CHENNAI: CM MK Stalin is likely to attend online the meeting of the INDIA bloc which has been scheduled for Saturday in New Delhi. DMK’s Lok Sabha floor leader TR Baalu will attend the meeting in person. The meeting has been convened to discuss the next course of action after the results of the Lok Sabha elections are declared on June 4.

According to DMK sources, Baalu reached Delhi on Friday afternoon. The sources added Stalin had already requested the Congress to defer the meeting to June 2 to facilitate all CMs who are part of the INDIA bloc, including West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, attend the event. However, the Congress leadership expressed inability to defer the meeting due to other commitments and the interim bail of AAP leader and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal not getting extended.

Sources said the meeting might take crucial decisions from election of PM and formation of a common minimum programme in case the INDIA bloc wins seats to form a government at the centre.
