By NewsGram Staff Writer

Patna: BJP enlisted three RSS pracharaks among its 40 star campaigners proving the support of RSS for BJP with high political stakes of RSS in mind.


A Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader from Dina assembly constituency was addressed as a BJP candidate since.

“The RSS has fully thrown its weight behind the BJP in Bihar polls. Thousands of RSS cadres and supporters from different parts of the country have been working to help the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance to defeat the grand alliance of the Janata Dal United, Rashtriya Janta Dal and the Congress” stated a BJP leader.

Another senior BJP leader communicated to IANS that RSS leaders Ram Lal, Saudan Singh and Nagenderji  would campaign in all 243 assembly constituencies and address public meetings to garner votes for BJP candidates.

The BJP is contesting 160 assembly seats with ally Lok Janshakti Party (40),Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (23) and Hindustani Awami Morcha (20) seats.

JD(U) spokesperson Sanjay Singh said a new development in Bihar polls could be the appointment of RSS leaders as star campaigners in BJP (pointing towards the backing of BJP by RSS in the polls.)

Sanjay Singh indicated that senior party leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had rightly described the RSS as the supreme count of the BJP. He questioned that was it the RSS that controlled the BJP and his government alike?
