PM candidate

The elephant in the room is the PM face question which the opposition leaders have been handling well. West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said India will be the PM face of the alliance. Former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray threw a counter question and said, “We have many PM faces. The question is what choice the BJP has. We have seen what has been done by the person who was there for 10 years, everyone has had his experience and now the question is before the BJP.”

Seat sharing:

As of now, it has been decided that the seat sharing will be done based on the merits of the parties in respective states.

BSP question:

Though Mayawati has clarified that she is not with any alliance, Sharad Pawar made a massive claim ahead of the meeting that earlier Mayawati spoke with the BJP.

Sharad Pawar who is one of the hosts of the INDIA alliance meeting today said there is no doubt or confusion over the NCP. Those who have left will be taught a lesson by the people, senior Pawar said in a jibe at estranged nephew Ajit Pawar.

Kejriwal not in PM race

AAP national spokesperson Priyanka Kakkar on Wednesday said Kejriwal should be the PM face of the INDIA bloc. But later AAP clarified that Kejriwal is in the opposition grouping to save India. “This might be the personal opinion of the chief spokesperson. But Arvind Kejriwal is not at all a part of the PM race. AAP is a part of the INDIA alliance because India needs to be saved today,” Delhi minister Atishi said
