INDIA. Delhi: Ahead of bagging the national party tab for his Aam Aadmi Party, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal planned a meeting with Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav in Delhi today. Reportedly, the opposition parties are coming together to take on the BJP in the national election next year.
Bihar CM and Tejashwi Yadav recently finished their meeting with Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge and party leader Rahul Gandhi.
As per reports, it is the first formal meeting of the top leaders of Congress and the Janata Dal (United), or JD(U), for defeating the big ruling party in the upcoming 2024 election.

Moreover, Kumar is said to meet with various other top leaders, including Sharad Pawar, Arvind Kejriwal, D. Raja, Sitaram Yechury, and Akhilesh Yadav.
Meanwhile, Kejriwal criticized the ruling party and claimed, “The country is going through a very difficult time. I have said many times that probably the most corrupt government in the country is today since independence.”
“Extremely important for all the opposition parties to unite and change the current government in power,” he added.
Hailing Nitish Kumar’s governance, the AAP convener said, “Nitish ji is making efforts towards uniting everyone, including the opposition parties.”
