Campaigning for the second phase of the Bihar elections is on in full swing. BJP – JD(U) together held more than 25 rallies on Friday. Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Ravi Shankar Prasad addressed multiple rallies in Raghopur, Bhagalpur, Motihari, and Vaishali.
Attacking opposition party RJD, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar appealed to voters not “get misled” by those who ignored women and backward classes during their rule. He called Tejashwi’s poll promises ‘bogus’. “These people keep saying we will give you jobs. All this is bogus talk. They will say anything. They will try to mislead and confuse people.” Said Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
Union Minister and star campaigner Rajnath Singh is leaving no stone unturned to attack the RJD. “People have seen the 15-year rule of ‘lalten’ and they have also seen the development of Bihar during the BJP-JD(U) alliance government. The performance of these two governments cannot be compared. The state transformed under the NDA government.” Rajnath Singh said while reaching out to voters supporting the BJP and hoping to gain some votes from the Nitish support base.
BJP party national president JP Nadda leveled serious allegations against Tejashwi Yadav during his public meeting. “I want to tell Tejashwi Yadav that both his parents have been the Chief Ministers here, why did he remove their faces from his poster? If the face is removed, why are they not asking for forgiveness from the people of Bihar?” Said JP Nadda.
The Chief Ministerial face of the mahagathbandhan or grand alliance, Tejashwi Yadav addressed a rally in support of CPI candidate in Teghra. On an average, Tejashwi is addressing 12 rallies in a day. On October 28, Tejashwi addressed 16 rallies which is a maximum for any leader in the current campaign season in Bihar.
Amidst blows from political opponents in every nook and cranny, he stood his ground in a rally. “We want to talk about the present and the future. These people can have their rotten pages of history. Were they not in power for 15 years as well? ₹ 30,000 crore was swindled in scams. Ask anyone about the kind of corruption still there in every police station.” Said Tejashwi Yadav.
91 assembly seats will go to polls on November 3 in the second phase of elections in Bihar. Poll results will be out on November 10.
