In a bid to unite the opposition for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday met several opposition leaders, including Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, in Delhi to discuss the current political situation in the country and ways to ensure opposition unity. On Tuesday, Nitish Kumar can meet Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Nitish can meet many opposition leaders including Kejriwal-Pawar today
Apart from Arvind Kejriwal, Nitish Kumar is likely to meet several opposition leaders including Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar, CPIM’s Sitaram Yechury, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and INLD supremo Om Prakash Chautala on Tuesday. After recently quitting the BJP, Nitish Kumar is in Delhi to try to bring all the opposition parties together to take on the BJP in the next parliamentary elections.
Dismissing reports that he is projecting himself as the prime ministerial candidate in 2024, Nitish Kumar called for opposition unity. Nitish Kumar told reporters that if the opposition is united then a good atmosphere will be created. I have no desire and no aspiration to become the Prime Minister.
Nitish Kumar’s meeting with opposition leaders comes days after Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao visited Bihar and discussed the country’s political scenario.
