Amit Shah's Bihar visit receives positive response from Nitish Kumar
Patna,Bihar: Ahead of his visit to Lakhisarai, Union Home Minister Amit Shah received a warm welcome from Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who emphasized the state's open-door policy for visitors. This visit holds significance as it marks the first time a senior BJP leader has visited Bihar since the opposition meeting held in Patna on June 23, where discussions regarding the 2024 general election took place. During a press interaction in Patna, Mr. Kumar refrained from commenting on the Modi government's push for the Uniform Civil Code.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar expressed that everyone is welcome to visit Bihar and emphasized the right of individuals to do so when questioned about Amit Shah's planned visit to Lakhisarai. Regarding the recent opposition parties' meeting hosted by Kumar, he stated that discussions would be held at a later time. Shah is expected to arrive at the Jay Prakash Narayan International Airport and then proceed to Lakhisarai, where he will address a large rally after offering prayers at Ashok Dham. It has been nearly three months since Shah's last visit to the state. In anticipation of his visit, supporters from both the ruling Mahagathbandhan parties and the opposition BJP have displayed posters throughout Patna and near the airport, expressing their respective opinions and criticisms. The ruling alliance posters focused on criticizing the BJP for violence in Manipur and alleged misuse of central agencies, while BJP supporters countered with posters condemning the opposition unity. The ruling JD (U) spokesperson clarified that the party had no involvement in the creation of these posters, as they were the work of party workers expressing their own ideas.
He expressed that the messages conveyed in the posters were not incorrect and questioned the fulfillment of promises made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his NDA government to the people.
