PATNA (Patna): Sonia Gandhi, the president of Bihar, told Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad, who called her in New Delhi, that detailed talks regarding the formation of the opposition front in the country to challenge the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections will be held only after the election for the post of AICC president.It was also the first meeting between top leaders of the three organisations in more than five years after Nitish split from the BJP in Bihar in August and assumed the role of unionizing the opposition parties in the region.We have urged Soniaji to invite everyone (all opposition sides), considering that the Congress is the largest political party on the national level.After the meeting with Sonia, Lalu told reporters that everyone would come on one platform for negotiating and dethroning the BJP (from the centre) in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

After this election, we will meet again.The new president of Congress will meet with all other opposition parties and hold discussions.If the opposition parties join hands, the RJD chief says the BJP will be deposed from the Centre.We need to drop the BJP and protect the country.

Lalu said that we have united in Bihar and disbanded the BJP.The RJD chief, who was convicted of fodder fraud cases by a special CBI court in Ranchi and released on bail in May this year, said that opposition leaders are not endangered by prison.The country is on the verge of repression, and there are no solutions to problems such as hunger and unemployment.According to Lalu, the opposition is not afraid.

Nevertheless, Lalu said that the opposition isn't afraid at all.Since the formation of the Mahagathbandhan government in August, an ailing Lalu, who was in Delhi for his rehabilitation, had returned to Patna.On Monday, he is scheduled to undergo a kidney transplant in Singapore.In the meantime, Nitish followed Lalu on meetings with the Congress.

We spoke with madam (Sonia).However, because they (Congress) are going to hold an internal organisational election, she (Sonia) will hold lengthy discussions on this issue afterwards.Our viewpoints are the same, but Nitish said that anything about the roles of different people can be said after a few days.Nitish said that when asked how opposition parties in different states would be united, We are asking that different factions come together, but that it may take some time before things start to develop.

During his three-day tour to the national capital, the Bihar CM met with Samajwadi Party leaders Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav, CPI general secretary Sitaram Yechury, and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, among other opposition leaders.
