A day after naming their coalition INDIA, the opposition parties decided on “Jeetega Bharat” as their tagline on Wednesday, setting the tone for their 2024 Lok Sabha campaign.
“The tagline, which says “India will win” in Hindi, is most likely to be translated into several regional tongues,” according to sources.
Second opposition meeting
The presence of Sonia Gandhi in the second opposition meeting seems to be an effort to put the Congress, the largest Opposition party in the Lok Sabha, back in the lead of the platform for the united Opposition.
They claim that during the meeting on Tuesday in Bengaluru, many leaders felt that the word “Bharat” is appropriate in the alliance’s name. A senior leader stated, “It turned out that it would be in the tagline.” Many leaders emphasized that it took a team effort from several leaders to come up with the tagline.
The united opposition will field one candidate per seat to take on the BJP. Discussions about a seat-sharing formula are on the agenda for the meeting on Tuesday. At the previous gathering, the parties decided to talk about the state-level candidates and specific seats.
