With the Congress turning away from alliances in states like Delhi, CPM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury has said that the main Opposition party should decide on its priority in the electoral battle and if it is to defeat the BJP, then it is time for everyone to remain united.

In an exclusive interview with DH, Yechury said there was no chance for a national-level Opposition alliance before the polls but state-level coalitions could be there like in the past.

"Our message to them (Congress) is decide on their priority. We decided that our priorities are three. One, defeat this BJP alliance for the sake of India and for the sake of ourselves.
