Shimla: Janata Dal (United) leader of K. C. Tyagi on Sunday appealed to the people of Himachal Pradesh to elect a Congress government in Himachal Pradesh to lay the foundation for opposition unity ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Tyagi said a strong alternative to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is needed and only the Congress can defeat the BJP. “There is a need for a strong alternative to the BJP, for which Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has started a campaign,” he told a press conference at the Congress office here. The Himachal Pradesh assembly election is important as it will lay the foundation for the opposition’s campaign for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
He said, “If Congress wins from here, it will prove to be a milestone for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.” Will make way for the opposition.” In Bihar, the JD(U) recently broke ties with the BJP and formed a grand alliance government with the Congress and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).

JD(U) general secretary Tyagi said he did not agree with the parties which advocate a non-BJP, non-Congress option at the national level. He said that there can be no talk of opposition unity without Congress and there can be no alternative to opposition without taking the oldest party along. “If we defeat the BJP in Himachal Pradesh, it will not only fulfill the opposition unity but also our resolve for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections,” the JD(U) leader said.
