Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge has declined PM Narendra Modi's invite to attend the Lokpal committee meeting for the fourth time in a row, as the Centre has not acceded to his demand that he be recognised as the Leader of Opposition.

He has stated his displeasure with the status in written letters on February 28, April 10, and July 18. "Despite these earlier letters of mine, the government continues to invite me as a special invitee to the Selection Committee, knowing very well what the outcome would be.

Pointing at section 8 of the Brief for the Selection Committee meeting to be held on Tuesday, Kharge said that the Committee comprises only four members — the Prime ...
