The Indian National Democratic Inclusive Alliance (INDIA), an opposition alliance comprising representatives from 26 parties, including Congress, AAP, and TMC, is set to hold its next meeting in Mumbai. The alliance was formed during a meeting held in Bengaluru, where the parties adopted the name INDIA for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
The alliance has pledged to present an alternative political, social, and economic agenda and criticized Prime Minister Modi, stating that the fight is between the idea of India and him. In the upcoming meeting, the alliance aims to set up an 11-member coordination committee and discuss the names of its members. The group also plans to set up a common secretariat for campaign management in Delhi, with specific committees formed for separate issues.
The opposition alliance called “INDIA” aims to challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2024 parliamentary elections. Although these parties account for less than half of the BJP’s 301 lower house seats, they have sought to put differences aside and form a common platform to take on the BJP.
The alliance plans to focus on issues such as fighting rising prices and unemployment, safeguarding democracy and the Indian constitution, and building a fair economy that comprises both a strong public sector and a flourishing private sector. It remains to be seen how effective this opposition alliance will be in challenging the BJP in the upcoming elections.
Soon after opposition alliance “INDIA” meet in Bengaluru, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed NDA (National Democratic Alliance). Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the 25th anniversary of the NDA. In his speech, Modi emphasized the importance of positive politics and criticized negative coalitions like the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) formed by the opposition.
He credited the NDA with bringing stability and progress to India, putting the nation, security, progress, and empowerment of people first. Modi claimed that the NDA had transferred ₹30 lakh crore to poor citizens using Direct Benefit Transfer and saved around ₹3 lakh crore from corruption. Finally, he rejoiced those invitations extended to NDA leaders from around the world demonstrated an approval of India’s stability.
