BIHAR: Pushpam Priya Choudhary, a woman based in the UK, has declared herself as a CM candidate for the upcoming Bihar polls.

In almost all English and Hindi dailies of the state, a full-page advertisement was run on March 8 in which the candidate launched her party called ‘Plurals’.

She has a Master of Public Administration, London School of Economics and Political Science; MA Development Studies, IDS, University of Sussex.

She is the daughter of Binod Chaudhary is a JD(U) leader and former member of the legislative council (MLC).

She tweeted, "Bihar needs pace, Bihar needs wings, Bihar needs change. Because Bihar deserves better and better is possible. Reject bullshit politics, join Plurals to make Bihar run and fly in 2020. #PluralsHasArrived #ProgressiveBihar2020."

Last year, putting an end to all speculation, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who is also the JD(U) president, made it clear that his party will contest the 2020 state assembly polls together with the BJP as an ally of the NDA. “We will contest next year’s state assembly polls as an ally of NDA and we will win more than 200 of 243 assembly seats. In the 2010 assembly polls NDA won 206 seats, next time we will cross this figure”, Nitish Kumar said in a rejoinder to opposition leaders statements that the JD-U and the BJP will not contest the polls together while addressing party leaders and workers.

Meanwhile, West Bengal is also gearing up for the polls.

West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee had said during a public meeting that “those who have come from Bangladesh are citizens of India…they have got citizenship. You don’t need to apply for citizenship again. You have been casting your votes in elections, electing PM and CM…now they are saying that you are not citizens…don’t believe them.”

She also added that no refugee living in the state will be deprived of Indian citizenship.

“We do not want Bengal to turn into another Delhi or another Uttar Pradesh,” she further added.

Banerjee had said that Delhi riots were a “planned genocide.”

While addressing an event at Netaji Indoor Stadium in Kolkata she said,”We are sad, and criticize what happened in Delhi. Is it a riot? It’s a planned genocide and later it was called communal. Everyday bodies coming out of drains.”

The words come right after Home Minister Amit Shah had claimed that BJP will get two-thirds majority in Bengal assembly poll.
