Nitish Kumar has called a meeting of the opposition party in Patna on June 23 i.e. FridayNew Delhi:
Even before the grand meeting of the opposition parties, the ruckus has started. The Aam Aadmi Party has given an ultimatum to the Congress that if the Congress does not support the ordinance issue, then it will boycott the opposition meeting. Patna: With an aim to oust the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from power at the Centre in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, top leaders of the country's major opposition parties will brainstorm in Patna on Friday and chalk out a strategy to form a strong opposition front against the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
According to Aam Aadmi Party sources, if the Congress does not assure support to the ordinance in Friday's meeting, the AAP will immediately walk out of the meeting. New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written to opposition leaders asking them to discuss the Centre's ordinance on control of administrative services in the national capital and clarify their stand on the matter at a meeting of non-BJP parties scheduled for June 23.
Earlier, AAP's national convener Kejriwal asked opposition leaders not to think of it as a "Delhi-centric problem" and claimed that if there was no opposition, the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP)-led Centre could bring a similar ordinance for other states as well. Patna: Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal (United) leader Nitish Kumar has called a meeting of opposition parties in Patna on Friday to chalk out a joint strategy to take on the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Kejriwal is also going to attend this meeting.
On May 19, the Centre had promulgated an ordinance to set up an authority on transfer and posting of Group A officers in Delhi, which the AAP-led government had termed as a "fraud on the Supreme Court verdict on control of services". Prior to the apex court's May 11 verdict, matters of transfer and posting of all officers in the Delhi government were under the executive control of the Lieutenant Governor. After the ordinance, Kejriwal has been constantly reaching out to leaders of non-BJP parties to garner support against it so that the bill is not passed in Parliament.
