Congress' Shaktisinh Gohil says every party has a right to put a leader’s face forward, but we will decide if the alliance benefits from one face, and who that will be.
The EC announced Friday that Bihar assembly polls will be held in 3 phases from 28 October and the results will be declared on 10 November.
The EC has convened a press conference at 12.30 pm Friday. While the agenda has not been mentioned, the schedule for Bihar assembly polls is likely to be announced.
Right from his time as Union minister under PM Vajpayee, Nitish Kumar has shown the ability to use central projects to build his ‘vikas purush’ image and win polls.
Paswan echoes BJP state unit, which has been pushing for more seats from the JD(U) even though the BJP high command has publicly backed CM Nitish Kumar.
Nitish Kumar had a tried and tested campaign pitch of comparing his term with RJD’s ‘Jungle Raj’, but then came coronavirus, exposing his good governance claims.
BJP’s ground-level assessment says CM Nitish Kumar’s popularity is declining and that he needed to be more aggressive in attacking Lalu Prasad Yadav to ensure NDA victory.
The ruling JD(U) is also worried as the advertisement comes days after the NDA inducted Jitan Ram Manjhi, whom the LJP sees as a counter to Paswan.
The BJP has decided to rope in around 150 odd ‘digital raths’, which will have a large LED screen mounted atop vehicles, and station them at strategic places.
The Bihar Assembly elections are due in October-November. However, the EC not taken a final call on poll dates due to Covid-19 & has sought suggestions from political parties.
