NEW DELHI: The upcoming Bihar assembly polls will be based on the agenda of good governance, progress and development on the one hand and  anarchy, bad governance and corruption on the other, claimed BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday.

“Today the Bihar election is based on GDP versus ABC. GDP stands for good governance, development and progress, whereas, ABC stands for anarchy, bad governance and corruption,” Naqvi told ANI here.

On Chief Minister Nitish Kumar also pulling out of Rahul Gandhi’s rally in west Champaran today, Naqvi said, “ ‘Jab Raat hai itni matwali to subah ka alam kya hoga’. Before elections, if leaders of the Mahagathbandhan are unwilling to share the stage together, then, it only reflects their willingness to accept defeat.”

“The Mahagathbandhan is formed, but there are differences between parties They(grand alliance)are still not ready to face each other. If they are ashamed of each other, I am wondering how the people of Bihar will stand with them. That’s why the alliance of Nitish, Congress and Lalu Prasad will be ousted in the coming Bihar assembly polls,” Naqvi added.

Earlier, Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad had said he would not attend Gandhi’s rally.

The term of the 243-member Bihar assembly comes to an end on November 29. Polls in the state will begin on October 12 and end on November 5. Counting of votes will take place on November 8.
