Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Drawing younger generations of voters into the BJP's support base will be a priority of the party's newly-appointed unit president Nityanand Rai, who termed his new responsibility as a challenge in a state dominated by the rival JD(U)-RJD alliance.

"Getting more and more support from the younger generations of people for will be a priority. I see the new responsibility as a challenge," he said, soon after the party made the announcement.

The party's organisation in the state is strong and competent and he will work to strengthen it further to take on the government, the 50-year-old first-time MP said outside Parliament.

He said the victory of JD(U)-RJD-alliance in the state in the last assembly polls in 2015 was "unfortunate".

People, he said, are supporting under Prime Minister Modi's leadership like never before following the decision.

"I am seeing a popular support for which I have never witnessed for any decision of a in the past," he said.
