BJP Targets To Win Three-Fourth Seats For NDA In Bihar Polls
Patna: Bihar BJP on Saturday set a target to win three-fourth of seats for the NDA in the assembly elections due in October-November.
Stating the target in presence of BJP national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav and others, state party president Sanjay Jaiswal made an appeal to 76 lakh party workers upto Panchayat level to ensure that the coalition achieves the mark.
“We have set a target of winning three-fourth seats for NDA in Bihar. We will ensure that the coalition achieves the mark,” Jaiswal said while addressing the two-day state executive committee meeting that started Saturday.
National Democratic Alliance in Bihar comprises of BJP, Nitish Kumar-led JD(U) and Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP.
Precautions have been taken for the conduct of the meet in the midst of raging Covid-19 pandemic in the state with only a handful of leaders including Bhupendra Yadav, Jaiswal and state ministers-Nand Kishore Yadav and Prem Kumar- sitting on dais in the state headquarters.
Former Maharashtra chief minister and party’s election in-charge for Bihar Devendra Fadnavis joined them virtually.
BJP’s national president J P Nadda will give his valedictory speech Sunday.
The caution in organising the event comes in the backdrop of its over two dozen leaders and workers testing positive at the state headquarters in July in course of conducting regional meetings as part of election preparations.
