Meanwhile, reliable inside sources of JD (U) said that party’s political ideologies of equality, development, secularism and pro-people performances are being put before the people of other states to consolidate and assume the status of a national party.

“CM Nitish Kumar, who is still regarded as one of the most performing CMs of India and called also as ‘Sushashan Babu’  for his the best performances in governance and transferring a state like Bihar into a state of developments with the massive availability of power and wide motorable roads with good law and order. 

His qualities of being a statesman are the USPs of the party and getting promoted across the country”, a senior party leader  Dr Ashok Chaudhary said, adding that victory of party’s candidates in Arunachal Pradesh’s state assembly and Lok Sabha elections in Bihar show the party’s leadership quality.
