PM Modi to kick-off BJP's campaign in Bihar from Muzaffarpur
July 03, 2015 10:32 AM
Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi will again be in the populist mode for his party for the upcoming Bihar assembly polls. A BJP source claimed that the PM will kick-off the party's campaign for the state assembly polls from Muzaffarpur towards the end of July. It is believed that the party workers and top officials in the state will take a lot of heart out of Modi's aggressive election campagining approach to take on the united opponents comprising six major parties including the ruling JD (U), RJD and Samajvadi Party (SP). At the first public rally scheduled to be held in Muzaffarpur, Modi will be accompanied by top NDA allies and leaders. A BJP leader said, Muzaffarpur is known as the gateway to northern Bihar. It covers the regions of Mithila, Tirhut and Saran where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is in a good position. It is close to Koshi area, where the party has a weak support base. Even during the Lok Sabha polls when BJP registered remarkable victory elsewhere, the party managed to win just one seat in the Koshi belt. Significantly, the area comprising towns like Purnia, Bhagalpur and Kishanganj has high concentration of Muslim population". Source: News Reports

July 02, 2015 02:29 PM

The RJD has termed it as a 'welcome step'.

No dearth of leaders for Bihar polls: Shahnawaz Hussain
July 02, 2015 11:17 AM
BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain on Wednesday said that there was a whole pool of leaders with the BJP who will be serious contenders for the upcoming Bihar assembly polls. The senior BJP leader also said that the name of the possible CM candidate for Bihar polls will be decided by the BJP top brass in the parliamentary board meeting. "We have a a galaxy of leaders (in Bihar) ... But in BJP it is only the Parliamentary Board that decides on issues like declaring the chief ministerial face or going to polls under collective leadership. Let us leave the decision on chief ministerial face to our parliamentary board to decide," he said. Hussain maintained that there was no pressure on the party to decide on a Chief Ministerial candidate, while their rivals did the same as they had only one name to rely on- Bihar's incumbent CM Nitish Kumar.

BJP's defeat essential in Bihar polls: CPI
July 01, 2015 04:07 PM
The Communist Party of India said that it was essential that the BJP is defeated in the forthcoming Bihar assembly elections for the "reunification of the communist movement". The CPI termed the Bihar polls as 'crucial' in many ways. D. Raja, National Secretary of CPI said, "We have to fight elections this year and in September or October most likely, we have elections in Bihar. In this national council, we are going to discuss what should be our electoral tactical line in Bihar. It is going to be crucial elections. We think there is a need to defeat BJP and at the same time there is a need to strengthen Left and ensure effective presence of Left in the assembly". Source: News Reports

About Bihar Assembly (Vidhan Sabha) Constituencies

Originally consisting of a total of 152 members, the Legislative Assembly of Bihar came into being in 1937. The first-ever general elections in the state were held in 1952 in conformity to the provisions of the Constitution of India. The state was divided into 331 assembly constituencies, for which 330 members were directly elected while the one was nominated. The number of constituencies was reduced to 318 in the second general elections of Bihar in 1957. The number of members in the assembly was raised again from 318 to 325 in 1977. But it again came down to 243 in the year 2000, when the Bihar Reorganisation Act was enacted by the Parliament of India and the state of Jharkhand was created.
