Patna : Claiming that the Congress has been in deep slumber in Bihar for decades, senior BJP leader Radha Mohan Singh on Thursday claimed that not even the Rahul Gandhi factor would work for the party going by his performance in various states, barring Uttar Pradesh.

The Congress was not a factor in the Bihar assembly polls either on its own or even by banking upon the AICC General Secretary's charisma as he had failed to dish out desired results for the party in the assembly polls in several states, Singh told reporters here.

The Congress did miserably in the assembly bypolls in Uttar Pradesh recently despite the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi family putting in his best, Singh, a former state unit BJP chief, said.

On the electoral strategy of the BJP, the junior coalition partner in the NDA government, the BJP MP from East Champaran said that the top party leaders like the state unit in-charge Ananth Kumar, his deputy Dharmendra Pradhan would finalise the campaign on September 12.

On the seat sharing formula between the JD(U) and BJP, Singh said that there was absolute clarity on the number of seats to be contested by the two parties, but exchange of some constituencies was expected to take place in view of the demographic change post-delimitation. PTI
