New Delhi. Bihar Chief Minister and the party president of Janata Dal (United) Nitish Kumar stated on Sunday that the JDU would contest the elections with National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and win more than 200 seats in the Assembly Polls in Bihar. Bihar holds 243 Assembly seats. Nitish Kumar was speaking at a party workers' meeting at Patna's Gandhi Maidan on his 69th birthday.


The JD (U) and the BJP between them have 124 seats in the 243-member House. The JD(U) has 70 members while the BJP has 54 MLAs in the outgoing assembly. "Let us resolve to ensure NDA will win more than 200 seats in Bihar assembly polls," Nitish Kumar told the media sources. Slamming the Congress-RJD alliance over the 1989 Bhagalpur riots, Kumar asserted that it was only after his government came to power in 2005 that the guilty were brought to book and the victims got justice.


The meeting at Gandhi Maidan witnessed the participation of booth presidents and secretaries from across the state. Kumar stressed that the state assembly had already passed a unanimous resolution against the NRC and the NPR and “patience” should be kept regarding the Citizenship Amendment Act and “controversies” avoided since the matter was before the court. Nitish Kumar added, "As far as National Population Register (NPR) is concerned, it will be on the basis of 2010 format and we have also passed the resolution in the State Legislative Assembly."
