Tejashwi Yadav discusses the Nitish-Lalu-Sonia summit and the promises of “20 lakh employment” detractors


Tejashwi Yadav said on Monday that Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, and his ally Lalu Yadav would soon meet Sonia Gandhi as the opposition worked to unite against the BJP in front of the 2024 elections.

When Madam Sonia Ji returns, a meeting will take place. Days after Nitish Kumar stated that he was eager to bring the opposition parties together, the Bihar deputy chief minister informed reporters that both of them (Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav) will go together. When visiting Delhi last week, Kumar had meetings with a number of opposition figures, including Rahul Gandhi and Arvind Kejriwal. Sonia Gandhi is travelling for medical attention.

Last week, Kumar had stated, “We want to be the primary front, not the third front.” He had also spoken with Mulayam Singh Yadav, the founder of the Samajwadi Party, and as a result, a banner with the message “UP + Bihar = Gayi Modi Sarkar” was spotted at the SP headquarters in Lucknow, implying that the alliance would reduce the influence of the BJP.

Tejashwi Yadav also poked fun at individuals who have criticised the Grand Alliance’s pledge to provide 20 lakh employment for young people in his most recent remarks. “Those who don’t think this is true ought to wait and see. It will undoubtedly occur. I won’t respond to anything someone says, he said, according to news source ANI.

“This is our commitment as members of the government. This will undoubtedly occur, “Added he.

Following the BJP, pollster Prashant Kishor is now criticising the Nitish Kumar-Tejashwi Yadav administration over the jobs pledge. As the Bihar CM implied last week that “it’s possible he wants to aid the BJP,” Kishor responded: “Let’s wait for a year and see,” casting doubt on the effectiveness of the collaboration.
