Janata Dal United spokesperson Neeraj Kumar has said that both Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party and Congress have no option but to come together. Neeraj Kumar said that there is no other way than joining hands with the Congress or other opposition parties to defeat the BJP in the 2024 elections. Arvind Kejriwal went to Kolkata on Tuesday to meet West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and on Wednesday he will meet Uddhav Thackeray in Mumbai.
However, his visit has nothing to do with opposition unity. Kejriwal is out to garner the support of the opposition parties against the central government’s ordinance to overturn the transfer-posting authority granted to the Delhi government by the Supreme Court so as to prevent its passage in the Rajya Sabha when the bill is introduced in the Parliament session.
JDU’s Supreme Leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had supported Kejriwal on this issue only after meeting Arvind Kejriwal in Delhi. JDU President Lalan Singh on Tuesday also strongly criticized the central government for neutralizing the decision of the Supreme Court by bringing an ordinance. Lalan Singh is also engaged in opposition unity but Kejriwal does not seem to be completely on board with it. Kejriwal is currently focusing on getting help from opposition parties in the tussle between the central government and the Delhi government.
JDU spokesperson Neeraj Kumar has said that the meeting of opposition unity will be held soon in Patna. On the question of seat sharing among the parties of the Grand Alliance, Neeraj Kumar said that seat sharing does not matter to us. He criticized the ordinance for overturning the Supreme Court’s decision.
