JD(U) spokesperson K C Tyagi said RJD leader and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah, CPI(M)’s Sitaram Yechury and BJP leader Birender Singh have also given their consent to attend the rally to mark the birth anniversary of former deputy prime minister and INLD founder Devi Lal.
Lok Sabha MP and Rashtriya Loktantrik Party’s Hanuman Beniwal, a former BJP ally from Rajasthan, will also attend the rally, he said. “It will be a historic meeting that will mark the consolidation of like-minded forces against the ruling BJP in the run up to the 2024 Lok Sabha polls,” Tyagi said.
