Charting the Path Ahead: 2024 Opposition Meet's Exciting Roadmap Post AAP-Congress Reconciliation

The opposition parties are actively working towards resolving their differences and presenting a unified front in preparation for the upcoming general elections in the following year. With this objective in mind, leaders from 24 opposition parties are anticipated to attend a crucial meeting convened by the Congress. The purpose of this gathering is to strategize for the forthcoming Monsoon Session of Parliament as well as the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. To shed more light on this significant development, here are ten key facts:

1. Former Congress President, Sonia Gandhi, arrived in Bengaluru, where she received a warm welcome from party president Mallikarjun Kharge, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, and his deputy DK Shivakumar.

2. The primary focus of the opposition leaders during this meeting will be to address their differences and showcase a united front for the upcoming general elections.

3. Sources indicate that there is a proposal to establish a subcommittee responsible for drafting a common minimum program and communication guidelines for the opposition alliance in the 2024 elections. Additionally, the leaders plan to suggest a name for the alliance.

4. After much deliberation, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) recently announced their decision to participate in the meeting. This announcement came shortly after the Congress expressed support for AAP's campaign against a contentious central order that aimed to regain control of Delhi's bureaucracy.

5. Prominent leaders such as Sonia Gandhi, Mamata Banerjee, Sharad Pawar, Arvind Kejriwal, MK Stalin, Nitish Kumar, and Hemant Soren are expected to attend this crucial meeting.

6. However, notable leaders such as K Chandrasekhar Rao, Jagan Mohan Reddy, Chandrababu Naidu, and Naveen Patnaik will not be present.

7. The opposition meeting takes place against the backdrop of two significant events: the split in the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) led by Sharad Pawar and the West Bengal panchayat polls, which were marred by widespread violence resulting in several fatalities. State units of the Congress and Left parties accused the Trinamool Congress government of engaging in oppressive actions.

8. The previous meeting for opposition unity, hosted by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in Patna on June 23, saw the participation of fifteen parties.

9. Coinciding with the opposition meet, the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is also organizing a mega meet in New Delhi. The purpose of this gathering is to showcase their numbers and strength ahead of the 2024 general elections. It is expected that nearly 30 parties will reaffirm their support for the alliance before the commencement of the Monsoon Session on July 20.

In summary, the opposition parties are taking proactive steps to bridge their differences and present a united front for the upcoming general elections. This meeting holds significant importance as leaders from various parties come together to strategize for the Monsoon Session of Parliament and chart a course for the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
