Speaking on if the election results would be a reflection of 2024 Lok Sabha polls, Kharge said that he does not feel so as usually northeast parties go with the central government but also at the same time many leaders in Northeast are committed to national level politics.
Hence, he said they support the Congress party, other secular parties, democracy and the constitution of India. He also stated that those leaders feel that Congress, with alliance, should come forward to form the government.
