INDIA, also known as the 'Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance,' is an alliance of 26 opposition parties that includes the Congress. The parties have come together to oppose PM Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and prevent it from securing a third consecutive term at the Centre in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
The joint opposition met for the first time on June 23 in Patna, Bihar, and for the second time on July 17-18 in Bengaluru, Karnataka. The third meeting is scheduled for August 31-September 1 in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
