PATNA : Amid the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday visited Bihar BJP office and held discussions with senior party leaders to fine-tune the party’s strategy for the remaining two phases.

The PM held a brainstorming session with members of the party’s election management committee and discussed various issues with them.

Senior party leaders including deputy chief ministers Samrat Choudhary, Vijay Kumar Sinha and other senior party leaders were present.

Modi will also address two back-to-back rallies in Motihari and Siwan on Monday, going to the polls in the sixth phase of Lok Sabha election. Votes for the sixth phase of election will be cast on May 26.

Modi will seek votes for sitting BJP MP Radha Mohan Singh in Motihari. He will also address a public meeting at Goreakothi in Siwan district. The Goreakothi rally will cover both Siwan and Maharajganj Lok Sabha constituencies.

The Siwan Lok Sabha is witnessing a direct fight between former state assembly speaker and RJD candidate Awadh Bihari Choudhary and JD (U) candidate Vijayalakshmi Devi. In Maharajganj, sitting BJP MP Janardan Singh Sigriwal is pitted against Congress’ Aakash Prasad Singh, son of Bihar Congress chief Akhilesh Prasad Singh.

Modi reached the state capital on Monday evening and soon after landing at Jayaprakash Narayan International Airport, he drove straight to the residence of senior party leader and former deputy chief minister late Sushil Kumar Modi and paid tributes to him. Sushil Modi, who was battling cancer for more than six months, passed away at AIIMS in New Delhi recently.

At the airport, the PM was received by CM Nitish Kumar, deputy CMs Samrat Choudhary and Vijay Kumar Sinha.
