The movement for the Lok Sabha elections has intensified. Less than a year is left for the Lok Sabha elections. In such a situation, the BJP is running a 'Maha Sampark Abhiyan'. At the same time, many opposition leaders have also started trying to unite other parties. Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin on Wednesday said his DMK will take all steps to coordinate with the opposition ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
