Opposition I.N.D.I.A bloc a “purely opportunistic” alliance that’s certain to disintegrate, mentioned senior BJP chief Ravi Shankar Prasad on Friday.

Addressing a press convention in Bhopal, capital of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, Prasad mentioned: “Nitish Kumar has given a big statement admitting that there is a problem in the I.N.D.I alliance nowadays. Nitish has said (Congress leader) Rahul (Gandhi) does not have time (for I.N.D.I.A bloc) due to elections.”

The assertion of the BJP chief got here a day after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar blamed Congress, saying all of the members of the I.N.D.I alliance have been working collectively to strengthen the nation’s grand outdated celebration, however it’s “not interested in it right now.”

Kumar additional mentioned Congress, “Not a lot of work (of I.N.D.I.A bloc) is being done right now because of Assembly polls in five states, and Congress is more interested in that.”

The BJP chief claimed that Madhya Pradesh Congress president and former chief minister of the state Kamal Nath was on a sticky wicket in his house turf Chhindwara from the place he can be contesting for the November 17 Meeting polls.

“Here (in Madhya Pradesh), the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Janata Dal (U), the Samajwadi Party (all constituents of the opposition bloc) have jumped into the poll fray,” Prasad mentioned.

The senior BJP politician accused leaders of the Congress, the most important celebration within the I.N.D.I.A grouping, of enjoying drama within the title of opposition unity.

“I was reading an interview of Kamal Nath in which he said I.N.D.I.A partners have virtually no stake in Madhya Pradesh, where there is a direct fight between the BJP and the Congress. Kamal Nathji and Rahul Gandhiji, if the fight is direct then why you all were playing out a drama for the last six months for the INDIA alliance,” he quipped.

Prasad additional mentioned the alliance of greater than two dozen anti-BJP events is getting scattered earlier than the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.

“Patna meeting, Bengaluru meeting, Mumbai meeting , the general elections have not been announced and you are getting scattered,” the BJP chief mentioned, taking a swipe on the Indian Nationwide Developmental Inclusive Alliance (I.N.D.I.A).

“This is a purely opportunistic alliance so it was bound to disintegrate. Yesterday, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav announced that if there is an alliance for 80 (Lok Sabha) seats (in Uttar Pradesh), his party will contest elections on 65 of them. He has said adjustments should be made for rest of the (15) seats,” Prasad mentioned.

The BJP chief additional claimed Congress chief Nath, a former CM of Madhya Pradesh, is going through powerful time within the Chhindwara meeting seat.

“I went to Chhindwara yesterday (Thursday) and I want to tell you all that Kamal Nathji is in deep trouble in Chhindwara. Don’t be surprised if he loses elections. This was my observation during the visit,” Prasad mentioned.
