Why Sonia Gandhi asked Nitish, Lalu to meet again after 10 days to talk Opposition unity for 2024 polls

Nitish and Lalu reportedly wanted to seek Sonia's consensus for approaching regional parties whom the Congress has stayed away from in recent years.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar continues to take the lead in stitching together a united Opposition for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. On 25 September 2022, the Janata Dal (United) leader met Congress leader Sonia Gandhi at her residence in Delhi. Nitish Kumar was accompanied by his foe-turned-friend Lalu Prasad Yadav.

The agenda of the meeting was to agree on making compromises for Opposition unity, according to an ANI report. Another issue on the table was Nitish and Lalu reportedly seeking Sonia's consensus for approaching regional parties whom the Congress has stayed away from in recent years.

Earlier in the day, many Opposition leaders attended an INLD rally in Haryana's Fatehabad.

Reports suggest that Nitish and Lalu are planning overtures to Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in Telangana, Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) in Haryana, Yuvajana Sramika Rythu (YSR) Congress Party in Andhra Pradesh, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh, Odisha's Biju Janata Dal (BJD), and People's Democratic Party (PDP) and the National Conference (NC) in Jammu and Kashmir.
