New Delhi: The former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today stated that it is not easy for the opposition to forge an alliance against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2019 elections and she also hope that the unity works out but it has to be worked out carefully.

The Congress leader also said in an interview that the country’s oldest political party cannot do without the Gandhis and that Vice President Rahul Gandhi “is coming up well”.

Speaking on a variety of subjects, Dikshit, who ruled Delhi for 15 long years until 2013, also said she would never, ever join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Asked about talks among opposition parties to take on the BJP, Dikshit said there was a lot of talk on an “anti-communal agenda”.

“I do hope it (opposition unity) works out. But it has to be worked out very carefully. People have to learn to accept each other,” Dikshit said and added: “They at the moment are individualistic.

“In the interest of the country, this will be good. Nothing has come out substantially so far,” she added.
