Never said that the defeat in Bihar was due to leadership: Anwar
Congress general secretary Tariq Anwar, while clarifying on his earlier statement on Friday, said that he never said that the defeat in Bihar was due to party leadership. Anwar said that we had only talked about reviewing the defeat. I am from Bihar, as well as the General Secretary of the Congress, so I myself took responsibility for the defeat.
Anwar said, “We are not ignoring the election results. It will be reviewed how our performance has deteriorated so that the results in future elections can improve. Anwar had tweeted a day earlier that the Grand Alliance missed out on forming the government due to poor performance of the Congress.

The name of Kameshwar Chaupal, who is closely associated with the Sangh to the post of Deputy CM, is being considered at the forefront.
At the same time, Independent MLA from Chakai Sumit Singh met Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and gave his support to him. Sumit is the son of former minister Narendra Singh. Actually, BJP wants to cultivate caste equations through it.
