Congress will participate in Nitish Kumar’s major opposition gathering in Bihar: Sources
Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, has reached out to opposition figures to forge a united front against the BJP before the 2024 elections. The opposition will meet in Patna on the 12th of this month.
The Congress will take part in the meeting: Jairam Ramesh
The Congress will participate in a potentially significant gathering of ‘like-minded’ political parties, or those that oppose the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, scheduled for June 12 in Patna, Bihar, according to Jairam Ramesh, the party’s communications coordinator.
It occurred less than ten days after Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, met with Mallikarjun Kharge, the head of the Congress, to plan the meeting. According to sources, the strategy discussion centered on separating issues at the state- and national levels.

“Now, our nation will be one. Our message emphasizes the power of democracy. With Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, Rahul Gandhi and I discussed the current political climate,” Kharge tweeted following the conference.
Congress Communication Head Jai Ram Ramesh’s Statement
“We’ll be there for the meeting on the 12th of this month in Patna. It is up to you to choose who will be sent. We will attend the meeting, but I am confident that the Congress president (Mallikarjun Kharge) and other leaders will make the final decision,” Ramesh told news agency ANI.
JMM also attend the meeting
In addition, the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha of chief minister Hemant Soren will be there. “Since every opposition organization accepted engagement we, too, will attend,” Soren told the press. In Jharkhand, the coalition government of JMM and the Congress are in power.
DMK will undoubtedly attend the meeting: Stalin
However, Tamil Nadu’s chief minister MK Stalin, who is rumored to have previous obligations on June 12, might not be there. Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the party in power in Tamil Nadu, is also anticipated to attend.
“I will participate in the Mettur Dam’s inauguration on the same day… even the president of Congress won’t be capable to make it because he will be stopped at another event. As a result, I requested a postponement of the meeting. However, DMK will undoubtedly attend the meeting.
The big meeting of the opposition
The opposition’s efforts to band together against Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2024, in which the BJP and Modi will run for an unprecedented third consecutive term in office, are (potentially) making significant progress with the meeting later this month.
The fact that these parties will convene in Bihar may be a reflection of the success of outreach initiatives made by Nitish Kumar and his deputy Tejashwi Yadav, who has met with significant opposition figures over the past few weeks to rally support for the anti-BJP front.
