The all-party meeting, called by the opposition party, is scheduled to held at Hotel Swosti Premium, Bhubaneswar. Parties like Congress, BJP, CPI, CPI(M) and others will participate in the meeting. In addition, some prominent NGOs, experts, intellectuals and other eminent personalities will also attend the meeting.
Mishra said to media persons that the CM and the ruling BJD party ignored his request for an all-party meeting over the Mahanadi row. Earlier, he had written to the Chief Minister on the issue twice but did not find any interest of CM on this issue, Mishra added.
