PATNA: With an eye on the 2020 assembly polls, Bihar’s ruling JD(U) on Saturday held a crucial meeting of its all-district in charges and assembly constituency in charges at the party’s state headquarters here and asked the field leaders to gird up their loins from today itself to ensure victory of Nitish Kumar-led NDA in the next state election. “All fields in charges of the party should get ready from today itself for the 2020 assembly election. All the in charge should understand that they have the great responsibility of the party. Our main goal is to make the government of Nitish-led NDA once again in the state. To achieve this goal, we have just some months left. For us, each day is important,” JD(U) national general secretary (organization) and party’s leader in Rajya Sabha Ram Chandra Prasad Singh said while exhorting the party leaders at the meeting. He said the JD(U) workers should not bother about the ‘identity’ of the party. “The JD(U) and its leader Nitish Kumar’s identity is based on their works. Nitish Kumar is known for his works,” Singh, popularly known as RCP, told the party leaders. Stressing the need for strengthening the organization at booth-level, Singh said, “A polling booth is ‘neev’ (foundation) of JD(U). If our leaders are active at the district and the state level, but they are not paying due attention to the booth level, then their activeness in useless for the party.” Singh, who is considered no-2 in the JD(U) after its national president Nitish Kumar, also said that the party would ensure that active and dedicated workers were allotted symbol to contest the next assembly polls. “RCP Singh further asked the party’s field in charges to ensure the appointment of ‘booth president’ and ‘booth secretary’ at all polling booths across the state by December 5. He asked party leaders to launch a special drive on every Saturday and Sunday to appoint booth-level office-bearers,” JD(U)’ state general secretary (headquarters) Navin Kumar Arya, who conducted the meeting, told TOI. Bihar has more than 72,000 polling booths. Other prominent leaders who attended the meeting were the party MLCs Sanjay Kumar Singh alias Gandhijee and Ranvir Nandan, state general secretaries Anil Kumar and Paramhans Kumar and JD(U) media cell president Amardeep.
