New Delhi. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge said on Wednesday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi tells people in every election – choose me. Is he going to become Chief Minister from Prime Minister? Let him tell from where he will contest the elections? People vote on local issues. People are fed up with inflation and unemployment under Modi government.
When he was asked in Kalaburagi, Karnataka whether the elections of 5 states will be the semi-finals of the general elections of 2024? On this Kharge said- It is not so. Every state has different election issues, voting is done according to them. Lok Sabha elections are separate from Assembly elections. Be it Municipal Corporation or Lok Sabha elections. In every election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asks people to elect him. Kharge asked- Is he himself going to become CM? I believe that people vote for leaders on local issues. People will vote for those who worked for them.
Regarding seat sharing among the parties included in the opposition alliance INDIA for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, Kharge said that it will be discussed after the assembly elections to be held in five states. Congress is doing good work. We will win elections in all five states.
People angry with BJP, Gehlot-Bhupesh did good work
When the Congress President was asked about elections in five states, he said – We will win in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram. Kharge said- Election work is going well in five states. We are confident that we will win in all five states. There is an anti-incumbency wave against BJP.
Kharge said- People are fed up with inflation and unemployment in the Modi government. BJP did not live up to any of its promises. Ashok Gehlot and Bhupesh Baghel are doing good work in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. There is no issue there. People are angry with Shivraj Singh Chauhan in Madhya Pradesh. Therefore, we hope that we will bring our government in all the five states.
Kharge responded to allegations of corruption in Karnataka
On the allegation of calling Karnataka an ATM of Congress, the Congress President said that our government was formed in the state two-three months ago. BJP is already making allegations of corruption. These people are trying to defame us in the elections. They should think before speaking. Nothing is going to happen with this.
Election process will continue for 27 days in five states
The Election Commission had announced the dates for the assembly elections in the five states on October 9. The election process in these states will last for 27 days. Voting will be held first in Mizoram on 7 November. After this, voting will be held in Madhya Pradesh on 17th November. Voting will be held in Chhattisgarh in two phases on November 7 and November 17.
Then votes will be cast in Rajasthan on 25th November and Telangana on 30th November. Results will come simultaneously in all 5 states on 3rd December. BJP is currently in power in Madhya Pradesh, while Congress is in power in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. KCR’s party BRS is in power in Telangana, while Mizo National Front is in power in Mizoram.
Seat-sharing formula will be finalized after the elections of 5 states: Congress will contest on 270 seats in the 2024 elections, India’s allies will contest on 270 seats.
The fight between Congress and Samajwadi Party over assembly election seats in Madhya Pradesh has cleared many misunderstandings between the parties regarding INDIA Alliance. According to sources, there will be a meeting of the coordination committee of INDIA in the first week of December. In this, the decision will be taken in the next meeting of the top leaders of the alliance.
