BJP national president J P Nadda has called for a meeting of party MPs from the state in New Delhi on August 29 to decide on the final strategy for the state assembly elections which is around the corner.
The meeting will be attended by all the 17 BJP MPs from the state, general secretary, and the party’s state in-charge Bhupender Yadav to deliberate on the upcoming polls towards the end of the year.
The national president discussed the executive committee of the party’s Bihar unit on Sunday.
The meeting will also be attended by the Rajya Sabha MPs of the state, say sources.
There is also news about a seat-sharing discussion with allies JD (U) and LJP once the lockdown comes to an end in Bihar after September 6. It is crucial that this meeting of the BJP MPs is taking place ahead of that meet.
On Sunday, Nadda had confirmed the BJP leadership’s decision that NDA will go into the assembly polls under the leadership of chief minister Nitish Kumar.
The BJP has given former Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis the charge of the election in Bihar, picking him as the election in-charge for the state. Former Jharkhand chief minister Raghubar Das has also conducted online meetings with party workers from the extremely backward classes (EBCs).
The party has already begun its door-to-door campaigning from August 25 amidst the raging Covid-19 pandemic. The BJP has initiated a virtual campaign forming a slew of WhatsApp groups. These groups will be used to reach out to the booth-level workers of the party. These ground-level workers will also receive the party’s message in real-time. During these trying times, virtual campaigns are going to play a big role in the upcoming election.
