‘ Opp. grand alliance a non- starter’
I was feeling suffocated in Cong due to neglect of SC and ST leaders. — Ram Dayal Uike, BJP leader
Hyderabad: Terming the proposed grand alliance of opposition parties against BJP a “non- starter”, BJP general secretary V. Ram Madhav Saturday said the party is gearing up for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls with a target of winning 315 seats. The opposition parties are proposing ‘ Mahagathbandhan’ ( grand alliance) as there was no leader who can match the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said. “No ‘ jhenda’ ( flag) and no agenda ( for ‘ Mahagathbandhan’). It’s a non- starter. With such a sinking ‘ gathbandhan’, nobody can stop the victory march of BJP,” he said.
