However, the Prime Minister's Office refused to acknowledge the development. "I have no idea about the core group or any all-party meeting on Wednesday. The moment I get a confirmation, I would get back to you," said S Muthu Kumar, media in charge in the PMO in the absence of media advisor Dr Baru who resignation recently.
