As per news report of The Indian Express, On whether she is ruling out an alliance or not, she said, “I do not rule out (alliance). We are absolutely not closed-minded. We are having an open mind.” “Our aim is to defeat the BJP,” she said, adding that other political parties should also be “open-minded”.
