Mumbai. National Conference (NC) President Farooq Abdullah said on Wednesday that the most important issue on the agenda of the ‘India’ meeting of the opposition parties in Mumbai will be how to win the 2024 elections and on which issues the elections will be fought.
The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, who is in Mumbai to attend the meeting of the opposition alliance, told reporters that a final blueprint has to be drawn up to take on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He said that by September 1, it should be clear who will be the convenor of ‘India’ or whether a convenor is needed in the first place.
