New Delhi : On the day of voting in the last phase of the Lok Sabha elections, i.e. on June 1, the top leaders of the opposition Indian National Development Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) group are going to meet in Delhi. In the meeting, there will be a discussion on assessing their performance during the 7-phase elections and making strategies for the future. This meeting is being called by Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge. The special thing is that West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has expressed her disagreement over attending this meeting of the India Alliance.

What did Mamata Banerjee say?

Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee said that she could not attend the meeting as voting was to be held on nine seats in West Bengal on the same day. Mamata Banerjee said that the All India Alliance is holding a meeting on June 1. Mamata said, I have told them that I cannot attend it because there are elections on 9 seats in West Bengal on the same day. Apart from this, there are elections in Punjab, Bihar and UP on June 1. On one hand there is a cyclone and on the other hand there is this election. She said that I have to do everything right now, cyclone relief is my priority.

Said to support the government

A few days ago, Mamata had said that her party will give “outside support” to the opposition alliance if it manages to form the government at the Centre. She said that we (TMC) will support India Block from outside to form the government at the Centre. We will give our support so that our mothers and sisters in (West) Bengal never face any problem… and those working in the 100 days job scheme also do not face any problem. On the comment of outside support, the TMC chief said that she is part of the 'India Block' at the national level.

What will be the agenda of the meeting?

The agenda of the meeting will include discussion on the opposition's strategy before the announcement of election results on June 4 and assessment of their performance during the seven-phase election. The opposition alliance of 28 parties has expressed confidence in its ability to prevent the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) from returning to power at the Centre and aim to form its own government. Previous meetings of the India Block were held in several cities including Patna, Bengaluru and Mumbai. Several proposals were put forward in the previous meetings. It was decided to fight the Lok Sabha elections collectively.
