CPI-M sources said that the meeting was essentially to discuss the plans for holding a national convention in the defence of secularism. The convention is slated to be held on October 30 in the national capital.
The sources said that the convention will gather Left democratic and secular forces to adopt a joint programme to fight the menace of communalism, especially in the wake of the recent violence in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh and other parts of the country.
The evolving political situation in the country in the wake of the controversy over the Ordinance is believed to have figured in the parleys. This is the second meeting between Karat and Yadav in recent weeks.
The ex-UP CM had held talks with Karat and expressed the need to forge an alliance with the Left parties to work for the interests of farmers and other marginalized sections of the society.
