    Congress won't team up with Lalu.
    Im interested in seeing how much of a change Rahul can make in the congress's fortunes in Bihar.
    Not to forget vote share, vote swing due to Incumbent Govt.

    NCP meeting over Bihar polls Sep 12

    New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will hold a meeting of its election committee in Patna Sep 12 to decide the number of seats the party will contest in the upcoming Bihar assembly polls.

    NCP leader Tariq Anwar said there was a view within the party to go it alone in the elections. "There is demand from party workers to contest maximum number of seats to build the party," Anwar told IANS.

    Asked about the possibility of an alliance with the Congress, Anwar said there had been no talk of seat adjustment between the two parties.

    Both NCP and Congress are part of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government at the centre.

    NCP had won one of the eight seats it contested in the October 2005 assembly elections in Bihar.

    The assembly elections to the 243-member Bihar assembly will be held in six phases beginning Oct 21.

    Cong to finalize Bihar assembly poll candidates in a fortnight

    New Delhi, Sept 8 (PTI) Congress will finalize its candidates for Bihar assembly polls within a fortnight with greater representation to youth in line with Rahul Gandhi's plans to infuse fresh blood in the organization. An indication to this effect was given by Congress state chief Mehboob Ali Kaiser who met Congress President Sonia Gandhi today. "We congratulated her on her re-election as the party chief. The issue of Bihar election was also discussed. We informed her that that Pradesh Election Committee (PEC) will be meeting soon to prepare the list of candidates," Kaiser told reporters after meeting Gandhi and AICC general secretary in-charge of the state Mukul Wasnik. The PEC is meeting on September 12 and September 13. Kaiser said the party will try to announce names of candidates for all the seats in one go, which could happen on September 20 or 21, a few days after the screening committee meets here September 15 or 16. "The list is almost ready. It will be announced after the meeting of the PEC and the Central Election Committee by the middle of this month," a senior AICC leader involved in the exercise said. The leader said the focus will be on giving tickets to youth and accommodating all sections of society. "Youths will be the harbinger of change in Bihar. More than 60 percent voters of the state are aged between 20 to 40 years among whom Rahul Gandhi has an instant appeal. We are heavily banking on them," another leader said. Sources said Rahul Gandhi will be the star campaigner for the party. Enthused by the success of his recent rallies in Saharsa and Samastipur, AICC has asked the state leadership to prepare a list of assembly segments where they want Gandhi to campaign. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi will also address election rallies in Bihar, a leader said. Rahul Gandhi had visited the state earlier this year to prepare the ground for the organisational elections for the Indian Youth Congress. Since then, elections have been held and two representatives each from the panchayat, assembly and Lok Sabha segment wise have been chosen for the IYC. The six-phased Bihar assembly elections will begin on October 20. The term of the 243-member assembly will end on November 27.

    RJD vs JD-U and LJP vs BJP in Bihar polls

    Bihar Assembly elections will witness the Lalu Prasad Yadav-led RJD taking on the state chief minister Nitish Kumar-led JD(U), while the Ram Vilas Paswan-led LJP would be pitted mostly against the state deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi-led BJP. The RJD-LJP seat-adjustments appear to have been made in such a way that the LJP would largely contest the urban areas against the BJP, while the RJD would be slugging it out against the JD(U) in most of the rural areas of Bihar.

    Though the RJD-LJP have not yet made the details of their seat-adjustment public except for that the RJD would be contesting 168 Assembly seats, while the LJP would field candidates on 75 constituencies, they are stated to have divided their domain in rural and urban areas.
    Sources said that the LJP would be fielding candidates in the Patna urban areas where the BJP have sitting legislators. Further, the LJP would be fielding candidates from the urban areas of Motihari, Bhagalpur, Buxar, Hajipur, which again have largely been the areas from where the BJP won in the 2005 Assembly elections. “Since the BJP largely has its vote base in the urban areas and among the upper castes and the traders community, the LJP will be seeking to take on the saffron party in such areas. The LJP will be fielding a large number of candidates from the upper castes to cash in on the anger among the caste groups against the ruling NDA in the state,â€￾ stated a senior RJD leader.
    The RJD, which is attemp-ting to weave around a caste equation of other backward castes (OBCs), Muslims and Rajputs, is stated to contest against the JD(U) in large number of constituencies. “The RJD is to contest on most number of seats in the areas of North Bihar, including Saharsa, Madhubani, Madhepura, as Yadavs are in formidable numbers there,â€￾ the leader said.

    Modi dares Lalu to contest assembly polls

    PATNA: Deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Friday challenged RJD supremo and RJD-LJP combine's chief ministerial candidate Lalu Prasad to resign his Lok Sabha membership and contest the assembly election, if he was so sure of his popularity.

    The rebuttal of Modi, who, like CM Nitish Kumar, is member of Bihar legislative council, follows Lalu's challenge to him to contest the assembly election. Modi said that he, in his entire political career since the student days, had not lost any election that he contested. In contrast, Lalu had lost parliamentary elections in his "forts (read constituencies with predominantly Yadav caste people)" like Chhapra, Madhepura and Pataliputra.

    Modi also said that he had not resorted to backdoor tactics to grab power, and reminded Lalu that only he was 'expert" at this game. For, when Lalu was to be jailed due to alleged involvement in fodder scam, he made his wife Rabri Devi state's CM and remained CM through remote control, Modi said, adding that even after his release from the jail, he ruled unconstitutionally from CM's official residence.

    Stating that the BJP was not a party ruled by a single person, Modi said that he did not need certificate on his acceptability from a leader like Lalu who changed statements frequently. tnn

    BJP in dilemma over choosing Narendra Modi as campaigner for Bihar polls

    The question whether Narendra Modi will campaign in the Bihar polls continues to pose a dilemma for the BJP, with a senior leader today saying that the Gujarat chief minister will be part of the canvassing team but later retracted his statement.

    "All stalwart leaders of the party will be part of the joint campaign for the Bihar assembly polls," BJP vice president Muktar Abbas Naqvi told reporters in New Delhi.

    Asked repeatedly if Modi would be part of the campaign he said, "Modi is one of our stalwart leaders. Definitely he will be part of the campaign".

    However, a little later after the media briefing he retracted his remark on Modi and said no decision has been taken on who would be the leaders to campaign in the Bihar polls.

    "It is premature. The final decision (on campaigners) will be taken after consultations with leaders at the state and national level," he said.

    A bitter row involving Modi and the Bihar chief minister had threatened the alliance when a miffed Nitish Kumar returned the relief fund cheque of Rs5 crore for 2008 Kosi flood victims to Modi government in June this year.

    Kumar had objected to advertisements that appeared in Bihar newspapers during the BJP national executive in Patna that featured him and Modi holding hands and spoke about the help given by Gujarat government to the flood victims.

    Naqvi evaded a direct reply when asked if BJP MP from Pilibhit Varun Gandhi would be be among the campaigners for Bihar polls and said, "any other question?".

    To a query if seat sharing could be an issue for BJP-JD(U) in certain districts due to delimitation, Naqvi said that this was the first assembly election after the delimitation process and he did not foresee any seat sharing issues.
