Amit Shah launches campaign for Bihar Assembly polls

The BJP will form the next government in Bihar, party chief Amit Shah said here on Tuesday while launching his party’s campaign for the Assembly polls scheduled for later this year.

“BJP is going to form the next government in Bihar. It is clear from the upbeat large gatherings of party booth level workers here,” Shah said in his short speech in Hindi after formally sounding the party’s poll bugle in the State.

Shah also targeted Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad, saying that even if they go for a grand alliance of their parties, the BJP will still triumph.

“Zero plus zero hardly makes anything. Nitish and Lalu, by joining hands, will have no impact on the BJP’s goal to form the next government in Bihar,” Shah said. He added that Nitish is trying to bring jungle raj again to Bihar but the BJP will not allow it. “Only a BJP-led government can develop Bihar,” he said.

At present there are 90 lakh BJP members in the State, Shah said, urging party members to reach out to each and every household in rural and urban areas to counter the mis-propaganda by party rivals. “Opposition parties across the country are creating confusion over the Modi’s government Land Bill. I can assure people that not an inch of land will be handed over to corporate houses. Land will be utilised for the development of rural people and national development,” he said.

Both Shah and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who was also present, dwelt on the achievements of the Modi government in the past 10 months.

Shatrughan not invited

Actor-turned-BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha today said he has not received any invitation to the party’s mega show here. “My name or photograph does not figure in any of the banners, hoardings and posters despite being a local MP,” he said over phone from his Mumbai residence.

He claimed many a leader in the State “felt threatened” by his personality and that was why they were trying to keep him away, “so that they do not look dwarfed due to my presence.”
