Patna: BJP president Amit Shah on Monday said here that the party will decide on the chief ministerial candidate after the BJP-led NDA wins two-thirds majority in the Bihar assembly polls.

“The party and the parliamentary board will decide the name of the chief minister candidate soon after we win two-thirds majority in polls,” Amit Shah said at a press conference.

Shah said people of Bihar are with them to stop return of the jungle raj. “People do not want jungle raj-2 and we will come to power in Bihar,” he said.

He said the Bharatiya Janata Dal-led NDA government is must for the much-awaited development of Bihar.

“Only (we) can develop Bihar because RJD chief Lalu Prasad, his wife Rabri Devi and Nitish Kumar-led government ruled the state for 25 years but it remained backward.”

Amit Shah said the grand alliance of the JD-U, RJD and the Congress has been trying to derail and divert the development issue in the polls by raising beef or reservation issues. “We are committed to the development of Bihar.”

During the staggered assembly elections, the BJP-led NDA’s primary issue has been of development.

Amit Shah reiterated that the BJP is not against reservation for Dalits and Other Backward Class. “We are in support of the reservation and we do not want any change in the present form of the reservation.”

He said the NDA is set to win 32-34 of the 49 assembly constituencies where polls were held in the first phase on October 12 and 22-24 of the 32 constituencies which went to the polls in the second phase on October 16.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government of being anti-Dalit and said his party will defeat the BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Gandhi, who led his party’s day-long fast at Rajghat to highlight atrocities against Dalits and other communities, said party workers were protesting against an ideology, a way of thinking.

Rahul Gandhi is against Modi and his rule.

“The atmosphere that has been created in the country, it is due to the ideology of the BJP. BJP’s ideology is to divide the country, crush the Dalits, tribals, minorities. We are against the ideology of the BJP. We are standing against it today, we will stand against it throughout our lives. And we will defeat them in the 2019 elections,” Gandhi told reporters.

Asked about BJP Dalit MPs writing to Modi with their complaints, Gandhi said: “You talk to them in Parliament. They also tell us that Modiji is a casteist person, an anti-Dalit person. He has no place for Dalits in his heart, the whole country knows this. It is not a secret.”

Gandhi attacked BJP President Amit Shah for likening the coming together of opposition parties to “snakes, mongoose, dogs and cats” climbing a tree trunk to save themselves from floods. He said every person in the country was against the BJP.

“Some days back a BJP leader said that opposition members were animals. The truth is that today every person in the country is standing against the government. The approach that this government has against Dalits, tribals, minorities and farmers, we are standing against it,” he said. Gandhi said the country will not accept that Modi government “spreads violence, hatred in the country… We are standing here against this ideology.”
