The TDP leader said that meetings will be organised between the anti­BJP parties in the coming days where a future course of action will be chalked out.

"Condition of democracy and institutions such as CBI, RBI is very bad. The nation is going through great crisis. Today, democracy is in danger and the nation's people are in danger," Farooq Abdullah says following meeting with Pawar and Naidu.
