Patna: Former Congress national president Rahul Gandhi on Friday held a Zoom meeting with party leaders in Bihar where he reviewed poll preparation of the party ahead of the upcoming state elections in which Nitish Kumar seeks his fourth term as the Chief Minister of Bihar.
Gandhi told the party leaders gathered at Sadaqat Ashram in Patna to prepare for the election as the people of Bihar were sick and tired of the failed NDA government and were hungry for an alternative that believes in working for the people of the state instead of engaging in useless talks with no action to back up.
The former Congress chief urged Bihar leaders and others to join force with all opposition parties to take on the NDA in the state Assembly elections slated to be held later this year.
"We should strive to build a new government in Bihar with new, innovative ideas because the current government run by Nitish Kumar has failed on all fronts. People are basically tired of this administration that has turned out to be a complete disaster for the state. Despite Bihar's rich heritage, today it remains in the bottom of the list of developed states solely due to the failure of this government," he said.
Party state president Madan Mohan Jha asked Gandhi to make a swift decision on the face of the Grand Alliance in Bihar to cement a cohesive policy to take on the joint front of Janata Dal-U and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to successfully rid Bihar of this failed government.
Those present at the video-meeting included Bihar party spokesperson Rajesh Rathod, Bihar election in-charge Shakti Sinh Gohil, senior party leaders Sadanand Singh, Kaukab Qadri, Dr. Ashok Kumar, Shakeel Ahmed Khan, Shyam Sundar Singh Dheeraj, Pappu Yadav's wife Ranjit Ranjan, and Akhilesh Prasad Singh, among many others.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
