Devendra Fadnavis appeals to voters to re-elect NDA in Bihar
Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who will start the BJP’s poll campaign from Saturday, has appealed people across the state to re-elect the NDA, saying that only a government which can work along with Modi government can take the state on the path of development.
"Only a government which can work along Modi government can take Bihar forward, unlike a government having differences such as the West Bengal government. Farmers in Bengal are not getting PM Kisan scheme's benefit just because their Chief Minster has not sent the list. This incident caused loss to farmers only, state and centre remain unaffected," Fadnavis was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
"I hope that Bihar will elect NDA government in coming elections. The future of Bihar's youth will be in better condition under the NDA government. Dates for Bihar assembly elections will be announced in coming days and the party has given me the opportunity to work for the party here," he added.
The 243 assembly constituencies of Bihar will go into polls this year in October or November. The current tenure of the present government will end on November 29.
