While the chief ministers of Delhi and Jharkhand discuss various issues of the country, their meeting holds significance amid ongoing talks of opposition unity
Amid the churning in the Indian political field, Delhi Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal met with his counterpart from Jharkhand, Hemant Soren, to discuss “various issues of the country”.
The meeting assumes significance amid the country’s emerging political scenario ahead of the 2024 general election, as the opposition is trying to cobble together a front to stop the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from recording a hattrick of wins.
Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Soren’s Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) have been at the forefront of attacking the BJP-led central government on various issues.
In a tweet, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader said he had a courtesy meeting with Soren.
“Had a courtesy meeting with Jharkhand CM Shri @HemantSorenJMM ji in Delhi today. There was a meaningful conversation on various issues of the country,” Kejriwal said.
