Senior BJP leader Dilip Ghosh on Monday ridiculed the proposed opposition meeting in Bihar next month and said leaders who oppose Prime Minister Narendra Modi will face complete defeat and defeat in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
Ghosh’s remarks came in the backdrop of a proposed opposition meeting in Bihar.
According to the indications received from Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) meeting, the meeting of anti-BJP parties may be held in Patna on June 12.
Party sources said West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee is likely to attend the meeting.
“We have seen such efforts in 2019, and the results are in front of us. TMC’s tally of seats reduced from 34 to 22. And the BJP’s tally of seats across the country increased from 282 to 303. The people of this country trust the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Whoever tries to fight against PM Modi will face complete defeat and defeat in 2024 Lok Sabha elections.”
Responding to Ghosh’s remarks, the TMC said the remarks reflect the “fear of defeat” that has set in the saffron camp.
“The BJP is horrified and dismayed by the attempts to forge opposition unity ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Just because it didn’t succeed in 2019 doesn’t mean it won’t succeed again,” TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said, adding such comments only “reflect the fear of defeat”.
For the last one year, the opposition parties have been trying to come together in the fight against the saffron camp.
