Bihar polls: Narendra Modi claims 'phenomenal enthusiasm for NDA' ahead of third phase

The Prime Minister is expected to address 15 more rallies over the next two weeks.

On Twitter, Modi wrote,

Bihar is all set for change. Phenomenal enthusiasm for NDA. Will address rallies in Marhaura, Hajipur, Nalanda and Sona.

A day ago, party president Amit Shah said his party would form the next government in Bihar by winning polls with a comfortable majority.

Whereas, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of “lowering” the dignity of his post by using words like ‘shaitan'(devil) and ‘ahankari’ (arrogant) for political rivals and questioning their DNA.

“A Prime Minister can campaign for his party. But in Bihar elections, the PM has no control over language and is using words like ‘shaitan and ahankari for rivals and questioning their DNA,” Kumar said addressing an election rally at Lalganj in Vaishali district.

Few days ago, senior BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha blamed party leaders in Bihar for “cancellation” of rallies to be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as star campaigner for the ongoing Assembly polls in the state.

Sinha, who has been lately making veiled attacks on the party leadership, also took potshot at the Prime Minister for the last minute “cancellation”.

A situation that led our star campaigner PM to cancel his Bihar rallies at the last minute…sending a negative message???
