Nitish Kumar to Make Tours Across the Country for Opposition Unity

Date:

On his Delhi visit, Nitish Kumar said: "We have had deep discussions with leaders of Congress, AAP and left parties. All of them agreed on opposition unity. I have decided to visit across the country to unite the maximum number of people of the opposition parties.

PATNA — After his visit to Delhi to meet prominent opposition leaders, Bihar Chief Nitish Kumar on Friday said that he had decided to go across the country to unite opposition parties.

Addressing a gathering at the JD-U office here on the occasion of B.R. Ambedkar’s birth anniversary, he made a dig at the Narendra Modi government, saying that people sitting at the Center do not believe in work, but only believe in publicity.

“We believe in work and doing many things for the welfare of common people. On the other hand, people sitting in the Centre have nothing to do with the work. They just want to do advertisements. These people have no contribution in the freedom struggle and hence they want to change the history of the country,” he said.

As Nitish Kumar reached the JD-U office, he was given a grand welcome with rose petals showered on him and the chant of slogan ‘Desh ka PM kaisa ho Nitish Kumar jaisa ho’.

On his Delhi visit, he said: “We have had deep discussions with leaders of Congress, AAP and left parties. All of them agreed on opposition unity. I have decided to visit across the country to unite the maximum number of people of the opposition parties.

“I have been advocating for opposition unity ever since the formation of the Mahagathbandhan government in Bihar. Everyone appreciated my decision to leave the NDA. I was waiting for the call for 7 months and when they (Congress leaders) called me, I went there and interacted with them.”

Nitish Kumar asks supporters to desist from taking his name as next PM

Meanwhile, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday appealed to his supporters to avoid chanting his name as the next Prime Minister of the country.

Addressing a gathering of JD-U workers at the party headquarters here, Nitish Kumar said that such slogans would derail the work he is doing at the moment.

“I request all of you with folded hands to avoid chanting my name as the Prime Minister of the country. I am working on uniting the opposition parties in the country to fight against the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha election. Such an act may hurt our aim. So please avoid chanting my name,” Nitish Kumar said.

The reaction of the Chief Minister came after his party workers gave him a grand welcome at the head office of JD-U on Friday, throwing rose petals on him after his tour of Delhi where he met key opposition leaders Rahul Gandhi, Mallikarjun Kharge, Arvind Kejriwal, Sitaram Yechuri and D. Raja.

Nitish Kumar also appealed to the people of Bihar not to vote for the BJP. — IANS
