Patna, June 10 (IANS) Bihar’s ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) has set up a “war room” ahead of assembly elections — on the advice of a former aide to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
It was one of the many ideas suggested by Prashant Kishore, who assisted Modi during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, a JD-U leader said.
Kishore also asked JD-U spokespersons to give a “balanced response” when allegations are hurled against the JD-U.
Kishore, who is now pitching for Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s victory in the Bihar assembly polls likely in September-October, also asked the JD-U to set up a “war room” and improve its media cell.
Senior JD-U leaders K.C. Tyagi and Pawan Verma will be among those in charge of the “war room”.
Nitish Kumar on Tuesday launched a high-tech ‘Badh Chala Bihar’ (Bihar Forges Ahead) initiative to reach out to people to seek their ideas on issues of governance.
