Union Minister Prakash Javadekar Friday clarified that the BJP has no links with LJP and said he is confident that their alliance with JD(U), HAM-S and VIP will win 3/4th of the Assembly seats in Bihar polls. Alleging that Chirag Paswan is only trying to create confusion by making misleading statements, Javadekar said his efforts will not bear any fruit. In an interview with The Indian Express, Paswan had said the fight between the LJP and the BJP is a friendly one. “If the BJP wins, we will hail it. If we win, we will support the BJP. I want to see a BJP-led LJP government in Bihar,” he said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold 12 rallies in poll-bound Bihar, BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis, who is overseeing the party’s election preparations, said on Friday. “On the 23rd, Modi will hold rallies in Sasaram, Gaya and Bhagalpur. On the 28th, he will first visit Darbhanga, Muzaffarpur and Patna,” he added.
BJP president J P Nadda, who is scheduled to hold three rallies today, spoke on how the “political culture” has changed ever since Modi came to power. “Before the 2014 elections, political leaders used to accuse each other of inciting hatred, casteism and breaking society, in their speeches. But after the election of PM Modi, the political culture has changed. Now, leaders have to show their work report card,” he told the crowd.
