After Delhi, INDIA bloc eyes more joint rallies for Lok Sabha election campaign | India News

NEW DELHI: The INDIA bloc of opposition parties that got back together with a show of strength rally here at the Ramlila grounds on Sunday, could hold similar joint rallies during the long, extended election campaign for the Lok Sabha polls, according to some of the alliance partners.
With two constituent parties — Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and Aam Aadmi Party — going into the campaign with their top leaderships respectively unable to campaign for being behind bars, “it is possible that the other alliance partners hold joint rallies as a show strength to take the message of solidarity against the ruling BJP to the voters,” according to one of the alliance party leaders.
Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, who was away from the Ramlila rally, as she was kicking off her party’s campaign in West Bengal from party MP (expelled from Lok Sabha) Mahua Moitra’s Krishnanagar constituency on Sunday, delegated two TMC MPs to represent the party here. The TMC MPs vociferously asserted that TMC “was, is and will be” part of the INDIA alliance.
That categorical emphasis from TMC was a clear indication of how Banerjee is back in the opposition coalition after a round distancing and open spat over seat-sharing issues with the Congress.
With central agencies arresting sitting chief ministers from parties opposed to BJP, the opposition coalition has regrouped to take on the BJP, in a joint venture.
