Amit Shah also addressed party workers from the social media wing and discussed many apsects about the electoral strategy. He also dismissed any threat from the so called mahagathbandhan.
Shah accused the opposition of engaging in false rumours and propoganda against the NDA. He reiterated that the NDA is united and will fight the coming elections as one entity.
This is Amit Shah’s first tour of Bihar after Nitish left the MAhagathbandhan and joined the NDA.
The main purpose of the visit is to further enhance coordination with allies apart from strengthening the party.
Considering the preparation for 2019 general polls and even more crucial aspect of seat distribution with allies, the visit is od immense political importance for the BJP.
BJP won 22 seats in Bihar during the 2014 polls, while Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP tasted victory in 6 constituencies. RLSP, lead by Upendra Kushwaha won in 3 seats.
Overall NDA cornered lions share with its candidates winning in 31 out of 40 seats. On the other hand Jd(U) which constested polls alone could only register 2 wins.
The exact seat sharing formula is still far from conclusion , but a forward moverment on the issue has definitely been made with the current visit of party president in Bihar .
