New Delhi: Political strategist Prashant Kishore has also jumped into the 'choice' battle between the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and the Congress. Prashant Kishore has directly hit out at the Congress leadership saying that the Congress has lost 90 per cent of its elections in the last 10 years. In such a situation, it cannot be the divine right of Congress to lead the opposition.
Prashant Kishore tweeted that the idea and expansion that the Congress represents for a strong opposition is important. But it is not the divine right of Congress to lead the opposition when the party loses 90 per cent of its elections in the last 10 years. Let the opposition leadership determine democratically. In fact, Mamata Banerjee is gearing up for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. She is appealing to leaders of political parties in different states to become an alternative to the BJP. Mamata had said in Mumbai on Wednesday that a national option can be made against the BJP only if the parties are ready to fight. The option should be strong. This work cannot be done alone.
Mamata Banerjee, without naming the Congress, said that no one can fight, so what should we do? We want all parties to fight. Mamata also said that the UNITED PROGRESSIVE ALLIANCE (UPA) is no longer there and therefore, the question does not arise as to who will be the LEADER of the UPA. Sonia Gandhi is the leader of the UPA right now.
