Efforts are reportedly on among regional political parties to form an alliance that can win as many as 135 to 140 seats in the 2024 General Elections. The Lok Sabha magic figure is 272.
As per political analyst Rasheed Kidwai, parties such as TMC, NCP, SP and DMK are looking at a scenario where they can secure half of the needed simple majority figure. They are hoping that the Congress party will win the other half on its own.
As per a blog written by Kidwai, political strategist Prashant Kishore is playing a key role in holding parleys with the likes of Sharad Pawar and Uddhav Thackeray. He is also hoping that the Congress doesn’t perform poorly in the 2022 Assembly elections to Punjab and Uttar Pradesh in the main.
While 2024 is still three years away, the Opposition parties are already working behind the curtains to firm up their strategy.
