Bihar BJP expects significant organisational changes




Following its defeat in Bihar, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is anticipated to extend its social base and make significant organisational changes.

In New Delhi on Tuesday, the state BJP core committee and the party’s national leadership discussed the adjustments.

The conference was called after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar severed his ties with the BJP in Bihar and formed the Grand Alliance led by the Rashtriya Janata Dal this month.

The local leadership, according to BJP leaders, was not seen with the same satisfaction as Prime Minister Narendra Modi. By the second week of September, when the party’s Bihar chief Sanjay Jaiswal’s term ends, the state organisation should have undergone reform. The [Tuesday] meeting’s agenda included choosing a new Bihar BJP president and a formidable opposition leader, according to a BJP leader who asked to remain anonymous.

Extremely Backward Classes (ECB) and Mahadalits, the primary voter bases of Kumar’s Janata Dal (United), have been targeted by the BJP.

According to the estimates, Dalits and Scheduled Tribes make up 17% of the state’s population, while EBC and other backward classes make up close to 50%.

Jaiswal claimed that on Tuesday, they talked about Bihar’s political situation in light of the formation of a new alliance government that has betrayed the will of the people. “In the 2024 Lok Sabha polls, we will win no less than 35 [out of 40] seats and emerge a stronger party in state.”
