Opposition parties need to unite to fight BJP: Mehbooba


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti has said that all opposition parties will have to unite to fight the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Mehbooba Mufti in a media interview in Srinagar said a grand opposition alliance needs to have Congress as its nucleus but the BJP is dividing the opposition camp to ensure that it does not happen.

She also questioned the silence of Samajwadi Party leader Akhikesh Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati.

The PDP president said with agencies after various politicians, “I have my own doubts if the opposition parties can come together”.

To a question on the state of minorities, Mehbooba said while the Muslims are the first target of the BJP-led government, it goes after everyone who opposes them.

“It is not about Muslims anymore. If you look at it, the people who are put in jail this time are not Muslims. Manish Sisodia is not Muslim, you have Sharad Pawar’s people put behind bars, Sanjay Raut was in jail. Now they are going after Rahul Gandhi. So, it is not about Muslims only, but Muslims of course are the first target. It is going to be BJP versus all. Whosoever opposes them, tries to have a dissenting note, they are going to go after them,” she said.
