“Bihar needs pace, Bihar needs wings, Bihar needs change. Because Bihar deserves better and better is possible. Join Plurals to make Bihar run and fly in 2020. #PluralsHasArrived #ProgressiveBihar2020," Choudhary tweeted.

"As Lasswell said, politics is who gets what, when and how. Following this, Bihar needs a blueprint and Plurals has a concrete roadmap for 2025 and 2030. Stay tuned for updates," she said in another tweet.
