Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance
Top representatives from 26 opposition parties gathered in Bengaluru today to discuss the front that will oppose the BJP in 2024. They choose I-N-D-I-A (Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance) as the name.
Here are the top 10 details on this significant story:
# “Can you take on INDIA, NDA, or BJP?” After the meeting, Mamata Banerjee spoke at a press conference. “We cherish the motherland. We are the nation’s patriotic citizens. She added that people — Hindus, Dalits, minorities, and farmers in Bengal and Manipur — are in jeopardy by the BJP, whose sole objective is purchasing and trading with governments,” she said.
# The next meeting of the opposition will take place in Mumbai, according to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, and they will form an 11-person coordination committee. When asked who would be in charge of the alliance, Mr. Kharge responded that they would choose a convenor at the meeting in Mumbai. “These are minor issues,” he said.
# At the press conference, Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, Uddhav Thackeray, the leader of the Shiv Sena (UBT), and Rahul Gandhi, the former president of the Congress, all spoke. According to Mr. Kharge, many leaders were absent from the media event because they were hurrying to the airport for their flights back home.
# Mallikarjun Kharge, the president of the Congress, declared during the meeting that his party had no interest in holding the position of Prime Minister.
# Sources suggest Sonia Gandhi, former UPA chairperson, can serve as front’s president and Nitish Kumar as its convenor.
# Along with Mrs. Gandhi, other participants in the two-day meeting include Rahul Gandhi, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Mamata Banerjee, Nitish Kumar, MK Stalin, Hemant Soren, and RJD leader Lalu Prasad.
# Mamata Banerjee and Sonia Gandhi sat next to each other at the dinner gathering last night at the Taj West End Hotel. The start of the meeting was put on hold by a one-on-one conversation they had earlier that lasted nearly 20 minutes, according to sources.
# The Congress party is now in a strong position as a result of the party’s victory in the most recent Karnataka assembly election, which has also inspired the opposition.
# Congress maintains a low profile under Mallikarjun Kharge, seeking opinions from other leaders to expand its influence.
# Senior Congressman Pawan Khera responded that “all parties having the determination and courage to battle the BJP are welcome” when asked if HD Kumaraswamy’s Janata Dal-Secular would attend.
