Opposition unity is not possible without Congress: JDU

If JDU's allies are to be believed, Nitish Kumar wants a clear message that he considers the Congress as the center for planning any opposition unity. JDU's national spokesperson KC Tyagi said that smaller parties had earlier burnt their hands by keeping the Congress away. The party is still the main rival of BJP. Opposition unity is not possible without Congress. He said that our experiment with the Third Front has failed from the time of VP Singh to HD Deve Gowda and IK Gujral. In today's times, we need a front against the BJP in which the Congress and other smaller parties are rallying around it.

Nitish Kumar will meet more and more opposition leaders: KC Tyagi

Since Nitish ji has been an assimilating man with high credentials as the CM of Bihar, we are very much hopeful of the opposition uniting with a common agenda. JDU said that Nitish Kumar has also received an invitation from former Haryana CM Om Prakash Chautala to attend the birth anniversary of his father late Chaudhary Devi Lal on September 25, and he will probably attend it.
