Others present at the event will be those who had participated in West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's rally in Kolkata earlier this month, said Delhi AAP convener Gopal Rai.
With just around two months before the polls, the rally will serve to bring the opposition leaders together in firming up a 'Mahagathbandhan' (grand alliance) to challenge the BJP and its National Democratic Alliance (NDA) partners in the polls, sources said.
The AAP and the Congress had talks of an alliance ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, but the local leadership of the grand old party is believed to have been against it.
