Union Home Minister and Former President of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Amit Shah on Sunday reiterated that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will fight the upcoming assembly election in Bihar under the leadership of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Shah expressed hope that the alliance would win two-third of 243 seats in Bihar assembly.

Shah addressed a virtual rally setting the tone for assembly election scheduled to be held in September-October. The terms of the current Bihar assembly ends on 29th November so the election process must be completed before that.

“NDA government in Bihar will be formed under Nitish Kumar with two-third majority,” Shah said. He applauded the work of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Shah’s comment about contesting the upcoming election under the leadership of JDU chief Nitish Kumar is important as there has been growing demands from the NDA alliance partners, including by some senior BJP leaders for change of guard in Bihar.

NDA consists of three parties in Bihar – Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal United (JDU), BJP and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP). In an interview to a news agency recently LJP President Chirag Paswan said he would back any plan of change of face in Bihar assembly election if BJP would also like to do that.

“If they (BJP) want to go ahead with Nitish Kumar ji, we are with them, if they want to have a change of mind. whatever decision the BJP takes, we will support,” Paswan had said.

Amit Shah’s virtual rally is seen as a formal launch of election campaign by BJP for Bihar assembly. “The rally is aimed at connecting people with Aatmanirbhar Bharat campaign. The BJP will have 75 such meetings,” Home Minister said.
