A meeting of opposition parties is to be held in Bihar’s capital Patna to prepare a roadmap for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Earlier it was proposed on June 12, although it has been given in view of Rahul Gandhi’s visit to America.
Now it is being said that the meeting will be held on 23rd June. However it’s not confirmed.
On this issue, CM Nitish Kumar said in Patna on Monday that we have also said the Congress that you should also discuss among yourselves and decide, after that the meeting will be held on whatever date is fixed.
Nitish Kumar said that the meeting which was to be held on June 12th, will not happen now. The heads of all parties should attend the meeting. It would not be right if any other representative attends the meeting.
Recently, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh had said that the Congress will participate in the meeting of opposition parties to be held in Patna, but the party president has to decide on who will go.
The BJP has taken a jibe at the postponement of the meeting.
Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that we want to have a responsible opposition, but this is a different kind of opposition unity, half of them are those who want leadership, half are against someone.
16 opposition parties have given consent to attend the meeting to be held in Patna.
Parties like DMK, Aam Aadmi Party, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, Shiv Sena (Uddhav Thackeray), CPI(M), CPI, Congress, TMC, SP, BRS are to attend the meeting.
