PATNA — Bihar Chief Ninister Nitish Kumar and key figure of the Opposition Alliance INDIA on Friday said that he suspects that the Narendra Modi-lead Central government will go in for early Lok Sabha polls. He called upon opposition parties to be alert.

Expressing confidence that the newly formed opposition group INDIA will defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) whenever elections are held, Nitish Kumar said: “The BJP wants to change the country’s history. Our aim is to strengthen the country and ensure welfare of all sections of society. We are moving expeditiously. Elections (to Lok Sabha) can be held early and we have to be alert,” said the JD(U) leader, according to media reports.

Returning to Patna on Friday night from Mumbai after attending the two-day INDIA bloc meeting, along with his deputy Tejashwi Yadav and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, Kumar said: “We have a two day meeting in Mumbai and it is highly successful and satisfactory. Everything is fixed now. After the meeting, every leader put their perspective in the press conference. Now, we have to speed up our work for the Lok Sabha election 2024.”

“The deliberations during the meeting was that people at the Centre will now have to go. We will be together and not allow history to be changed,” said the Bihar CM, targeting the BJP.

On the calling of a special session of the Parliament, Nitish Kumar said: “The Centre has brought a special session which indicates that they will go for the Lok Sabha election early.”

Asked about One Nation One Election move of the Modi government, Nitish Kumar asked why the Centre has not carried out a census in the country?

“We are doing a caste based census in Bihar. The last census of the country happened in 2011 and the next census was scheduled in 2021. Why has the center not done a census of the country,” he said.

On One Nation One Election, Tejashwi Yadav said all these things are rubbish.

“Today, they are talking about One Nation, One Election, then they will say that only Lok Sabha elections would take place and no Assembly election in states. Then they would say One Nation One Leader, One Nation One Language, One Nation One Religion… All these things are just rubbish. I want to say that they should have One Nation and One Income in the country. Modiji should do economic justice with the people of the country,” he said. — (With agency inputs)
