Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 28 called the Grand Alliance’s chief ministerial face Tejashwi Prasad Yadav the ‘Yuvraj’ (prince) of the Jungle Raj. Addressing rallies in Darbhanga, Muzaffarpur and Patna, he not only criticised the 15-year long Lalu-Rabri regime but also came down heavily on Tejashwi Prasad Yadav.
He blamed the entire Lalu-Rabri family for loot and corruption in Bihar. In Darbhanga he made a special reference to the development of the Mithilanchal belt, the land of Sita. He didn’t forget to mention his government’s commitment to build Ram Temple in Ayodhya and also made reference to the dilution of Article 370.
Modi’s election rally in Patna came under criticism from the opposition as polling was going on in several Assembly constituencies in the district. However it is true that in Veterinary College ground, where the program was held, is in urban Patna where election was not scheduled today.
Unlike in his first election trip on October 23, Modi sounded more aggressive against Tejashwi and at the same time hailed the performance of chief minister Nitish Kumar. However he once again didn’t criticise the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) in his rallies but went on to say that BJP, JD-U, HAM and VIP are the four constituents of the NDA.
