Amid reports of growing dissent between ruling National Democratic Alliance partners the Janata Dal (U) and the Lok Janshakti Party in Bihar, the BJP president J.P. Nadda on Sunday asserted his party would contest the coming Bihar Assembly poll together with the JD(U) and the LJP.

“We will fight together and emerge victorious as well,” asserted the BJP president while addressing the concluding session of the party’s two-day State executive committee virtual meeting.

“Jab-jab BJP-JD(U)-LJP ek saath Bihar mein chunav ladi hai, vijayi hue hain (whenever BJP-JD(U)-LJP have fought elections together in Bihar it has emerged victorious),” said Mr. Nadda.

He further said that “BJP workers will have to add value not only to the BJP but also to our alliance partners”.

“The Bihar BJP workers have to reach every section of society to convey the messages of PM Modi, Bharat and the works done by Nitish Kumar ji.”

The BJP president’s assertion through the virtual meeting comes at a time when the JD(U) and the LJP are engaged in a bitter war of words.

LJP president Chirag Paswan, of late, has been regularly attacking Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his government on several issues, triggering speculation that “all is not well with the NDA”.

In his over half-an-hour address to Bihar BJP leaders and party workers, Mr. Nadda also praised the State government’s efforts to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic and the floods.

He listed several welfare schemes and measures launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi government for the people of the country and Bihar as well during the pandemic.

“The Bihar package announced by PM Modi was implemented in letter and in spirit,” he said. He also mentioned the Patna Metro, the infrastructure development in Bihar and the good work done by All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Patna, during the COVID-19 crisis.

“There are immense challenges during this pandemic time but we could reach out to people for their welfare and it has become an example for everyone.”

He also listed increased COVID-19 testing facilities, production of PPE kits in India, growing recovery rate of affected people in the country and Bihar, door-to- door screening in Bihar, PM’s Garib Kalyan Package, Jan–Dhan yojna, Atmanirbhar Bharat, welfare schemes for street vendors, farmers, migrant labourers, National Education Policy and Digital Health Mission (health card) and asked BJP workers to take this to all people in Bihar.

“You’re the ambassadors of change,” Mr. Nadda told party workers while adding “People of Bihar have high hopes only from the BJP and the NDA”.

‘Opposition a spent force’

He also slammed the Opposition saying, “it has become a spent force”. “The Opposition in Bihar has neither ideology, vision nor any spirit to serve people and it can’t rise above petty politics.”

Assembly elections in the State are due in October-November later this year.

Mr. Nadda also told party workers and leaders that “in this pandemic period only door-to-door campaign will be the most effective way to campaign for the upcoming poll”.

Meanwhile, the BJP has scheduled a party programme from August 25 to October 2 to reach out to the people.

Bhopal, Oct 25 : With just a few days left for the Madhya Pradesh Assembly bypolls, Congress MLA Rahul Lodhi from Damoh on Sunday resigned from his Assembly membership and joined the BJP.

After submitting his resignation to Pro Tem Speaker Rameshwar Sharma, Lodhi reached BJP’s state office and was inducted as its member in the presence of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, party state President Vishnu Dutt Sharma and Urban Administration Minister Bhupendra Singh.

However, the Pro Tem Speaker told the media that Lodhi had sought to resign two days ago but was asked to reconsider his decision. On Saturday, he reiterated his desire to resign and finally quit on Sunday.

Earlier this year, 22 Congress MLAs had resigned from their Assembly membership and joined the BJP under the leadership of Jyotiraditya Scindia, which led to the collapse of the then Kamal Nath-led Congress government.

Three more Congress MLAs later resigned from the Assembly. Now, the latest blow to the Congress has come with the resignation of Rahul Lodhi.

The Madhya Pradesh by-elections in 28 Assembly segments are slated for November 3.

Obama scoffs at Trump’s ’60 Minutes’ interview

Barack Obama

At an event in Miami Florida, former U.S. President Barack Obama scoffed at President Donald Trump for walking out of a ’60 Minutes’ interview.

Former President Barack Obama lit into President Trump during a drive-in rally at the Florida International University campus in support of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Saturday.

With hundreds of cars honking, Obama tore into Trump from the start. The former president said the current occupant in the White House has shown little interest in taking his job seriously and that he “treats the presidency like a reality show.”

Trump “hasn’t shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody except himself and his friends or treating the presidency like a reality show to give himself more attention. And as we noted the other day, his TV ratings are down,” Obama said.

Obama added, “The rest of us have to live with the consequences of what he’s done.”

The former president went on to speak about those consequences as it relates to Trump’s bungling of the pandemic response. And he encouraged Floridians to make Trump a one-term president.

“At least 220,000 Americans are dead. More than 100,000 small businesses have closed. Half a million jobs are gone. Half a million jobs are gone. Right here in Florida. Half a million jobs,” Obama said. “You delivered twice for me, Florida, and now I’m asking you to deliver for Joe and for Kamala [Harris].”

Bengaluru: Upping his ante against the ruling BJP candidate, N. Muniratna, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president D. K. Shivakumar on Saturday appealed to voters not to cast their franchise against such legislators who “sold their previous mandate” for money.

Addressing a poll rally in Rajarajeshwari Nagar constituency here, Shivakumar charged that Munirtana is responsible for this by-election, which was unwarranted. “People of this constituency at least now they should wake up and teach lessons to such “traders”, who did not even hesitate to sell the people’s mandate for their own benefit,” he said.

Recalling few instances of BJP women workers in the constituency filing cases against Muniratna, Shivakumar said that Muniratna is known for several wrongdoings and one of them is misbehaving with women too.

“Did you all not know how he ill-treated women workers of BJP then? Women voters should not forget these things. He should be taught a lesson by women voters of this constituency,” he said.

Meanwhile, Congress candidate, H. Kusuma who accompanied Shivakumar, asserted that she was born here and is a daughter of this constituency. “Please vote for your daughter,” she appealed and tried to connect herself with women voters emotionally.

She added that her only aim was to convert this constituency into a fearless one. “People are living in fear because of my rival. I want to get rid of the fear from people’s hearts,” she said.
