Bihar Elections: BJP leaders meet Nitish Kumar, talks over seat sharing
Patna : Top leaders from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) met Nitish Kumar on Saturday as the parties plan joint preparation for upcoming assembly elections later this year. Senior BJP leader JP Nadda met Nitish Kumar at his residence and held informal discussion on the seat sharing for the polls.
Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and BJP national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav were also among the leaders who were present in the meeting today.
"Only a government which can work along Modi government can take Bihar forward, unlike a government having differences such as the West Bengal government. Farmers in Bengal are not getting PM Kisan scheme's benefit just because their Chief Minster has not sent the list. This incident caused loss to farmers only, state and centre remain unaffected," Mr Fadnavis had told reporters in Patna on Friday.
"I hope that Bihar will elect NDA government in coming elections. The future of Bihar's youth will be in better condition under the NDA government. Dates for Bihar assembly elections will be announced in coming days and the party has given me the opportunity to work for the party here," he said.
Meanwhile, the Opposition parties have been slamming the ruling govt in Bihar for dragging Sushant Singh Rajput's death into politics after posters were seen in the city.
"We do not want to make Sushant Singh Rajput's death an election issue. I was told I would work in Bihar long before this case happened. This is linked to the common man's emotion. We will ensure he gets justice and we will not stop until justice is done," Mr Fadnavis said.
"That is why we say, na bhoolenge, na bhoolne denge (we won't forget, we will not let anyone forget)," he said, referring to the phrase on the posters put up by BJP's cultural unit in Bihar.
The assembly elections are expected to be held around October-November.
