New Delhi:

The Bahujan Samaj Party is likely to skip a meeting of opposition parties convened on Monday to discuss the situation arising out of violence in various university campuses and protests over the Citizenship Amendment Act. Sources in the BSP said the party may not send a representative at the meet. The BSP’s differences with the Congress are said to be the reason behind the move, the sources said.

Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress has already announced its decision to stay away from the meet.

When the opposition members had approached the President against the amended Citizenship law, the BSP had not joined them. It had met the President on the issue later.

Meanwhile, the Delhi BJP's women wing took out a march in Lutyens' Delhi on Sunday in support of the amended Citizenship Act.

Carrying cut-outs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, party volunteers participated in the march from the Delhi BJP's office on Pandit Pant Marg to Central Park in Connaught Place.

The march was organised by the women's wing of the party and led by the party's New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi.

"Our youth are being misled by creation of an atmosphere of confusion. It is our responsibility to apprise them about this law because they are related to our family," Lekhi said.

She also alleged that students were being misled by some political parties for their own gain.
