Mamata Banerjee and Arvind Kejriwal bowled a googly in the INDIA bloc meeting held on December 19, proposing Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge's name as the Opposition coalition's Prime Ministerial face. Reports say 12 of the 26 parties supported the move while the rest were less enthusiastic. Kharge himself said the bloc should focus on winning the 2024 elections first; the PM decision can wait until afterwards.
