Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, after a meeting with her Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar and his deputy Tejashwi Yadav on Monday, said that there is "no ego clash" over a grand alliance of anti-BJP parties in 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
After the meeting, the three leaders jointly addressed the media.
"I have made just one request to Nitish Kumar. Jayaprakash (Narayan) ji's movement started from Bihar. If we have an all-party meeting in Bihar, we can then decide where we have to go next. But first, we have to give a message that we are united. I have said earlier, too, that I have no objections. I have always reiterated that BJP should be brought to zero. They have become huge heroes with the help of media, and the fake narratives that they push day-in, day out. All they indulge is in jumlas and goondaism," she said while addressing the media with Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and his deputy Tejashwi Yadav.
On the proposed one-seat-one-candidate formula floated by Nitish Kumar's party, she said that "if thought, vision, and mission are clear, there will be no issues".
Calling it a "very positive discussion", Nitish Kumar said they discussed making all preparations ahead of the upcoming elections.
"Those who are ruling now, have nothing to do. They are just doing their own publicity. Nothing is being done for the nation's development," he said. (with Agency inputs)
