The spokesperson stated that there was no information about the meeting earlier, when asked if the decision had been taken following the announcement of assembly poll results in four states.
”The Samajwadi party national president has no plans to attend the meeting of the INDIA bloc tomorrow. Prof. Ram Gopal Yadav or any other leader authorised by the national president will go for the meeting,” Chaudhary told PTI.
The leaders of the opposition INDIA bloc are scheduled to meet in Delhi on December 6 to formulate a strategy for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2024.
The SP chief on Monday expressed his disappointment after the results of the recent assembly elections in four states were announced, and expressed hope that the results would be different in the upcoming elections for the Lok Sabha in 2024.
He had, however, stressed that opposition parties will have to make a lot of preparations to fight against a ”big party” like the BJP. ”The fight is big. To fight a big party like the BJP, we will have to make a lot of preparations. We have to be under strict discipline and have to fight the strategy with which they (BJP) are getting the majority. I hope the results will be different in the Lok Sabha polls,” Yadav had told reporters in Varanasi. In a significant boost for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and setting the tone for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP swept Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh on Sunday.
As a consolation after losing Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh to the saffron wave, the Congress defeated the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) in Telangana.
