Patna: Has everything gone well between the BJP and JDU, the two partners of the NDA (National Democratic Alliance) in Bihar? This seems to be the case with the changed attitude of Union Minister Giriraj Singh. On Saturday, BJP MP from Begusarai and Union Minister Giriraj Singh said that the next assembly election in Bihar will be contested under Nitish Kumar.
It is worth noting that a few days ago, BJP national president Amit Shah had made it clear that the election will be fought under the leadership of Nitish Kumar, after witnessing a verbal spat between the two parties in Bihar. During a conversation with press people in Begusarai on Saturday, Giriraj said that Bihar's Assembly elections will be fought under the leadership of Nitish Kumar. The national president has taken this decision, we are with that decision. It is clear that NDA will contest elections in Bihar, headed by Nitish Kumar.
Giriraj Singh further said that in the Lok Sabha elections, we had fielded candidates for equal seats. It is expected that the assembly elections will also be fought on this basis. JDU fought more seats than the BJP while in NDA in Bihar assembly elections. In the last election, the two parties fought separately. At the same time, in the 2005 and 2010 Bihar assembly elections, JDU fought for 142 seats, while BJP on 101 seats.
