Nitish Kumar, who went to Delhi for the first time on a mission to unite anti-BJP parties as the CM of the Grand Alliance government, met a total of 11 opposition leaders before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections to be held after nearly a year and a half. Nitish met 11 leaders, but to know what he got in his aim, what was achieved, everyone’s eyes were on the statement of Nitish and other leaders.
After the first political meeting with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and last political meeting with NCP leader Sharad Pawar, Nitish said that everyone’s response was very positive. He said that it will be good for the country if everyone fights the elections together. On his own PM claim, Nitish said that he does not have to be the leader, he has to bring everyone together. Whoever has to be, will be selected by talking amongst themselves. He said that BJP wants to capture the entire country, so it is necessary to be united.
There are no obstacles in Nitish’s path, there are 9 big stones to form an alliance, 6 rocks are different in PM’s race
When Nitish came out to meet the hospitalized Mulayam Singh Yadav, in the presence of SP President Akhilesh Yadav, he said that we all think that everyone has to move forward together. Nitish told Akhilesh that he will lead UP in the future. AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal said after the meeting that along with all the issues, there was discussion on BJP’s Operation Lotus and toppling the government by breaking or buying MLAs. CPM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said that if the regional parties, Left and Congress come together, there can be change in the country.
“Whoever has to be PM, will be selected after talking amongst themselves”
The point worth noting in all Nitish’s statement is – “Whoever has to become the PM, will be elected after talking amongst themselves.” Actually everyone is interested in how many opposition leaders who are aspiring for the post of PM can be brought into a coalition. Whether it is about Rahul Gandhi or Akhilesh Yadav, whether it is Arvind Kejriwal or Mamata Banerjee, the biggest question and biggest doubt about the opposition alliance is how many leaders who have ambitions to become Prime Minister will come together.
Nitish did not get an answer to this question in this three-day tour of Delhi, that is for sure. But Nitish’s saying that everyone’s response has been very good, it definitely tells that all the leaders of the opposition also want that everyone should be together in the fight with BJP, it is for the good of everyone. In the Congress rally on Sunday, Rahul Gandhi had also told the need for solidarity against the BJP. Everyone wants, everyone talks too, but how to unite against BJP, the challenge is to find a way out. Nitish has gone ahead and taken up this challenge which is also good for his own political stature.
