According to media sources, Bihar state administration has also rejected BJP's proposal of two bullet proof SUVs for Modi's cavalcade. The Bihar government has only two such vehicles and those are to be used by Nitish Kumar on Sunday. Thus, citing this reason, the administration has offered bullet proof ambassador car, which was rejected by the former ally of the Janata Dal (United).
This will be Modi's first rally in Bihar after he was declared PM nominee of the BJP. Earlier the Gujarat CM was banned from attending any campaign in the state. However, the Bihar BJP has left no stone unturned to ensure that Hunkar rally - the first big party event after the 17-year-old alliance with JD(U) ended on June 16 - makes an impact on the voters of the electorally crucial state.
