All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday indicated that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party-led government will have a clear edge over the Opposition if only a particular face is pitted against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2024.

In an interview with the editor of news agency, Owaisi said that a single opposition party or face will not be enough to defeat the BJP and that the Opposition needs to come together and galvanise in each Lok Sabha constituency to win the 2024 elections.

“The Opposition should look to put up a tough fight for all the 540 parliamentary constituencies. If a single opposition face fights against BJP, the latter will benefit,” he said and added, “If it's Modi versus (Arvind) Kejriwal or Rahul Gandhi, the

PM would be at an advantage.”

When asked about whether Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee can be pitted against PM Modi, Owaisi said, “Mamata Banerjee (recently) held a meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah. So one is not certain if she should be the Opposition face against PM Modi.”

CM Banerjee passes a resolution in the Parliament against BJP, but then praises PM Modi,” the AIMIM chief further criticised.

A lot of speculation has been brewing as political parties begin campaigning for the crucial election due next year. Banerjee had earlier called on the chief ministers of all Opposition-ruled states to come together and put up a united fight against the BJP in 2024.
