Opposition Unity Exercise
In the last few months, Mamata Banerjee has held several meetings with several non-BJP and non-Congress leaders on the issue of opposition unity against the BJP in the 2024 elections. Last month, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav met him in Kalighat. In the meeting, both the leaders agreed to keep distance from Congress and focus on unity of regional forces against BJP in 2024 elections.

‘The talk of unity is strong’
Last week, he asked his Tamil Nadu counterpart M.K. Discussed the unity of the opposition forces against Stalin and the role of governors in the opposition-ruled state in the country. In the recent past, Mamata Banerjee has emphasized in all her public meetings that it is possible to defeat the BJP if the opposition unites ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. However, she has always avoided the issue of whether the Congress is also a part of this opposition blueprint. Talking to reporters in Patna today, Chief Minister Nitish said that we are trying to unite more and more parties of the country against the BJP. We will all make efforts and work unitedly. He said that recently I met many opposition leaders in New Delhi. My aim is to unite the opposition parties against the BJP before the general elections.
