After the meeting, Yechury told the media, “Consultations and meetings will keep happening. And all the secular forces have to work together. Discussions are happening on the same."
When asked about the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) bloc parties seat sharing formula, he said, "When we are sharing the stage, shaking hands and our hearts are also connecting, why will seat sharing not happen? And it will happen according to the conditions in every state.”
When asked about the central agencies' actions, he said, “This election is not only against the BJP but also against the ED and other agencies and the misuse of the agencies is visible to everyone and it is visible today in Uttar Pradesh.”
