"It's at a nascent stage and talks are going on with other non-BJP, non-Congress parties to chalk out a strategy", a TMC leader told Firstpost on the condition of anonymity.
Not only Congress but other opposition parties are set to corner the Modi government over the so-called "Niravgate".
This was the first day the Lok Sabha met after the recess of the Budget session.
The Fugitive Economic Offenders Bill, 2018 approved by Cabinet would help in laying down measures to deter economic offenders from evading the process of Indian law, by remaining outside the jurisdiction of Indian courts.
At the meeting of the Lok Sabha's Business Advisory Committee chaired by Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, representatives of the Congress, Trinamool Congress and the BJD insisted that the debate should be taken up at 12 noon for four hours and after that other issues should come up for discussion.Rajya Sabha also saw repeated adjournments with an irate Chairman Venkaiah Naidu asking the MPs "are we in Parliament or somewhere else".
The BJP always holds up electoral victories as a certificate of being vindicated in the people's court and the party will once again milk it to deflect attacks over the PNB scam.
In the Rajya Sabha, the government has listed "The State Banks (Repeal and Amendment) Bill, 2017" and "The Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, 2017".
The passage of the OBC bill, that seeks to provide constitutional status for the OBC commission, is another issue high on the government agenda. "We will also demand answers from Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the scam happened right under his watch", he said.
The Congress has made it clear the government "cannot escape responsibility" in the fraud and the flight of diamantaires Nirav and his uncle Choksi and demanded a clarification from Modi. The Congress party has accused the BJP of doing "vendetta politics" and deviating the focus from bank fraud.
CPI leader D Raja said the issue of PNB fraud will be taken up and the new bills that the government proposes to bring would also be discussed. Two more notices have been issued on this matter. We have issues for every day in Parliament,"he said".
The BJP, however, will try to build on the momentum gained from the stunning victory in Tripura and the good showing in Meghalaya and Nagaland to demoralise rivals.
"If their target is West Bengal our target is Red Fort. BJP did not win Tripura, the Left surrendered it", he said, claiming that Prime Minister Modi will not deliver his address from the Red Fort in 2019.
