In the face of its drubbing in the recent Lok Sabha polls, RJD on Friday decided to restructure its party cells in a four-hour brainstorming session.
"We discussed at length the reasons behind RJD's poor performance in Lok Sabha polls. The party and its various cells will be restructured," Raghuvansh Prasad Singh, head of party's fact-finding committee, told PTI.
The party's organisational structure would be over-hauled, he added.
RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Thursday formed a 21-member committee headed by Singh to assess the party's failure and suggest measures to revive it.
RJD won four out of 40 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar.
"The party's leaders and workers would visit villages to hear their grievances and expose the failures of Nitish government," Singh said.
The committee, of which Lalu was not a member, held a session at party's state headquarters in Patna, which was attended by state president Abdul Bari Siddique, Shakeel Ahmed Khan, Ramchandra Purbe and Pitamber Paswan.
However, party's two national general secretaries Shyam Rajak and Ram Kirpal Yadav were absent from the meeting.
