The next meeting of opposition parties will be held in Bengaluru on July 13 and 14, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar announced today. The meeting was originally scheduled to be held in Shimla, but was moved due to heavy rainfall in the hill state.
Pawar said that the meeting will focus on strategizing a united front against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The parties will also discuss how to oppose the current communal tensions and misuse of central forces in several states.
The Bengaluru meeting is seen as an important opportunity for the opposition parties to build on the momentum of the Patna meeting and to finalize their plans for the 2024 elections.
Here are some additional details:
The meeting will be held at the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) stadium in Bengaluru.
The parties are expected to discuss a range of issues, including the economy, the farmers’ protests, and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
The meeting is likely to be attended by a large number of opposition leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Mamata Banerjee, Akhilesh Yadav, and Sharad Pawar.
The Bengaluru meeting is a significant step forward for the opposition parties in their efforts to unite against the BJP. The success of the meeting will depend on the ability of the parties to put aside their differences and to work together towards a common goal.
