BJP Parliamentary board to decide Bihar CM: Shahnawaz Hussain
Motihari, May 14: Amid uncertainty over BJP's chief ministerial face in Bihar assembly polls due later this year, party National Spokesman Shahnawaz Hussain today said a decision on it will be taken by its Parliamentary board.
There are a number of leaders like Sushil Kumar Modi, Nandkishore Yadav, state unit BJP chief Mangal Pandey and some central ministers from Bihar who could be projected as the chief ministerial candidate, he told newspersons here.
He said more than projecting its chief ministerial face the immediate challenge before the party is to win the Bihar election for which the state and central units were working in close coordination.
"We will accomplish our party president Amit Shah's 'Bihar Mission' and win at least 185 seats out of the total 243 in Bihar in the assembly polls this year," Hussain said.
The BJP national spokesman claimed that the political mood in Bihar clearly favoured BJP to sweep the assembly polls with its allies as the people were disenchanted with the Nitish Kumar government being supported by RJD supremo Lalu Prasad.
Shahnawaz Hussain, a former Union minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, said the NDA government led by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has dealt with issues like Land Acquisition Bill, black money and price rise in the "best possible manner in the interest of the country and its people."
