PDA: Akhilesh defines formula to beat BJP in 2024 Lok Sabha polls

LUCKNOW: SP chief Akhilesh Yadav Saturday said the BJP-led NDA will be defeated in the next year’s general elections by “PDA”, which he defined as a “Pichde (backward classes), Dalit and Alpasankhyak (minorities)”.
At NDTV Conclave in Lucknow, the ex-UP chief minister said, “BJP will be defeated in all 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh if bigger national parties back us.”
He asserted that he has always maintained that seat distribution should be decided considering which alliance partner is the strongest in a particular state.
When asked about his view on efforts being made to stitch a united opposition, he said his slogan is, “Assi harao, BJP hatao (defeat 80, remove BJP).”
“Wherever SP has been in alliance, you wouldn’t hear of us fighting over seats,” he said.
