Union Minister Ramdas Athawale on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Modi is alone enough to take on all opposition parties that want to forge unity to take on BJP in the 2024 elections.
Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Ramdas Athawale on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Modi is alone enough to take on all opposition parties that want to forge unity to take on BJP in the 2024 elections.
Speaking to ANI in Mumbai, Atawale said National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is really strong under the leadership of PM Modi. “If opposition parties want to come together, they can. PM Modi alone is enough to take on all of them. NDA is really strong under the leadership of PM Modi,” Union Minister said on Bihar CM Nitish Kumar meeting Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
On Wednesday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav met with Congress leaders Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi, as well as Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
The opposition parties are attempting to gather as many opposition parties as possible in order to take on the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
According to sources, the opposition parties will meet by the end of April after deliberations, and Nitish Kumar and Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge will meet with them.
After the meeting, Kharge talked of fighting the polls unitedly. Rahul Gandhi also talked of “standing together and fighting together”. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said it is essential for all opposition parties to unite and oust the BJP-led government in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
The meetings are being seen as an attempt by Congress and other opposition parties to take forward their “unity” displayed during the budget session of Parliament session that concluded on April 6. The session saw continuous disruptions over the opposition’s demand for a JPC probe into the Hindenburg-Adani row.
The opposition parties also slammed the government over the disqualification of Rahul Gandhi from Lok Sabha following his conviction by a Surat court in a criminal defamation case.
