Patna, July 12: Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah on Thursday said that their alliance with Janata Dal-United(JDU) will continue in Bihar and they will fight the upcoming 2018 General Election together on all 40 seats.
Shah, who is on a day-long visit to Patna, made the announcement while addressing BJP workers here.
“Our alliance with Nitish Kumar will continue in Bihar. Nitish Kumar joined hands with the BJP as he was not able to stay with the corrupt people. Our alliance will win all 40 Lok Sabha seats from Bihar and form the NDA Government at the Center,” he said.
Shah on his arrival met JD-U chief and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar at the breakfast.
BJP Chief landed here earlier in the morning to interact with party leaders and workers to design strategies leading up to the 2019 general elections.
The team of BJP leaders, including Union Ministers from Bihar, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi earlier thronged the Patna airport with garlands to welcome party chief.
This is Shah’s first visit after Nitish Kumar’s JD-U joined the National Democratic Alliance in July 2017 after dumping the Rashtriya Janata Dal and Congress of the Grand Alliance.
