In addition to uniting against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the topics of inflation and unemployment may be heavily discussed during the two-day meeting of the ruling Janata Dal-United (JDU) in Bihar, which begins on Saturday. The Joint Democratic Union National Executive and National Council meeting is taking place as speculation over Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar serving as the leader of a united opposition in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections is at its height.
At the gathering location, the party set up hoardings with slogans that alluded to pitting Nitish against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He does not, however, specifically address the BJP leader. It is significant that, up to this point, no major party has backed the request to make Nitish the face of the Prime Minister’s job, with the exception of the ally Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in Bihar. JDU might emphasize the need to bring the opposition together during its meeting.
According to JD(U) national general secretary Afaq Ahmed Khan, some 110 party leaders from throughout the country, including the presidents of its 26 state units, will attend the national executive meeting on Saturday. In attendance at the National Council meeting on Sunday will be more than 250 party leaders. Nitish is scheduled to speak at the conference on both days, according to Khan.
