New Delhi: After a “historic meeting” with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge said it has been decided that all opposition parties will unite for the upcoming elections.
“Today we held a historic meeting here and discussed many issues. We have all decided to unite all the (opposition) parties and fight the upcoming elections unitedly,” the Congress chief said at a press conference in the national capital.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said, “This is a historic step towards uniting the opposition. We develop a vision for the opposition parties and move forward; we will all stand together for the country.”
“We are trying to unite as many political parties as possible and move together,” said Bihar CM Nitish Kumar.
This was after a meeting held at the Congress chief’s residence today. Bihar deputy Tejashwi Yadav and JD(U) leader Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh also accompanied Nitish Kumar. The meeting was held at the residence of Congress chief Kharge.
As per the current scenario, several political parties have endorsed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi when he was expelled from Parliament. In attempts to condemn the Narendra Modi-led central government, political parties that had previously distanced themselves from the Congress also protested against the exclusion.
However, such parties have also said that the fight is not to save the leader of a particular party, but to save Indian democracy.
