New Delhi. 28 opposition parties formed an alliance for the Lok Sabha elections. The intention of this alliance of opposition parties is to uproot the NDA led by PM Narendra Modi from central power. Three meetings of the alliance of opposition parties have been held in Patna, Bengaluru and Mumbai, but instead of making a strategy against Modi, the opposition alliance seems to be struggling with mutual conflict. On one hand, no decision has been taken yet on seat distribution. At the same time, clarification has to be given on the poisonous statements of the leaders of the alliance of opposition parties regarding Sanatan and Hindu religious scriptures. On Friday also, the alliance of opposition parties had to clarify the loud statements of their fellow Hindu and anti-Sanatan leaders.
In the program of news channel Aaj Tak in Bhopal, Congress leader Kamal Nath was questioned about DMK leader Udhayanidhi Stalin’s statement of erasing Sanatan. Kamal Nath had to say from the stage that someone should say something, but everyone knows that our country belongs to Sanatan Dharma. Kamal Nath also said that Sanatan Dharma says to take everyone along. Listen to the statement of senior Congress leader Kamal Nath on Sanatan Dharma.

On one hand, Kamal Nath was speaking on the controversy raised by his party’s ally DMK on Sanatan, while on the other hand, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, who is part of the alliance of opposition parties in Bihar and Deputy CM in the Nitish Kumar government, was speaking to his party. Leader and Education Minister Chandrashekhar had to give advice. Actually, Chandrashekhar’s video had gone viral, in which he was describing Ramcharitmanas as a dangerous place containing potassium cyanide. Even before this, Chandrashekhar had given a controversial statement on Ramcharitmanas. Now see what advice Tejashwi gave to the Education Minister.
#WATCH We believe in the Constitution and all religions are respected in the Constitution, so we always respect the sentiments of the people.

However, the sudden intensification of all these controversies seems to be creating difficulties for the alliance of opposition parties. BJP has made anti-Hindu and anti-Sanatan statements an issue. Barring a few states in the south, most of the seats in the Lok Sabha are from North India. In such a situation, if BJP succeeds in making the statements of this anti-Hindu and anti-Sanatan opposition alliance an issue, then it may once again give a big blow to the opposition despite being united in the Lok Sabha elections.
