A number of senior opposition leaders attended the dinner along with Congress MPs, a move viewed as an attempt to bring them closer to Mr Gandhi.
The dinner comes at a time when the opposition is seeking to corner the government on various issues in the truncated winter session of Parliament that started on December 15.
The opposition will formalise its strategy soon after the Assembly election results of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh tomorrow.
