New Delhi, Nov 21 After winning the Bihar election where the RJD-led alliance was tipped to be the favourite, BJP President JP Nadda decided to go on a 100-day nationwide tour to strengthen organizations, strategise and set goals for the state leaderships. India's North-East seems to have caught his immediate attention where he will start his India tour by visiting poll bound Assam this Thursday followed by a visit to Mizoram next Saturday, where a local body election, crucial for the BJP's growth in the state, is due on December 4. He also has plans to return to the North-East, where the BJP has consistently done well, to visit Nagaland and Meghalaya.
Assam will go to the polls next year and the BJP, while it believes it has an edge over its main rival, the Congress, local resentment over the Centre's Citizenship Amendment Act is a matter of concern for the party. To retain the BJP's stronghold in the North-East, retaining Assam is pivotal for the BJP.
No wonder, Nadda will be accompanied by a battery of senior central leadersduring his two-day visit to Assam, including newly appointed Assam in-charge Jay Panda, and the party's powerful General Secretary
