Congress hopes from Lalu, Nitish

The Congress will certainly have a role to play in opposition unity. Therefore Jairam Ramesh need not say again and again that without Congress there will be no opposition unity or after Bharat Jodo Yatra Congress will become so strong that no one will be able to ignore it. These things are by no means because regional parties have no conflict with the Congress in most states. Where there is conflict, however strong the Congress becomes, coordination will be difficult. So, when the time comes, the unity of the opposition will be formed and Congress will also have a role in it. Congress will get the biggest help in this work from the leaders of Bihar. Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar will be the most helpful for the Congress in this work.

Lalu Prasad has said in Patna that he and Nitish together will go to Sonia Gandhi. Nitish is yet to meet Sonia and Rahul since becoming the Chief Minister. Tejashwi Yadav has met Sonia Gandhi in Delhi. Nitish Kumar was in Delhi for several days and met opposition leaders but then Sonia Gandhi was abroad. That’s why we could not meet. Then Nitish had said that he would meet Sonia Gandhi after her return from abroad. However, whenever Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar meet, it should not make any difference. Both these leaders will make room for the Congress in the opposition alliance.

In Bihar and Jharkhand, although the Congress is part of the alliance, Lalu and Nitish will make such an effort in other states as well. Both of them can play a role in getting the Congress included in the socialist camp. The most interesting case is of Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Telangana and Haryana. With Akhilesh Yadav, HD Kumaraswamy, K Chandrashekhar Rao and Omprakash Chautala, Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar can do the work of building the harmony of the Congress. This will have a big impact on the electoral prospects.
