Yadav, Kumar want Sonia to join hands in ousting BJP from power in India

New Delhi, September 26 (KMS): In view of very threat to secular fabric of India at the hands of ruling Hindutva parties in India, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav called on Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi in New Delhi and urged her to take the lead in bringing all Opposition parties together to defeat the BJP in 2024 elections.

The meeting is significant as efforts are afoot to reconcile differences between the Congress and some regional parties.

This was Nitish Kumar’s first meeting with Gandhi since he severed ties with the BJP and joined hands with the RJD and the Congress to form a government in Bihar. Also, this was Lalu’s first political engagement since his illness.

After the meeting, Lalu told the media: “We have to bring all Opposition parties together to defeat the BJP. The Congress is in the process of electing a new president. Sonia Gandhi told us we will meet again after the election.”

Describing the situation in the country as “quite alarming,” he said the Centre had been trying to intimidate Opposition leaders. “We came together in Bihar and ousted the BJP from power. All of us will come together and oust the BJP in India,” he said.
