At its national executive meeting held at the official residence of JD-U chief Nitish Kumar here, the party also decided to go it alone in the upcoming Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir, Jharkhand, Haryana and Delhi.
The decision is being seen as Bihar Chief Minister's reply to the BJP after JD-U opted out of the new government at the Centre last month, reportedly as it was offered just one seat in the Cabinet appointments.
Sources said Nitish Kumar appealed to JD-U workers and leaders to strengthen the party outside Bihar and focus on its month-long drive to recruit new members. The last membership drive was held three years ago in 2016.
The JD-U plans to strengthen the party from the panchayat to the national level by inducting new members. Last year, the party had set a target of inducting 50 lakh new members. --IANS
