Decision on INDIA alliance convenor to be taken tomorrow: Lalu Prasad


Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, who has reached Mumbai to take part in the meeting of opposition parties, said a decision regarding the appointment of a national convener for the INDIA bloc will be taken on Thursday. “It will be decided tomorrow,” Lalu Yadav said answering a query.
“The agenda will be to make preparations for the times ahead. Elections are approaching. If candidates have to be decided, we need to sit together,” he added. The third meeting of opposition parties is scheduled to take place in Mumbai on August 31 and September 1. The opposition parties held the second meeting in Bengaluru and decided to call their alliance INDIA.   Lalu Prasad Yadav along with his son and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav reached Mumbai ahead of the meeting.
Before his departure to Mumbai, Lalu Yadav used Bihari slang to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said the opposition parties were working to oust the BJP-led government.  ” Mumbai mein Narendra Modi ke nareti (throat) pe chadhne jaa rahe hain humlog. Narendra Modi ka nareti pakde huye hain hum, hatana hai,” he said.
