'Party leaders will make people aware about the core ideology of growth with social justice in Bihar while seeking vote for the candidates'
While BJP was busy dispelling the notion that Bihar party leaders were barred in Gujarat during Assembly polls there, its ally JD(U) has decided to line up Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, ministers and Parliamentarians from here to propagate "Bihar model of development" in the elections in Gujarat.
"JD(U) will shortly finalise the list of candidates in Gujarat Assembly elections after which the party will line up its senior leaders including national president Sharad Yadav, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, state ministers and Parliamentarians to propagate Bihar model of development to voters of Gujarat," said party general secretary and in-charge of elections K C Tyagi.
He said over telephone that the party would in all likelihood contest 30 seats in the 182-member Assembly as it had done in the last polls there. It had managed one seat in Gujarat last time.
JD(U) and BJP are running coalition government in Bihar under Nitish Kumar for the last seven years.
Bihar JD(U) president Vashist Narayan Singh said as per request sent by the party's Gujarat unit and after consulting the central leadership, ministers and others would be sent to Gujarat for campaign for the Assembly polls.
Tyagi said "Bihar model of development" would be the party's main slogan in Gujarat.
"The party leaders will make people aware about core ideology of growth with social justice in Bihar while seeking vote for the candidates there," the JD(U) general secretary said.
