiv Sena MP, Anant Geete, had sought a discussion in the NDA on the amendments to the Industrial Disputes Act and the Indian Contract Act which have not gone down well with the party.
Those who attended the meeting at the residence of the Prime Minister included Union Ministers, L.K. Advani, Jaswant Singh, Yashwant Sinha, Pramod Mahajan, Vijay Goel, Arjun Charan Sethi, Sharad Yadav, Nitish Kumar, Ram Vilas Paswan, Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, the Haryana Chief Minister, Om Prakash Chautala, Anant Geete, E Ponnuswamy and Sukh Ram.
