After Lalu Yadav's anti-BJP rally planned for August 27 in Patna, opposition unity will face its big test in Gujarat where the Congress has made a decision to launch a satyagraha on September 1 along with other opposition parties, to protest what it calls are attacks on tribals in the state.

The incident triggered a spate of reactions from the opposition parties, with the Samajwadi Party and the Congress seeking the resignation of the state health minister.

Syed Zafar Islam the Bharatiya Janata Party spokesman told the reporters,"The opposition can never over rule the BJP with any meeting that they conduct". The BJP camp also said that the NCP MLAs did not vote in its favour, suggesting that there could have been more cross-voting from the Congress ranks. "After the Congress MLA's betraying its own party shows how strong they are?"

NCP was, however, conspicuous by its absence, especially in the backdrop of the just concluded Rajya Sabha polls in Gujarat on Tuesday where it was at logger heads with the Congress party over support to senior leader Ahmed Patel.
