Union Home Minister Amit Shah will speak at a public gathering in Bihar today during his second trip there in three weeks.
On the eve of Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan’s 120th birthday, the home minister will also dedicate a statue honouring the political figure, socialist theorist, and champion for Indian independence at the Sitab Diara neighbourhood near the Uttar Pradesh-Bihar border. The ancestral village of Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan is Sitab Diara, which is situated on the boundary between UP and Bihar.
Around noon on Tuesday in the Sitab Diara region of Bihar’s Saran district, the Home Minister will address the crowd of onlookers following the unveiling of the monument of Jayaprakash Narayan.
Shah will be making his second trip to Bihar in the last three weeks.
In order to create a new administration in the state, the JD(U) severed its relations with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in August of this year.
On September 23–24, Shah paid a two-day visit to Bihar’s bordering Purnia and Kishanganj areas. He spoke at a “Jan Bhavna Mahasabha” and presided over the BJP State Core Committee meeting.
One of Bihar’s thirty-eight districts is Purnia. During his visit to Bihar in September, he also met with the MPs, MLAs, and former ministers of the Bihar BJP in the city of Kishanganj.
Shah’s second trip to Bihar in as many weeks is noteworthy since it appears to be part of the party’s preparation for strong showings in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
