New Delhi: As Parliament remained stalled on Wednesday for the second succesive day on coal blocs allocation issue, key UPA ally and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee suggested an all-party meeting to end the logjam.

Making the suggestion at the UPA Coordination Committee meeting held here this evening, sources said, she said the Lok Sabha Speaker should be requested to take the initiative to convene the all-party meeting.

Her remarks assume significance in the backdrop of BJP`s growing isolation in the opposition camp with NDA constituent Janata Dal (U), Left parties and BJD disfavouring continuous paralysis of parliamentary proceedings and advocating discussion on the CAG report on coal blocs allocation in the House.
