Coalition should be done at the state level.
A leader said that many leaders including Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Pramod Tiwari and Prithviraj Chavan etc. argued that there is not much time to adopt the ‘Ekla Chalo’ model. Therefore, the possibility of an alliance should be explored. However, not all leaders are unanimous on the alliance.
