Bihar Elections 2020: 'Dedicated my life to Bihar, those who inherited everything know nothing,' says Nitish Kumar | Highlights
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: The second phase of Bihar Assembly elections 2020 will take place on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. As many as 98 assembly constituencies will go to polls in the second phase of Bihar elections. The electioneering for the second phase ended on Sunday and the NDA went all-in with as many as four rallies of PM Modi and several more by their CM face Nitish Kumar. During his campaign rallies, the prime minister once again played the same old dynasty card against the Congress and RJD, saying that "double Yuvraj" are trying to save their "respective thrones".
"On the one hand, there is development brought in by the double engine government of the NDA. On the other, there are this double-double Yuvraj with the sole agenda of saving their thrones," the prime minister said.
Here are the highlights of the day:
01:05 pm: UP CM Yogi Adityanath addresses a public rally in Balmiki Nagar, West Champaran. "Be it Congress or RJD, they only know how to cheat people. They've been dividing the society on the basis of caste, region & religion. Don't expect them ever to unite people," he said.
12:15 pm: "Those who inherited everything know nothing about the tenacity of a 'Karma Yogi'. We have dedicated ourselves to this sacred land of Bihar. To serve is my religion," says Nitish Kumar.
जिन्हें सबकुछ विरासत में हासिल हुआ उन्हें कर्मवीरों के तप के बारे में क्या पता। हमने तो अपना सर्वस्व बिहार की इस पावन धरती के लिये समर्पित कर दिया है। सेवा करना ही मेरा धर्म है। pic.twitter.com/VpghSIV93c— Nitish Kumar (@NitishKumar) November 2, 2020
011:10 am: "CM has been wearing 'Sushasan' babu tag for the last 15 years. But now, his loot is being exposed. He never spoke about Munger & doesn’t speak a word on corruption. He is known as Paltiram as he was against Lalu & then formed govt with them in 2015. What can be a bigger crime than your own cops firing on innocent people & shooting Durga bhakts. Nitish Kumar govt has become a form of Mahisasur. Everyone knows that crowd swells up during Durga Puja, so will you shoot at people to control crowd?" he was quoted as saying by news agency ANI
10:30 am: Nitish Ji is not able to handle Bihar. There're only 77 policemen per lakh population in Bihar & job vacancies have not been filled. We're asking the public to give us a chance, so we can do what CM couldn't achieve in 15 years. His farewell is guaranted: RJD Chief Tejashwi Yadav
08:35 am: If you were a voter in Bihar what do they tell you about unemployment, jobs, new industries, MSP for food grains, crop insurance, flood relief, women’s safety etc. The answer is ZILCH — nothing. You are being asked to vote for NDA on a message that contains NOTHING.
07:45 am: What do I say if they are ignoring unemployment and basic facts and making personal attacks? If there is any shortcoming, they should criticize the leadership skills, policy decisions and ideology and not the individual. Bihar's 60 per cent population is youth, they want the votes of youth but not a youth leader: Tejashwi Yadav
07:30 am: "It is a double engine, not a double engine. Where was the double engine while bringing back the trapped workers in the lockdown?" Lalu Prasad asks.
