Opp Bengaluru meet a ‘meeting of opportunists and power-hungry leaders’, says BJP

New Delhi: The BJP on Monday slammed the scheduled meeting of the opposition parties in Bengaluru calling it a “meeting of opportunists and power-hungry” leaders and said that such an alliance will not do any good for the country at present or in the future.

Opposition parties’ meet in Bengaluru is a meeting of opportunists

Addressing a press conference, senior BJP leader and former Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad ridiculed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and said he has gone to attend the opposition parties’ meeting in Bengaluru instead of being in the national capital to provide relief to the people affected by the flood.

Prasad also hit out at the Congress alleging that it has not said a word on the Kejriwal government’s “mismanagement” during the flood situation in Delhi or on the violence during panchayat polls in West Bengal, where the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC is in power.

“Opposition parties’ meet in Bengaluru is a meeting of opportunists and power-hungry leaders,” Prasad told reporters. “Such an alliance is neither good for India’s present nor for its future,” he charged.

Leaders of 26 opposition parties, including the Congress, AAP and TMC, are arriving in Bengaluru to attend the two-day brainstorming session in Bengaluru from Monday and they are likely to start work on a common minimum programme and announce a joint agitational plan to take on the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.

Among top opposition leaders, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar along with RJD chief Lalu Prasad and Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav have already left for Bengaluru on Monday to attend the second meeting of the opposition parties.

Kumar is accompanied by his party JD(U)’s national president Rajiv Ranjan Singh and state Water Resources Minister Sanjay Kumar Jha.

Fifteen parties attended the last meeting for opposition unity hosted by Kumar in Patna on June 23. Congress Parliamentary Party chairperson Sonia Gandhi is also likely to attend the meeting this time.

Other top leaders expected to attend the meeting include former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, besides former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
