Kolkata: The Congress on Saturday said the alliances of different opposition parties will have to be formed state by state with the objective to remove the Narendra Modi government which is “at war with its own people”
and the opposition will not crumble under the contradictions among the various parties. “The alliances if they have to be formed will have to be formed state by state. There are states where the Congress is strong. There are states where perhaps we don’t even need to enter into alliance. But there are states where the Congress is not so strong and so we will have to play a secondary role,” Congress Chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said at the India Today Conclave-East here. He said the country and its people are “under attack today by a person and a party, who are ruling the nation”.
Speaking on the possibility of a grand alliance of the opposition, he said there would always be competing claims by the different political parties in the states for political space. “There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. To say that this is such an inherent contradiction that the entire force of opposition will crumble under it, is perhaps wrong,” Surjewala said. (IANS)
