Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday met NCP chief Sharad Pawar. Kumar, who is in the national capital on a four-day visit, has been meeting Opposition leaders with an aim to forge unity among them for a joint fight against the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. He had met Left leaders -- CPIM general secretary Sitaram Yechury and CPI general secretary D Raja -- on Tuesday.

It is important to come together first, Kumar, who held deliberations with Pawar on the broad contours of the opposition alliance, said. The JD(U) leader said the time was ripe to present an alternative to the BJP which, he alleged, was "not doing anything for the people". "Both Pawar and I are keen to unite opposition forces who are not with the BJP. A leader of the alliance can be decided later. It is important to come together first," Kumar told reporters after a 30-minute meeting with the NCP supremo.
