New Delhi: Gujarat Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party poll campaign chief Narendra Modi will on Saturday address the party workers in Bihar via teleconference. This is a first of its kind hi-tech excercise through which Modi will address 1,500 BJP workers from the state including those from the panchayat level.

"The 2014 polls will be the main agenda. We will seek his guidance on how to win all 40 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar," said Bihar BJP leader Sanjay Mayukh.

Sources said Modi is keen to focus on the two Hindi heartlead states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar in a bid to win the 2014 elections.
