NEW DELHI: The Centre has called for an all-party meeting on  November 15 to discuss about the upcoming Winter Session of Parliament.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to attend the meet.

The two controversial events of the recent past — the suicide of a former Indian Army soldier Ram Kishan Grewal and the manner in which eight SIMI under trials were killed in an encounter in Bhopal earlier on October 31 — are likely to be taken up in this session.

To add to the Bharatiya Janata Party's woes, the third dimension has emerged in the form of the missing Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Najeeb Ahmed, who reportedly had scuffle with some of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members.

The Winter session usually starts in the third or fourth week of November, but has been advanced this time to achieve the government's ambitious target of rolling out the Goods And Services Tax (GST) - a uniform indirect tax regime that will subsume all central and local levies such as excise, octroi and Value Added Tax (VAT) from April 1 next year.
