BJP patriach L K Advani will visit Bihar on Tuesday to address election meetings in favour of NDA candidates on the last date of campaigning for first leg of the six-phase state Assembly polls starting from October 21.
Advani will address election meetings at Motihari, Muzaffarpur and Darbhanga on Monday, BJP national spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters in Patna.
He rapped the media for speculating that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had sought to influence the BJP leadership to keep Advani, a votary of the Ram temple construction at Ayodhya, and other leaders at bay in order to keep the minorities in good humour for votes.
On joint campaigning by top BJP and JD(U) leaders for NDA candidates, Prasad said the BJP leaders have been campaigning for the candidates of their coalition partner and the vice versa.
"If the need be, leaders of the two parties may campaign together," the BJP leader said.
Prasad exuded confidence that the NDA will ride on political consolidation among the electorate to give the ruling coalition and a historic verdict.
"The results of the Bihar Assembly polls will be historic and beyond expectation as a silent revolution is taking place in the masses to bring back the NDA government to power for a second term," the BJP leader said.
