On Tuesday, CM Nitish Kumar of Bihar visited and met with RJD Leader Lalu Prasad. It is believed that they discussed the present political state of affairs, with the aim of uniting the opposition and preparing for the 2024 Parliamentary elections.
Two prominent figures of Bihar politics, Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar held a meeting on Monday. On the same day, Tejaswani Yadav, Lalu Prasad’s son, and Nitish Kumar’s deputy were questioned by the Enforcement Directorate in Delhi regarding a money laundering case connected to the alleged land-for-jobs scam case.
Upon arriving at the nation’s capital, Kumar made his way to the residence of Misa Bharti, where Lalu Prasad was residing. Once there, Kumar greeted him and asked him about his well-being.
Kumar revealed that he had spoken with Lalu Prasad over the phone about his health following his kidney transplant. However, he felt it was necessary to meet him in person, so he traveled to visit him.
During his upcoming trip to Delhi, Kumar is anticipated to have meetings with various political opponents, such as Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge. Kumar has been vocal in the past about his opinion that all opposition parties, including the Congress, should unite in order to defeat the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Kumar predicted in February that if all the opposition parties, including the Congress, banded together for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP would be limited to less than 100 seats.
At a Mahagathbandhan rally in Purnea, Bihar, JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar urged the Congress Party to come to a swift decision regarding the alliance. He highlighted the importance of the partnership and its potential to bring about a positive change in the state.
Last year September, Kumar visited Delhi to meet political leaders, including Sharad Pawar of the Nationalist Congress Party, Arvind Kejriwal of the Aam Aadmi Party, D Raja of the Communist Party of India, Sitaram Yechury of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), and Akhilesh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party. These parties are all part of the ruling coalition in Bihar.
