Mamata still has time to change her mind, says opposition V-P candidate Margaret Alva


NEW DELHI: There may be differences in the non-BJP camp but the opposition‘s intention is to find a common platform ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, said the opposition’s joint vice presidential candidate Margaret Alva on Saturday.
Alva, 80, faces an uphill task in the August 6 vice presidential poll in which she is up against ruling NDA’s Jagdeep Dhankhar.

Describing the prevailing differences among opposition parties as a “family quarrel”, Alva said that all the parties were clear on the fact that the “Constitution has to be defended and democratic institutions protected”. “We don’t want one-party rule,” she added.
The former Rajasthan governor said the “tragedy” of today’s democratic system is that the mandate of people does not prevail and muscle-power, money power, and threats change the composition of the elected framework.

Responding to frequent disruptions in Parliament, the multi-term parliamentarian said it is happening because the Chair is “unable” to work out compromises whereby the opposition’s point of view is considered.
Alva also said she is “aghast” at the Trinamool Congress’ decision to abstain from the vice presidential poll as the party’s chief, Mamata Banerjee, has been leading the movement to unite the Opposition.
“Mamata has been my friend for years, there is enough time for her to change her mind,” said Alva, while attacking Dhankhar for functioning as a representative of a party while holding the post of West Bengal Governor.
