In the aftermath of the Congress party's setbacks in the Assembly polls in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh, Congress MLA Neetu Singh from Bihar has suggested that the party should consider contesting the 2024 Lok Sabha elections under the leadership of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
Expressing her opinion, Singh stated, "I firmly believe that the Congress should show a big heart and offer Nitish Kumar leadership of the INDIA bloc. Nitish Kumar is continuously doing good works in Bihar in every sector. If INDIA would contest under the leadership of Nitish Kumar, it would be better for the alliance as well as for the country."
Singh, who represents Hisua in Nawada district, highlighted Nitish Kumar's role in uniting opposition parties across the country, describing it as a significant and successful effort. She expressed confidence in Nitish Kumar's capability to lead the alliance effectively.
Furthermore, Singh shared her disappointment over the Congress's performance in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, expressing the belief that the party had overlooked smaller parties and INDIA partners in the elections. She attributed the loss of 72 seats with narrow margins to this neglect of smaller parties.
