Union Home Minister Amit Shah‘s virtual rally in Bihar will be conducted on June 7 now. Earlier, it was scheduled to be conducted on June 9. The rally is scheduled at 4 pm where Shah will connect with the common people and Bihar activists virtually through a digital mean.
A section of the BJP feels Nitish Kumar has been drawing a lot of criticism because he handled the migrant crisis, which could harm the BJP’s prospects in Bihar.
Bihar Health Minister Mangal Pandey took to Twitter informing about the change.
आगामी 7 जून को भारत के यशश्वी गृह मंत्री एवं भाजपा के पूर्व राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष माननीय @AmitShah जी बिहार के लोगो को वर्चुअल रैली के द्वारा सम्बोधित करेंगे | आप अवश्य सुने ….. pic.twitter.com/sT4BuQzFY8

With the change in date of the virtual rally of Amit Shah, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav has also changed the date of ‘Gareeb Adhikar Diwas’ which was planned to counteract the rally of Amit Shah. ‘Gareeb Adhikar Diwas’ will be held on June 7 now.
Tejashwi Yadav believes that the change in dates by BJP is the result of the pressure they are in due to RJD.
In a tweet, Tejashwi Yadav said, “Under RJD pressure, BJP has decided to hold the proposed June 9 virtual rally on June 7. People are dying of corona and hunger but BJP is rallying. In retaliation for their insensitivity, RJD will also celebrate “Gareeb Adhikar Diwas” on June 7 itself. All Biharis will play thali-bowl on that day.
राजद के दबाव में BJP ने प्रस्तावित 9 जून की वर्चुअल रैली को अब 7 जून को करने का निर्णय किया है।
लोग कोरोना और भूख से मर रहे है लेकिन BJP रैली कर रही है। इनकी संवेदनहीनता के प्रतिकार में राजद भी अब 7 जून को ही “ग़रीब अधिकार दिवस” मनायेगी। सभी बिहारवासी उस दिन थाली-कटोरा बजाएंगे।

BJP State President Dr Sanjay Jaiswal said that the coronavirus pandemic has also impacted political campaigns. Therefore, this year party officials will interact with the workers virtually through video conferencing. The rally will also be broadcasted on TV screens. The programme will follow the social distancing norms and the common people will be able to see.
Bihar Legislative Assembly elections will be held in Bihar in October 2020 to elect 243 members of the Bihar Legislative Assembly. The term of the current assembly elected in 2015 will expire on 29 November 2020. This will be a fight between JDU led NDA and RJD led UPA.
