Despite defeat in the election to the state’s lone Rajya Sabha seat, a delegation of Secular Progressive Front, comprising Congress and parties supporting it, met Governor Najma Heptulla on Friday evening and reiterated the demand for a special session of the Assembly so that the motion of no-confidence, which has been already moved, could be taken up.
