On September 1, the opposition group INDIA (Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance) revealed the creation of a 14-person coordinating committee.
The position of the coordination committee was revealed at a summit of leaders organised in Mumbai.

The India group also resolved to run in the Lok Sabha elections jointly “to the extent possible” during its conference.
The resolution’s slogan, “Judega Bharat, Jeetega India” (India will unite, India will win), points out the readiness for involvement in seat-sharing arrangements and the cooperative attitude.

Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) leaders have decided to run jointly in next year’s Lok Sabha elections. The conclusion was reached following a two-day joint meeting in Mumbai, where representatives of 28 parties discussed a plan to unseat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led administration in the 2024 elections.
Congress leader Jairam Ramesh posted the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) parties’ statement announcing their involvement in the next Lok Sabha elections on microblogging platform X, formerly known as Twitter. The Indian parties have formally decided to work together and participate as fully as possible in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Making this decision represents a concerted effort on the part of the constituent parties to put up a strong front in the election campaign.
The Indian parties have started the seat-sharing process throughout several states as part of their collaborative approach. Cooperation will be emphasised throughout this process in an effort to quickly come to mutually beneficial agreements.
The alliance has also agreed to plan public gatherings in various parts of the nation to discuss problems that are significant to and of concern to the general population. These rallies are anticipated to act as forums for the candidates to interact with the voters and outline their plans for India’s future.
The Indian parties have promised to cooperate in their own interaction and publicity plans in order to increase the impact of their campaign. In order to appeal to a variety of demographics, they will use the slogan “Judega Bharat, Jeetega India” (India will unite, India will win) in many languages.
The start of the seat-sharing procedure was one of the main results of the summit in Mumbai. The Indian parties agreed to start this procedure right away with the intention of finishing it as soon as possible. The seat-sharing agreements will be characterised by an atmosphere of cooperation and compromise among the participating parties.
The end of September will be the start of a combined campaign that India has additionally scheduled. The campaign, with the fitting slogan “Judega Bharat, Jeetega India,” highlights the alliance’s dedication to tackle issues of concern for the public and relevance with a unified front.
At the unofficial meeting in Mumbai, a number of well-known leaders expressed their thoughts and recommendations. Mamata Banerjee as well as Nitish Kumar, the chief ministers of the coalition, emphasised the necessity of effective planning while exhorting alliance leaders to act quickly. The chief minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, suggested that seat-sharing negotiations start at the state level.
It’s important to note, though, that certain alliance leaders expressed reservations about holding an early general election before the one now scheduled for April to May 2024.
