Fadnavis appointed as Bihar in-charge by BJP

Fadnavis Devendra

Mumbai : As expected, the former Maharashtra chief minister, Devendra Fadnavis was appointed as the in-charge for the Bihar assembly election 2020 for the BJP ahead of the state elections there.

The announcement came on a day party president JP Nadda is holding talks with state BJP leaders to discuss the three-phase polls to the 243-member state assembly, including seat-sharing arrangements with allies like the JD (U) and the LJP. The LJP has been blowing hot and cold over the issue as it is said to be unhappy over the offer being made to it by the BJP.

On the other hand, Fadnavis claimed that the BJP alliance was “far ahead” of the Mahagathbandhan in Bihar and will win the assembly election with a thumping majority.

The senior BJP leader, who visited the Chhinnamastika Devi temple in Ramgarh, about 70 km from Ranchi, refused to elaborate and only added that he was on a spiritual visit.

The assembly election in Bihar is scheduled in three phases on October 28, November 3 and 7. The counting of votes will take place on November 10.
