Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday mocked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the upcoming assembly polls, saying he has never seen a party more afraid before elections.
“How will they win? I have never any party more afraid before the elections,” Kumar told the media here.
Kumar took the opportunity to highlight the ‘door-to-door’ election campaign that the ruling Janata Dal United has undertaken to get feedback from the people of the state regarding the party’s performance.
“Lalu Prasad Yadav has brought out ‘tam tam’. After this, we will bring out cycles,” he said.
“As you know, we are also conducting door-to-door campaigns using mikes, chariots, loudspeakers. We are reaching out to each and every household in the state,” he added.
According to reports, 10,000 workers of the JD (U) would knock doors of one crore homes and have a “direct conversation” with people on the functioning of the state government.
Former Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi’s Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM), and the BJP will contest the polls together, and their main agenda will be to thwart the incumbent Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s alliance.
The assembly polls in Bihar would be held most likely in September or October this year. (ANI)
