Mamata Banerjee and Akhilesh Yadav form a new front without Congress
Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, and Akhilesh Yadav, the former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, have reportedly agreed to form a new political front ahead of the upcoming 2024 general elections in India. This move is aimed at challenging the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its allies.
The new front is expected to be formed without the Congress party, which has been a key player in Indian politics for decades. The decision to exclude the Congress party was reportedly taken as both Banerjee and Yadav believe that the Congress has failed to put up a strong fight
against the BJP in recent years.
According to sources, Banerjee and Yadav have had several rounds of discussions about the formation of the new front, and they have reached a broad understanding of the issue. The new front is likely to be a
a coalition of regional parties, which will focus on issues that are of importance to the people of India, such as unemployment, poverty, and healthcare.
The decision to form a new front without the Congress party is likely to have a significant impact on Indian politics. The Congress party has been struggling to regain its position as a major player in Indian politics after suffering a series of electoral defeats in recent years.
Banerjee, who is the leader of the Trinamool Congress party, recently led her party to a resounding victory in the West Bengal state elections, defeating the BJP. Yadav, who is the leader of the Samajwadi Party, has
also been a vocal critic of the BJP.
The formation of the new front is likely to pose a significant challenge to the BJP, which has been dominating Indian politics in recent years. The BJP currently leads the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) coalition, which includes several regional parties.
