Patna: Considering Muslim votes crucial for victory, the state ruling party Janata Dal-United (JD-U) has given good representation to Muslims in its newly constituted state committee. The state assembly elections will be held later this year. Since the last assembly by-poll in which several seats were won by Lalu Yadav’s RJD and Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP pushing JD-U at No. 3, the party and its leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar have taken several measures to please Muslims.
