Third Front Not Possible Without Congress: Sharad Pawar 

As the opposition parties are trying to create a united front against the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Patry) without Congress, NCP (Nationalist Congress Party) chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday said that the formation of the third front without Congress is not possible.

Earlier, several opposition leaders, including Est Bengal CM Mamata Benerjee, and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao have called for opposition unity for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

The Telangana Chief Minister has been traveling across the country to meet opposition leaders and it was being seen as an effort to make a united alliance against the Bharatiya Janta Party.

Sharad Pawar’s statement comes following the decision of the CPI (Communist Party of India – Marxist) not to form a national alliance with the Congress party.

As Congress continues to perform poorly in the elections, several regional parties are performing quite well. This situation led to the emergence of new regional leaders with national aspirations. Such leaders include AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) Arvind Kejriwal, TRS (Telangana Rashtriya Samiti) K Chandrashekar Rao, and TMC (Trinamool Congress) Mamata Banerjee. With the failure of Congress in the recently held five state assembly elections, the possibility of a third front has started to gain momentum.
