Amit Shah begins Bihar tour for final poll push

Joined by party's election in-charge Ananth Kumar, the BJP chief, who arrived here today, will preside over nine regional meetings across the state in which key leaders and workers from all 38 districts will participate, Bihar BJP spokesperson Sanjay Mayukh said.

He will also work to placate the dissident voices that have arisen over a number of reasons, from tickets being given to turncoats from JD(U) and RJD and allegedly to those with criminal background to denial of nomination to the kin of some leaders.

"Amit Shah wants to ensure that the entire party apparatus is solidly behind the goal to win the assembly elections as the last leg of campaign starts. Whatever tactical changes in campaign or toning up of management at local and booth level is required will be done by him," a party source added.
