Opposition parties on the same side, Bengaluru gets festival look

Opposition parties on the same side, Bengaluru gets festival look

Opposition parties are getting ready for next year's parliamentary elections in full swing. The
Congress party leadership is showing seriousness to form a strong opposition alliance against the
BJP.
All the opposition parties, including the Congress, are coming together to face the parliamentary
elections. The first consultative meeting of these parties was held in Patna, the capital of Bihar.
Following this, the 2nd consultative meeting of the opposition parties will be held in Bengaluru
today and tomorrow. Among them are Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK Chief M. K. Stalin,
West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress Chief Mamata Banerjee, Bihar Chief
Minister Nitish Kumar, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind
Kejriwal, Punjab Chief Minister Hemant Soren and Leaders of Opposition Sonia Gandhi, Rahul
Gandhi, Sarath Pawar, Uddhav. Thackeray, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Akhilesh Yadav, Jayant
Chaudhary, Vaiko, Thirumavalavan and other leaders are expected to participate.

Political observers say that the Bengaluru opposition meeting will be very important for the
Congress party. This is the first meeting of opposition leaders after the Congress came to power
in Karnataka. Due to this, it is like a festival in Bengaluru city.
The meeting is also seen as very important as it is an attempt to publicize the demand for an all-
India Congress by bringing together all allied forces against the BJP. Congress is preparing a
strategy to defeat the BJP by uniting the opposition parties. All the leaders who were like
enemies have gathered in Bangalore today. They forget their differences and try to unite as their
only aim is to topple the Modi-led BJP government. They adopt give and take approach with
each other and joining hands.

Political commentators predict that if this consultative meeting succeeds like the Patna meeting,
a new turn is likely to take place in all Indian politics. Will the opposition's strategy to topple the
Union BJP government succeed?

At the same time the strength of BJP cannot be underestimated. The BJP leadership is in the
process of confirming its alliances state-wise. While the Opposition will hold a consultative
meeting in Bengaluru, the BJP will also hold a consultative meeting with its allies in Delhi today.
Anyway, there is no doubt that there will be a strong competition between the two sides in the
parliamentary elections as in the old Tamil cinema dialogue,`` Bale, Sariyana Potti ( right
competition)''!
