Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav express strong disapproval towards Mamata Banerjee’s recent decision.

The much-anticipated INDIA meeting in Delhi on December 19 did not go as planned for the opposition alliance. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Yadav left without attending the press conference, causing disappointment among their counterparts. Mamata Banerjee and Arvind Kejriwal proposed Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge as the prime ministerial candidate for the opposition alliance, which led to further tension within the bloc. The Janata Dal (United) of Nitish Kumar expressed their frustration at not being given the post of convenor, despite his experience as the longest-serving Chief Minister in the alliance. Senior JDU members argued that Mr Kumar should be declared the PM candidate due to his seniority, appeal, and charisma, which they believe matches Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s. The JDU’s national spokesperson, KC Tyagi, clarified that neither Nitish Kumar nor Lalu Yadav had publicly proposed Mr Kumar as the convenor or the Prime Ministerial face of the INDIA alliance. The rift within the alliance became apparent after the meeting, with JDU MP Sunil Kumar Pintu criticizing the lack of substantial discussions during the gathering. The main reason behind Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav’s discontent seems to be Mamata Banerjee’s proposal of Mr Kharge as the opposition’s prime ministerial candidate. It is believed that Lalu Yadav wanted to diminish Mr Kumar’s political influence and create a Modi versus Kharge showdown. The JDU has scheduled a national executive meeting in Delhi on December 29, where Nitish Kumar may express his displeasure with the INDIA alliance and outline a new course for himself and the party. The lack of cohesion within the alliance is a cause for concern, as every party has its own agenda and they are aware that unity is crucial for their success against the ruling party.,

Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav, prominent politicians from Bihar, have expressed resentment towards Mamata Banerjee’s recent political move. The West Bengal Chief Minister’s decision to contest the upcoming assembly elections in Assam has raised eyebrows and led to criticism from her counterparts in Bihar. Kumar and Yadav argue that Banerjee’s focus should be on governing her own state rather than indulging in political campaigns elsewhere. They believe that such actions divert attention and resources from addressing the pressing issues faced by the people of West Bengal.
