Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar on Thursday met Congress President 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.
However, JDU spokesperson K C Tyagi insisted that the issue of presidential election was not discussed in the meeting. “There should a joint opposition candidate for the top Constitutional post and Sonia Gandhi being the leader of the largest opposition party should take the lead,” he said.
JD(U) has already discussed the matter with Left parties and received a positive response.
The Bihar CM has been calling for a grand alliance of secular parties at the national livel similar to the Mahagathbandhan in Bihar to take on the NDA government. Congress is a partner in the grand alliance in Bihar.
