The ongoing turbulence in the opposition indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) may be temporarily put on hold as several leaders from the 28-party coalition are expected to attend telangana chief minister-elect revanth Reddy's swearing-in ceremony in hyderabad on Thursday.

According to a congress functionary familiar with the preparations, reddy, who led the congress to its first victory in telangana, has personally called several opposition leaders in the last two days and asked them to attend the event.

"The vast majority of them (opposition leaders) assured him their party would be represented at the ceremony." According to an unnamed functionary, Some politicians are set to fly on the same airplane as senior congress leader sonia Gandhi.

Gandhi would attend the ceremony, congress chairman mallikarjun Kharge, and other key party figures, according to the functionary.

A trinamool congress (TMC) leader stated that reddy personally invited West bengal Chief minister Mamata Banerjee to the function. "He called Banerjee and asked her to attend the swearing-in ceremony." "Because Banerjee has pre-scheduled programs, she told reddy that a senior leader from her party will represent the TMC at the event," the unnamed TMC leader added.

The congress has faced pressure in the last three days from its india partners, who want negotiations on seat-sharing for next year's lok sabha elections to begin soon.

The news comes on the heels of the Congress' defeats in rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and chhattisgarh, three indian states where it faced off against the bharatiya janata party (BJP).

The congress had halted seat-sharing talks in expectation of a strong showing in the assembly elections, which might have given it an edge in any negotiations, and had refused to enter into any informal arrangements in the three states. That plan proved to backfire, as the congress lost control of the governments in rajasthan and chhattisgarh and failed to unseat the bjp in Madhya Pradesh.

The Congress's plan to call a meeting of india allies on wednesday was also derailed when at least three non-Congress chief ministers and a former cm refused to attend, prompting the grand old party to call a coordination meeting of the bloc's parliamentary party leaders instead.

According to party sources, the congress attempted to use Reddy's oath-taking ceremony to ease existing tensions among india allies.

Reddy was urged by his party to invite prominent Opposition figures, according to a senior non-Congress leader.

Reddy leads the party's telangana unit and was key in the congress defeating the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) in the recently ended assembly elections, the first time the party has defeated a regional organisation in two decades.
