A day after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar returned the flood relief money to Narendra Modi Government, BJP on Sunday said the central leadership will meet tomorrow to discuss the political developments in the state.
"BJP Central leadership is keeping an eye on the political situation in Bihar. Our party president and other senior leaders are not in the capital. They will be here tomorrow and we will discuss the issue," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.
With BJP President Nitin Gadkari expected to reach the capital on Sunday, a meeting of the party top brass is likely to be held on Monday.
Hussain said Gadkari would be apprised of the developments in Bihar, including the return of Rs 5 crore flood relief money that was given to the state for Kosi flood relief in 2008.
When asked if BJP had any plans of doing it alone in the forthcoming Bihar elections in October, Hussain said there had been no such discussion in the party on the issue till now.
BJP leader and Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Kumar Modi, on Sunday, pulled out of functions to be addressed by Nitish. Sources said other BJP leaders in Bihar have also been asked not to attend the Vishwas Yatra. The programme was later cancelled.
