Patna Rally

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Prime Minister Narendra Modi today (Sunday, March 3) addressed a ‘Vijay Sankalp’ rally in Patna, Bihar where he slammed opposition for asking proof on airstrike.

Modi said those who are raising doubtable question on airstrike are demoralizing the courage and strength of the armed forces and their statements are benefitting the enemies.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi began his address at the Gandhi Maidan in Patna with the slogan of ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and went on to greet the people of Bihar in Bhojpuri.

Modi, while addressing the gathering in Patna’s Gandhi Maidan paid tribute to the CRPF soldiers who lost their lives in Pulwama attack and expressed the gratitude towards their family.

The rally, which also had LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan in attendance, was reportedly an effort to show full faith and confidence in the Prime Minister for handling the post-Pulwama crisis, which culminated in India’s “non-military” air strikes on Pakistan’s Balakot to demolish JeM camps, state presidents of the parties had said on Friday.

Referring to the development work in Bihar, PM Modi praised Nitish Kumar-Sushil Kumar Modi combine for their achievements in the state, asserting that the NDA government wants to ensure that all sections in the state gain access to best facilities.

Prime Minister Modi assured the people of Bihar that the NDA government works to provide the best of facilities to all sections of society in the state. He lauded the state government for its work towards the development of the state. “Nitish Kumar-Sushil Modi duo has done commendable work in Bihar,” he said.

According to the BJP and JD(U) leaders this event will be fruitful for the NDA in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The political analysts also believe that the event will be a befitting reply to the RJD-led opposition parties and could be an effort to counter the expanding political base of the ‘Mahagathbandhan’.

Nitish Kumar had ended his 17-year alliance with the BJP in 2013 after Modi was declared the prime ministerial candidate ahead of the 2014 general elections. However, his party won just two seats in the 2014 polls. Of the total 40 seats in Bihar, the NDA had won 31 in 2014.

After the Lok Sabha elections, the JD(U) entered into an alliance with the RJD and Congress in Bihar during the 2015 assembly elections and Kumar returned as chief minister. However, he dumped the RJD-Congress-led grand alliance in July 2017, returned to NDA fold and formed a government in Bihar with BJP’s support.

Kumar’s return resulted in a split in the NDA as two of its constituents — Jitan Ram Manjhi’s Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) and Upendra Kushwaha’s Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) — joined hands with the RJD and Congress.

As per the seat-sharing formula, the JD(U) and BJP in Bihar will contest on 17 seats each and Paswan-led LJP will get the remaining six seats for the 2019 general elections.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
