Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party's Hunkar Rally in Patna is a matter of honour for the friends turned foes BJP-JDU alliance as the latter snapped its 17 year old alliance with the former in June 2013 over Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
For the BJP, Hunkar rally is not just any other rally of their PM nominee. They are aiming at giving a befitting reply to Nitish Kumar who had during the days of his alliance with the BJP ensured that Modi is kept out of the state.
The BJP is set to focus on how to develop Bihar and also demand special category status for the state. The party has publicly said that it wants the Centre to grant an economic package of Rs 50,000 crore for Bihar.
