New Delhi: Asserting that the Opposition has a slim chance of winning the 2024 General elections until it has a face, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Wednesday said Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar is the right candidate against PM Modi in the Lok Sabha poll.

"Without a strong face of the Opposition, it will be difficult to defeat Modi in 2024. The Opposition currently has no face to battle against PM Modi. All opposition parties should try and find a face to fight the election," Sanjay Raut said.

The Sena MP added that Sharad Pawar could be the face of the Opposition in 2024 since he is a senior leader.

This is not the first time that Sanjay Raut has nominated Sharad Pawar as the face of a united Opposition.

"A leader like Sharad Pawar should be made the chief of the UPA if you want to strengthen the opposition in the country. His leadership is acceptable to all," Sanjay Raut said.

Notably, the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra, which was formed after the 2019 Assembly poll, is led by the Shiv Sena, in which the NCP and the Congress are alliance partners.
