NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Amit Shah is visiting Bihar today. He will stay in Bihar for two days in order to make preparations for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The goal is to make the party a powerful force against the Mahagatbandhan government in the state.
The Bihar unit of the BJP has created a new slogan to further encourage the party. Moreover, they are also urging the people to support the party to implement development in the state. The said slogan is, "Aao chale Bhajpa ke sath, Kare Bihar ka Vikash" (let's support BJP for the development of Bihar).
Prior to Shah's first trip to the state, after chief minister Nitish Kumar parted ways with the BJP to join the grand alliance government comprising of RJD, Congress and others.
Amit Shah's visit will also see the Union Minister addressing the 'Jan Bhavna Mahasabha' in the Seemanchal area for the first time in Bihar. The Seemanchal area comprises of Kathar, Araria and Kishanganj districts.
The visit by Shah indicates the BJP's determination and strategy to win a majority of seats in the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha and 2025 Bihar Assembly.
The Union Minister's schedule for today's visit included a gathering at the 'Jan Bhavna Mahasabha', which he was supposed to address at 12 noon at the Rangbhoomi Ground in Purnia. The BJP was full of high spirits ahead of Shah's visit to the bordering districts of Seemanchal and Kishanganj districts.
The likes of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, are of the view that the purpose behind Amit Shah choosing the Seemanchal area is to do religious polarization.
