Why Geeta Koda quit Congress 

While quitting Congress, Geeta Koda accused the party of resorting to politics of appeasement. The Congress has driven the area into ruins. The Congress is simplest doing appeasement politics. On one hand, they claim they want to take every person along, but the truth remains they care for none and are only involved in their own family. 

There is no factor in staying at a party. This is the least involved about people. I have even determined to serve people in the future with the BJP. I might make a contribution in some thing capability the party calls for me to. Will contribute in gratifying the dream of Prime Minister Modi to make India Viksit Bharat,” Geeta said. 

Big setback to the Congress Party

“INDI alliance was now not in existence, and inside the future as well, it’s going to now not come into existence. Mamata Banerjee is saying that she will be able to not be giving any seats to the left and Congress in West Bengal. Arvind Kejriwal has also clarified his stance on Punjab and Haryana, pronouncing that he will now not be doing seat sharing.”

To make certain, AAP and Congress these days announced seat-sharing in Delhi, Gujarat, Goa, Haryana, and Chandigarh.

When asked about the BJP’s overall performance in Jharkhand in the upcoming Lok Sabha election, Marandi had said, “Last time the NDA alliance won 12 seats and overlooked two seats, this time we are going to win the ones  seats as well, and we’re preparing for the equal.”
