Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president JP Nadda will be coming to Patna on February 22 when he will address the party's state unit to strategize on the upcoming Assembly elections in Bihar.
BJP's Bihar in-charge Bhupendra Yadav, at a party meet in Patna on Sunday, said that this would be Nadda's first visit to Bihar since being anointed as the successor of Amit Shah, the Home Minister of India.
"Mr. Nadda would be inaugurating the newly-built office of the BJP in 11 districts in Bihar including Samastipur, Siwan, Bhagalpur, Arwal, Naugachhia, Lakhisarai, Gopalganj, Sasaram, Saharsa, Aurangabad, and Sheohar by a remote control at Patna office. These new offices are equipped with latest equipment, including an e-library that would help party workers in advancing BJP ideology in their districts," Yadav said.
Nadda will also hold meetings with party functionaries and members of the core committee to ensure the victory of Nitish Kumar who has been declared the face of the NDA in Bihar.
Meanwhile, apparently irked by party leader and MP from Begusarai Giriraj Singh's unbridled useless talks and his knack for creating controversies that put his own party in some very embarrassing situation, Nadda on Saturday summoned him and issued a verbal warning to him to refrain from making any controversial remark that might impede the re-election of Nitish Kumar in the state elections.
Not known for any developmental work but notorious for his extreme right wing cacophony that helps him keep in news, Singh was earlier chastised by even Amit Shah who is privately blaming him and a few others for the party's debacle in the Delhi elections where the BJP secured only eight seats of the 70 with remainder going to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) giving its president a third term as Delhi's Chief Minister.
