After 2024, there will be a coalition government in this country, says Uddhav Thackeray faction leader Sanjay Raut
Shiv Sena (UTB) leader Sanjay Raut on Wednesday said, "After 2024, there will be a coalition government in this country." This comes after Raut on Tuesday said that the chief of his party, Uddhav Thackeray, along with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar will attend the meeting of non-BJP parties in Patna on June 12.
Raut also agreed with Chidambaram's proposal to field joint candidates on 400 to 450 seats against the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
“What Chidambaram had said is true. There are around 450 seats where if one-to-one (common) candidates are fielded (against the BJP) then the entire verdict on the country's politics will change," Raut told news agency ANI, adding the decision on this will be made on June 12 in the meeting.
Chidambaram stated on Monday that efforts are underway to unite non-BJP parties for the 2024 Lok Sabha election. There is a possibility of fielding common candidates on 400 to 450 seats against the BJP.
“Our party [Congress] line is that all the non-BJP parties must get together as far as possible. If they come together, then it is possible that on 400 to 450 seats, we can field one common candidate against the BJP but that is still a desire; an aspiration," the former Union minister had said. He added that the opposition is beginning to realise the ‘necessity to unite and put up a united opposition front against the BJP’.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar seeks to forge a unified non-BJP front for the upcoming general elections. Talks with Congress leaders Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi were held to strategize and lay the groundwork for an important meeting on June 12.
