According to sources from the BJP, the prime minister is expected to conduct 9 physical rallies across 3 phases. Amid the Covid situation, BJP has prepared to deploy 10,000 ‘social media commandos’ to enable the public to listen to the PM live. “We are trying to make sure that maximum people are connected through digital platforms for which the party has worked since June,” a party member said.

The sources reported that Devendra Fadnavis, former Maharashtra CM, and national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav were camping before finalizing the venues and dates for the PM rallies.
A senior party member confirmed that the schedule for the first phase would come out after the availability of the PM was confirmed in a couple of days. Party also added that there will be at least 5 party workers available at every booth to ease the experience of people. For the same, 4 lakh party cadres have been identified. BJP is likely to focus mainstream issues to highlight bold and decisive leadership of the Prime Minister like, India-China border issues, construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya, welfare measures in Bihar and Direct Transfer schemes.
Battleground in Bihar seems to be all set- JDU, BJP’s ally in Bihar, will contest 121 out of total 243 seats with the rest remaining with the former. BJP has also expressed that Nitish Kumar will be NDA’s CM candidate for the upcoming polls.
The voting will happen in three phases- on October 28, November 3 and 7 and counting on November 10.
