Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday, 6 September, met his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal on the second day of his visit to the national capital with an aim to unify the Opposition in run up to the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and JD(U) leader Sanjay Jha were also present at the meeting.
Besides this, Kumar also met former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala.
After the meeting, Kumar said, "We have discussed that if the Left parties, regional parties in different states, and Congress come together then it will be a big deal."
Meanwhile, Yechury said, "We welcome that he (Nitish Kumar) came to this office once again. This is a positive sign for the politics in the country. Opposition parties have to save the country and the Constitution together," ANI reported.
Raja also talked about Kumar breaking away from the BJP, and said, "We welcome the way in which he (Nitish Kumar) broke with the BJP and joined the secular democratic forces, Mahagathbandhan in Bihar. Development in Bihar doesn't confine to Bihar alone, it has a huge impact on the political course of the country."
Kumar, who snapped ties with the BJP last month, said on Sunday that his only goal is to work for uniting the Opposition to unseat the saffron party from power at the Centre.
Kumar's visit to Delhi comes amidst the buzz that the JD(U) leader may emerge as the Opposition's prime ministerial face in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls, though he himself has refuted the rumours.
