A united opposition exercise has been started to defeat the BJP for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. In this episode, Mamta Banerjee has also agreed to leave behind mutual differences with the Congress. This claim has been made by NCP chief Sharad Pawar. It has been made clear from his side that the opposition parties will unite to defeat the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Congress’s role in opposition unity confirmed?
Sharad Pawar says that Mamata Banerjee has agreed to end her mutual differences with the Congress. They are ready to make Congress a part of opposition solidarity for the national interest. Pawar also informed that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, former CM Farooq Abdullah are also not averse to joining hands with Congress. The only objective that has been set is to defeat BJP in 2024.
Now this is being considered a good sign for the Congress. Due to several electoral defeats and a weakening organization, some political parties were dreaming of opposition unity without the Congress. From KCR to Mamta Banerjee, these efforts were made. But now Sharad Pawar has made it clear with his statement that opposition unity is not possible without Congress. In such a situation, it is necessary to have the support of the Congress to defeat the BJP. At the same time, according to the NCP chief, Mamta Banerjee and Nitish Kumar are also going to give full support in this fight.
What are the differences of Mamta?
Sharad Pawar has even claimed that Mamata Banerjee herself has told him that he is ready to end his differences with the Congress for the benefit of the nation. Now for information, let us tell you that at this time everything is not going well between Mamta and Congress. After the West Bengal elections held last year, more tussle in the relationship had increased. In fact, TMC feels that BJP was able to win so many seats in Bengal elections because of Congress and CPM. But now Mamta Banerjee has agreed to forget that controversy. The NCP chief has also emphasized that leaders of many other opposition parties have also accepted that the BJP can be challenged only by taking the Congress along. In such a situation, the Congress is also going to play an important role in the picture of opposition unity that Pawar is seeing.
