In the midst of discussions within the opposition coalition ‘INDIA‘ in Mumbai, a new strategy proposed by former Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satyapal Malik has taken center stage. Malik’s suggestion of the “One Seat-One Candidate” formula, aimed at challenging the ruling BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, has gained significant attention and consideration among opposition parties.
While ‘seat sharing’ discussions are set to take place in the upcoming INDIA coalition meeting, the focus has now shifted to how Malik’s unorthodox formula can be effectively implemented. Satyapal Malik, known for his outspoken nature, has suggested that instead of fielding multiple candidates against the BJP, the opposition should unite behind a single candidate in each constituency. This would mean that both the opposition coalition (INDIA) and the BJP would have just one candidate contesting from each seat.
Malik believes that if this strategy is successfully implemented, it could significantly weaken the BJP’s position in Delhi. While this idea may not seem feasible at the outset, it could become a compelling proposition for the opposition in the coming months.
