The announcement came on a day party president J P Nadda is holding talks with state BJP leaders in New Delhi to discuss the three-phase polls to the 243-member state assembly, including seat-sharing arrangements with allies like the Janata Dal-United and the Lok Janshakti Party

The LJP has been blowing hot and cold over the issue as it is said to be unhappy over the offer being made to it by the BJP.


For the last few weeks, Fadnavis had been participating in the party's internal meetings over the Bihar polls and has even visited the state a few times.

The BJP has the practice of appointing senior leaders as in-charge for state elections.

The Bihar assembly polls will be held in three phases on October 28, November 3 and November 7, and the counting of votes will take place on November 10.
