Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, his deputy Tejashwi Yadav and several opposition leaders will attend the Indian National Lok Dal’s public rally on September 25 in Haryana.
INLD leader Abhay Chautala said Tuesday that the party supremo O.P. Chautala has invited Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar, National Conference president Farooq Abdullah, Shiromani Akali Dal patriarch Parkash Singh Badal, Samajwadi party president Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam Singh Yadav, TDP president Chandrababu Naidu and Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik.
O.P. Chautala said that people are fed up with the BJP and “an atmosphere against the ruling party at the Union is building in the country”.
“The September 25 rally will not only showcase opposition unity but also anger against the BJP government,” he said.
“During a meeting with Nitish Kumar ji, Chautala sahab invited him to the September 25 rally in Fatehabad, and he agreed to attend the meeting,” INLD national general secretary Abhay Chautala told PTI.
When contacted, JD(U) leader K.C. Tyagi confirmed to the news agency that Kumar will attend the rally along with Tejashwi Yadav.
“To mark the birthday of former deputy prime minister Devi Lal, various opposition leaders will come together on one stage and it would be an appropriate occasion to discuss various issues,” Tyagi said.
The INLD has been organising public rallies on the birthday of its founder Devi Lal and has been inviting various leaders from opposition parties, other than the Congress.
