RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Saturday said he would soon meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi for a stronger opposition unity against the BJP at national level.
“Definitely we will talk about the present political conditions and also the ways to forge a stronger unity between the secular and the socialist parties against the BJP,” Yadav said.
“It has been seen that wherever the secular and socialist parties have fought together, they have won elections against the BJP. But where they fought separately, they have lost,” he added.
He added that the parties lost the UP polls to the BJP due to lack of grand alliance and a Bihar-like ‘Mahagathbandhan’ was required at national level to take on the BJP.
On Thursday, JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar had met Sonia Gandhi in New Delhi and advocated unity among opposition parties to take on the BJP-led NDA.
Nitish Kumar also suggested a joint Opposition candidate for the President post and appealed Sonia Gandhi to take the lead in the matter.
