A day after meeting with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi, Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, was reminded that the position of prime minister is not now open by BJP leader and former Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. The BJP leader took a jab at Nitish Kumar: “Many Bihari youngsters would have gained employment opportunities had Nitish Kumar been aggressive in developing Bihar like he is for his personal goal.”
Where have you been today, Nitish ji? asked RS Prasad, reminding Nitish Kumar that he was Ram Manohar Lohia’s student and the first proponent of non-Congressism.
“You are not the first person to knock on every door today. Before you, many tried the same thing, but without success. The position of prime minister is currently vacant. But there are already a lot of opposition figures in line. Likewise, stand “said RS Prasad.
Nitish Kumar is in Delhi meeting with opposition leaders one month after leaving the BJP’s Bihar alliance and formed the Mahagathbandhan government with the help of the RJD and the Congress. He saw Rahul Gandhi on Monday, who apparently had a significant impact in the abrupt transition of power in Bihar. He will meet with Sitaram Yechury, the general secretary of the CPM, and Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, on Tuesday. Following Nitish Kumar’s meeting with Telangana Chief Minister KCR, a meeting has been set up in New Delhi.
There have been new rumours about Nitish becoming the PM face of the combined opposition before the 2024 Lok Sabha election because the Mahagathbandhan in Bihar regrouped under Nitish Kumar’s leadership. Such assertions have been refuted by Nitish Kumar, who also stated following Rahul Gandhi that he had no desire to become prime minister. “A positive climate will be generated,” he remarked, if the opposition banded together. He met Lalu Prasad Yadav, the president of the RJD, in Patna before travelling to Delhi.
