“Facade”. This six-letter word was used in his reply to a question by poll strategist Prashant Kishor on the ongoing efforts to bring about unity among opposition parties for the 2024 Lok Sabha polls against BJP.

“If you want to challenge the BJP, you have to understand its strengths – Hindutva, nationalism and welfarism. It is a three-level pillar. If you can’t breach at least two of these levels, then you can’t challenge the BJP,” he said in an interview with NDTV.

Kishor put focus on how the Opposition can counter the BJP by saying this. “There has to be a coalition of ideologies to fight the Hindutva ideology. Gandhiwadi, Ambedkarites, socialists, communists…Ideology is very important but you can’t have blind faith on the basis of ideology.” 

He further added that till the time an “ideological alignment” does not happen, BJP cannot be defeated.
