Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) pointed a finger at the NDA government claiming that they have not been invited to the all-party meet. However, it was clarified that only parties with 5 or more MPs have been invited to participate in the all-party meet. AAP has 4 MPs and therefore, did not receive an invite.

The all-party meeting called by the Prime Minister comes even as the Congress and BJP-led Centre sparred over the tensions on the border.
