One of the interlocutors of the opposition, Sharad Pawar, had predicted off the formula that can help to reach the seat of Prime Minister. The parliamentary election will occur in the year 2019 and the party to get maximum votes will claim the post. However, Sharad even stated, that Rahul Gandhi has cleared off that he is not rushing for the post of the PM and hence he was happy with it since the chances are so low.
The 78-year-old leader has actually addressed this in the meeting at Mumbai, "Let elections take place, remove these people (BJP) from power. We will sit together. Whichever party has got more seats can claim the prime minister's post," Mr Pawar said. "I am happy that the Congress leader (Rahul Gandhi) has also said he is not in the race for the prime minister's post,"
Gandhi actually made a statement that goes like, “I don't have these visions. I view myself as fighting an ideological battle and this change has come to me after 2014. I realised that there's a risk to Indian state, to the Indian way of doing things and I'm defending that,"
It is not even a year left now for the election and the opposition front has already said that the BJP is still on the shaky ground and it is likely for their win as well.
Mamata Banerjee known as Regional powerhouse has been vocal about the biggest role. Banerjee has also made it clear that she was preparing for the national role. Even Mayawati allied have also hinted that her ambition is to be at the top of the job. In the meantime, Congress has kept a low profile as a signal that they are committed to stitch off the front. However, the chance is higher than the Congress and the AAP may not make up for the general election.
He indicated that he was ready off to pick up the slack of saying, "try to go to each state and make regional parties which are not with the BJP to join us (the opposition alliance)".
Pawar said, “Congress is strong in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. In Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati-Akhilesh is there. The situation is different in each state. Hence, we will have to get along with parties which are strong in each state,"
