Even before election dates have been announced for the Bihar assembly elections 2015 , BJP has taken the lead and has announced Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s campaign for the state. Close on the successful public meeting in Muzaffarpur on 25 July,according to media reports Modi is planning to hold three more public meetings in August in an attempt to woo the people .
Modi is expected to hold a public meeting in Gaya on 9 August, in Saharsa on 19 August, and in Bhagalpur on 30 August. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) announced its election campaign in Bihar on 16 July. “Prime Minister will hold a total of four public meetings before the assembly elections are announced in Bihar. All his other public meetings will be planned once the election commission announces the dates,” said a senior BJP leader from Bihar. The polls are expected to be held in September or October. Senior BJP leaders estimate that the party will hold a total of thousand meetings in the state, with Modi addressing at least a dozen. Around 250 trucks with TV screens airing speeches of Modi, and songs will traverse the state.
Further the BJP leaders have divided Bihar into four major areas—Begusarai, Patna, Muzaffarpur and Saharsa. The party has made different leaders responsible for each of these areas. The party’s strategy is quite similar to what it used in Uttar Pradesh during the Lok Sabha elections and Maharashtra and Haryana during the assembly elections.
Buoyed by the response to his rally in Muzaffarpur last week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address three more rallies in poll-bound Bihar next month, beginning with one at Gaya on August 9, followed by one in Saharsa on August 19, Bihar BJP President Mangal Pandey, told reporters.
PM Modi is also tentatively scheduled to address an election rally at Bhagalpur on August 30, he said. With regard to PM Modi’s scheduled rally at Gaya, Pandey said that, he held a meeting with the BJP MPs, MLAs/MLCs and ex-legislators of Magadh and Shahabad region to prepare for the rally, which he claimed, would be the biggest so far held at the venue. The Prime Mnister had last week addressed a public meeting at Chakkar Maidan in Muzaffarpur to kick off the NDA’s campaign for the Bihar Assembly polls due later this year.
