Seeking to revive the special status demand as its trump card for the Assembly polls next year, JD(U) on Thursday decided to hold dharna at all the district headquarters on October 20 to pressurise the Centre to grant the status to Bihar.
LJP president Ramvilas Paswan on Monday
accused Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of "dramatising" the
move to secure special category status for the state by
obtaining signatures of 1.25 crore people.
