The Congress said that the dinner should not be seen from the "prism of politics" and was for "friendship and better dialogue between parties."
"This dinner hosted by Sonia Gandhi ji for opposition parties should not be seen from the prism of politics, it was for friendship and better dialogue between parties," Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.
The dinner is expected to set the tone for opposition unity in the run up to the next general elections.
Sonia Gandhi has called for opposition unity and said parties should set aside their minor differences to get together in the larger interest of keeping the BJP out of power in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
