Nitish Kumar met Rahul Gandhi in Delhi, also met other opposition leaders. India News – Times of India

New Delhi: Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar Met Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in Delhi on Monday. The two are understood to have discussed the current political situation in the country and ways to ensure opposition unity.
Kumar is also set to meet other leaders of opposition parties in what is being seen as an attempt to present a united front against the BJP.
This comes on the heels of Kumar ending his party JD(U)’s alliance with the BJP. This move resulted in the fall of the NDA government in Bihar. Nitish, however, returned as chief minister in a new alliance of RJD, JD(U), Congress, Left parties and HAM.
Nitish Kumar is accompanied by his party’s national president Lalan Singh and state ministers Sanjay Jha and Ashok Chaudhary.
Nitish is being seen in some quarters as a possible face of opposition unity for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Sources said Nitish Kumar will meet Kejriwal, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Left leaders D Raja and Sitaram Yechury and others in Delhi on Tuesday, sources said. On Wednesday, he will meet the President and the Vice President.
Sources also said that Nitish Kumar will soon meet leaders of the opposition camps along with Maharashtra, Haryana and Karnataka. He is likely to meet Om Prakash Chautala, and Bhupinder Singh Hooda in Haryana, former Maharashtra CMs Uddhav Thackeray and Pawar, and former prime minister HD Deve Gowda and his son and former Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy.
