In this sequence, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee met Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik after SP chief Akhilesh Yadav. This campaign also had the support of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

the challenge of staying united in the future
Since 2014, the unity of the opposition has been falling apart on the spot due to the ambitions of the leaders of different parties. Although the opposition parties are speaking in one voice in the matter of action against Rahul, but it will not be easy to maintain this unity in future. At this time, due to not supporting Rahul, many opposition parties are afraid of political losses. However, the opposition has not been able to find the answer to the Yaksha question like the face of the opposition, the joint strategy and the common issue against the Modi government.
