Nitish Kumar’s ‘Unity Tour’ Takes Him to Sharad Pawar, Uddhav Thackeray in Maharashtra | News from India

MUMBAI: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Deputy Prime Minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav met with NCP Chairman Sharad Pawar and Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Uddhav Thackeray to discuss opposition unit nationwide.
To mobilize anti-BJP parties, Kumar had recently met with AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge, Congress politician Rahul Gandhi and New Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of the AAP.
Pawar said it was time for anti-BJP parties to unite to protect democracy and democratic institutions. “The gross abuse of power and of central agencies has become the rule. We will have to mobilize activists to stop this trend,” she said.
Pawar expressed concern about how one person was appointed governor. “When he was here, I spoke out against him publicly. He is a classic example of how that person destroyed the institution of Raj Bhavan. Since he’s not here, it won’t be appropriate to talk about him. In my opinion, in view of the apex court order, it will be easier to campaign against the BJP in the state,” Pawar said.
Kumar and Yadav met Thackeray at his residence, Matoshree, in Bandra (East). “We had talked to each other and agreed to meet. The SC order has also arrived… [W]We know of the injustice done to him. SC order is a good thing. It is very surprising that the name and symbol of a party was given to someone else. We are all with him on this. We have come to ensure that across the country more parties unite, unite and we fight together,” said Kumar.
