Bihar election 2020 LIVE updates: Bihar election 2020 LIVE updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday began addressing four rallies in Bihar that is voting for three-phased elections, the country's biggest in the coronavirus pandemic.
Bihar will reelect the "double engine" government of Janata Dal United and the Bharatiya Janata Party, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, alleging the Opposition will bring back "jungle raj”. He also said that the public response during the Bihar Assembly elections clearly indicated that the new government in the state will again be formed under Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's leadership.
This is his third visit to Bihar in the last few weeks where Nitish Kumar--the National Democratic Alliance's chief ministerial candidate--is seeking a fourth term.
Modi started his election tour with a rally in Chapra, the political bastion of Lalu Prasad, the Rashtriya Janata Dal leader who is serving a prison sentence in corruption cases. News agency PTI reported Modi will then speak at Samastipur, Motihari and Bagaha. The first phase of Bihar election were held on Wednesday.
